MISSION

Pin Cancer is a call to action to help defeat the world’s toughest opponent by rallying the greater US wrestling community in the fight against cancer.

VISION

1 in 2 people are directly affected by cancer. Pin Cancer seeks to become how every level of the wrestling community can fight cancer and raise awareness, together.

HISTORY

Pin Cancer was founded in 2011 by a former wrestler Dan Tramontozzi after finding out his mother was diagnosed with Stage 3C Ovarian Cancer.

Being affected first hand, and still heavily involved with the wrestling community, Dan wanted to unite the sport and form an organization that could help inspire awareness and raise funds to support cancer research.​

He turned to his Bloomsburg roommate and long-time friend, Jared Ferreira who thought the story behind Dan’s plan was compelling and motivating. Jared, who has had success with developing businesses and non-profit programs himself immediately joined the team to expand on Dan’s vision.​
