On Thursday, May 5, FCancer, a cutting edge non-profit organization dedicated to early detection, prevention and providing support to those affected by cancer, hosted FCancer NYC #FCENYC at Marquee New York. The party, sponsored by Moose Knuckles, featured musical lineup headlined by Justin Bieber’s official tour DJ, DJ Tay James, with early sets by THE WIG, Nimo Lero, and Sted-E & Hybrid Heights. Proceeds from the event benefitted FCancer programs and the HPV & Anal Cancer Foundation.
- Due to generous support and success of fundraising efforts, FCancer NYC raised $20,000 for FCancer programs and the HPV & Anal Cancer Foundation.
- DJ Tay James stole the show spinning crowd-pleasing hits by Justin Bieber for 500 fans during his 2-hour set.
- Entrance to the event was in the form of FCancer t-shirts, rather than tickets. FCancer shirts come in a variety of colors, each of which represent a specific cancer ribbon.
- For those that missed out on the event, donations can be made online directly to FCancer’s digital initiatives, programs, and support tools at http://bit.ly/FCdonations.
FCancer is dedicated to the prevention and early detection of cancer; it is a movement that creates a raw and authentic space by harnessing the cumulative experience of their community, Generation Connected.

With wit, edge, and humor, FCancer is changing the way people talk about cancer. Through digital media, programs and events, FCancer believes its community will be the generation that ultimately improves health outcomes. FCancer is a tax-exempt 501(c) 3 registered charity co-founded by Yael Cohen Braun and Julie Greenbaum. For more information, visit LetsFCancer.com or follow @letsfcancer.
