Cancer Gets LOST

About Cancer Gets LOST

Co-founded by Jo Garfein and Jared Wong, Cancer Gets Lost is a 501c3-sponsored organization that raises money for various cancer charities via online and live auctions of rare & autographed pop culture memorabilia. We focus on channeling all fandoms toward the greater good!

CGL has non-profit, tax exempt status thanks to a fiscal sponsorship by FJC: A Foundation of Philanthropic Funds. FJC is a public charity that provides management of charitable giving, and they oversee all of the financials for Cancer Gets Lost (including management of the CGL PayPal account). FJC has earned a top 4-star rating on Charity Navigator!

Since our first online charity auction in 2012, Cancer Gets Lost has raised and donated over $200,000 to many respected cancer charities, including Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation for Childhood Cancer, the American Cancer Society, the National Brain Tumor Society and the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network.

For this, our 2018 Cancer Gets Lost Online Charity Auction, CGL will be donating 100% of the net proceeds (every cent, after paying auction hosting & shipping vendors) to the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network ( We chose PanCAN in honor of Jo’s mother-in-law, who passed away in 2017 after bravely battling pancreatic cancer for many years.
