Im pretty sure Will Ferrells statement says it all but i'm more than happy to make this my first project on crowdrise. I joined this project because like most people cancer has affected my family more than once and it's good to see that a charity like cancer for college is helping people that have survived cancer to move to the next stage of there lives after cancer. Much love Luke Candler

What if I told you we could play golf and send a cancer survivor to college? Preposterous you say? Well, let me tell you something, this is real. It's as real as that mole on your face that no one mentions but everyone talks about behind your back.
This is how it works...Everyone who makes a $26.00 donation to Cancer for College is automatically entered for a chance to join me at either the Will Powered Golf Classic and Comedy Show on August 26 in Temecula, CA or the grand prize of joining me for the inaugural Will Powered Invitational at the world famous Pebble Beach Golf Resort on Oct. 28-30.
All of your donations benefit my favorite charity, Cancer for College. It was founded by my good friend and two-time cancer survivor Craig Pollard to help cancer survivors realize their dream of going to college. You see hospital visits, surgeries and treatments are expensive, and families use every last resource to keep their loved ones alive. For these students and families, the battle isn't over even after the cancer has gone into remission. Now, there are bills and check ups and other worries too. For many of these victims, college is no longer an option.
Please help me raise money for this cause. Everyone knows I'm not curing cancer anytime soon, Lord knows I've spent hours in the lab trying. But, we can all join together and help these cancer survivors who have endured so much reach their goal of attending college.
