The Chase Hawks Memorial Association (CHMA)  Calves for Cancer program is a partnership with local cattle producers designed to raise funds for crisis situations related to cancer treatment. Better diagnostic techniques and more aggressive treatments have elevated the frequency of requests for help related to cancer, particularly for children. CHMA has experienced a considerable increase in requests for assistance with travel, lodging and other issues for cancer patients.

Agriculture is such a big part of the state’s economy, and cancer seems to leave no family untouched. This program gives cattle producers the opportunity to make an immediate impact on these family crisis situations by donating a calf to the Chase Hawks Memorial Association. CHMA will use the proceeds of the sale of that calf to fulfill requests directly related to cancer treatment. CHMA will issue a tag with the CHMA logo so that the producer may tag the calf of their choosing. The producer will market the calf with their other calves, and the proceeds of that calf will go directly into the crisis fund committed to cancer related issues.

The Chase Hawks Memorial Association, Inc is a 501(c)(3) charity, and your donation is tax deductible. The producer will receive a tax receipt for the donated livestock, as well as a logoed money clip, two premium rodeo tickets to the Roughstock Rodeo, and a custom jacket embroidered for this program.

To donate a calf to the CHMA Calves for Cancer Program please contact Lars Hanson at (406) 855-4663.

We will send you a packet containing: a CHMA numbered Calf Tag and Bill of Sale to Chase Hawks Memorial Association.  

Thank you so much for your careful consideration of this program. I believe it is a very simple way to make sure that your donation goes directly for area cancer families in need. All funds raised will be distributed with no administrative or peripheral costs.
