Rein In Cancer Celebrates a Year of Generosity

Cancer is not something to celebrate. It is a debilitating, destructive disease that not only affects the person afflicted with it, but all of their loved ones as well. That’s why Rein In Cancer was started and why there is reason to celebrate after all. For dozens of people affected by cancer in 2017, contributions from Rein In Cancer were the final thread of hope that they needed to beat the disease.

Those contributions were raised thanks to the generosity of people participating in many successful events: the Frisbee Tosses at the AQHA World Show and National Reining Breeders Classic, Betting On A Cure at Remington Park, the Dog Race and Costume Contest at Southwest Reining Horse Association Futurity, and the Silent Auction hosted by Tulsa Reining Classic. The generosity of the entities that hosted such events is also greatly appreciated.

Cheryl Magoteaux-Cody, one of the founders of the organization has this to say, “Because of the financial effect that cancer can have on a person and their family, sometimes the funds from Rein In Cancer can make the difference when it comes down to buying hay for the horses, or even getting the gas to go to chemo treatments. Our contributions have even bought supplements to help people tolerate cancer treatments. Insurance doesn’t cover those things.”

Rein In Cancer makes payments directly to the people battling cancer to be used where ever it is needed in their struggle. The organization also continues to support the Shirley Bowman Nutrition Center which it raised the funds to create in 2007 through the efforts of co-founders, Shorty Koger, Tracie Anderson and Cheryl Magoteaux-Cody. The Shirley Bowman Nutrition Center is at the Charles and Peggy Stephenson Cancer Center in Oklahoma City.

Rein in Cancer is a 501c3 Non Profit Corporation that, to-date, has raised over a million dollars. The organization has no employees – only volunteers - and over 98% of donated funds have gone directly to helping cancer patients.

About

Rein In Cancer Continues Direct Aid to Horse Industry Cancer Patients

In January of 2012, Rein In Cancer, the Oklahoma-based 501-C3 Corporation, began providing direct financial assistance to cancer patients who are part of the performance horse community. It was a new direction for the organization, which had previously raised the funding to create the Shirley Bowman Nutrition Center at the Charles and Peggy Stephenson Cancer Center in Oklahoma City through the efforts of co-founders, Shorty Koger, Tracie Anderson and Cheryl (Magoteaux) Cody.

Although the organization continues to provide operating support for the Nutrition Center, its new focus became direct payment to patients being treated for cancer. The response has been overwhelming. In a year, Rein In Cancer has funded 80 patients in 32 states and Canada. All recipients have been members of the American Quarter Horse Association, the National Reining Horse Association, the National Reined Cow Horse Association or the National Cutting Horse Association.

Funds have been raised 100% through activities supported or hosted by equine industry events. Included in the long list of horse-related activities where Rein In Cancer funds have been raised are Remington Park Betting on a Cure, the National Reined Cow Horse Association Snaffle Bit Futurity, the National Reining Horse Association Futurity, the All American Quarter Horse Congress, the National Reining Breeders Classic, the March to the Arch, the Arizona Sun Circuit and the American Quarter Horse Association World Championship Show.

Added to that list are countless cuttings, ropings, barrel races, and other horse shows from a variety of disciplines. Tracie Anderson noted, “In 2013, Rein In Cancer will continue to raise funds for this patient assistance. The need is real – especially for people going through treatment who still have to buy horse feed!”

Cheryl (Magoteaux) Cody added, “When a family goes from two incomes to one or when one income is reduced and the expenses of treatment are so high, a little boost can sometimes make all the difference. It is because we hear from recipients who tell us how much the payments help, that we are so appreciative of the people in the horse industry who have contributed.”

To date, Rein In Cancer has raised over a million dollars. The organization has no employees – only volunteers - and over 97% of that total has gone directly to the advertised causes.
