How Brian’s Cause Began

In the fall of 2006, Brian Conner, a lifelong Rush County resident, was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma cancer. As a result, it didn’t take long to exceed his insurance coverage. Upon learning this, a group of family and friends within the community converged and began raising funds to help cover medical costs that Brian could not afford after his insurance had reached the maximum amount of coverage. This group became known as “Brian’s Cause” and it was decided that this would become an ongoing effort, knowing there will be other “Brian’s” from this community who will need the same aid and support that Brian Conner was shown.

Our Goal

Our goal is to create a county-wide movement to end the financial cancer battle. The Brian’s Cause fund will help Rush County residents, who qualify through a screening process, fight their financial battle brought on by treatments costs.


You can take comfort in knowing that all of the money raised is being used to help Rush County residents. One hundred percent of your donations stay local and will be used for your family, friends, and neighbors who are battling cancer and need assistance with out-of-pocket costs associated with the high cost of cancer treatments.
