About Us

Inspired by both their late mother, Karen, and sister, Sherry, who experienced the significant hardships of cancer, sisters Christi and Shelley Shaw established More Moments More Memories Foundation in 2017 through the Community Foundation of Greater Dubuque. Christi and Shelley deeply understand, personally and professionally, the ongoing needs of cancer patients and the sad reality that those with financial means are better able to access quality solutions.

The More Moments More Memories Foundation removes financial obstacles and clears a path for patients with cancerĀ to seek critical treatments needed to improve the quality and quantity of their lives, which could provide more precious moments with their loved ones to create lasting memories. For them, your gift means hope, it means less stress, and it can mean more time.

Even without the added stress of a pandemic, travel to clinical trials is often an immense physical, emotional, and financial burden for people with cancer and their caregivers. We hear many stories of impossibly difficult decisions: to pay for travel to receive potentially life-saving treatment or to pay for groceries or rent. No one should have to choose between life or overwhelming financial hardship.

Your generosity is so very appreciated during these difficult times, especially for patients. Importantly, 100% of your donation will go directly to patients in need.

Request Grant Assistance
Grant applicants can request financial support for cancer patients and their caregivers to access treatment innovations, including travel to participate in clinical trials. The financial assistance supports expenses such as travel, lodging and food. Please visit to start an application.


To provide grants that help people access oncology clinical trials for potentially life-saving treatment, offering more moments and more memories with loved ones. We envision a future where people can access life-saving treatments without financial concerns and families impacted by cancer can create more moments and more memories together.

Success Story

"Clinical trials are the key to finding cures and treatment that give us the time and quality of life we so desperately want and hopefully, hope for the people who come after us on this journey. I could never find the words to express how much the grant has meant to me and my family. I'm still here, I'm still feeling strong and am thrilled to have the opportunity to take part in putting an end to cancer. Thank you for your generosity. You are lifting a tremendous burden for your grant recipients and helping us concentrate on being strong and well and ready for the next battle." - Anna, grant recipient
