ABOUT CRUSH CANCER NAPA VALLEY
HELPING OUR LOCAL COMMUNITY
The mission of Crush Cancer Napa Valley is to assist local cancer fighters during treatment. With the diagnosis of cancer, life changes and unanticipated costs arise. By providing funds for life’s basic necessities, groceries, utilities, childcare and transportation, we hope to ease the burden for patients and their caregivers and allow them to focus their energy on the fight.
This 9th annual event features an expanded two-day format. Our silent auction will be held Saturday, August 10th, at Vintner’s Golf Club & Lakeside Grill in Yountville. Passed hors d’oeuvres, wine and bubbles will be served against the backdrop of Vintners’ stunning lake and golf course, followed by *dinner and live auction of a few select lots.
On Sunday, August 11th, we’ll rise, shine and gather at Yountville Community Plaza for our annual 5K Walk/Run. For those who prefer to donate or support a participating individual or group, this can be accomplished by completing the registration process.

MEET OUR FOUNDER
Rayellen Jordon is a lifelong resident of Napa Valley. Early in her working career, a training opportunity at Queen of the Valley Hospital allowed her to became a tumor registrar, documenting the clinical journey of all new cancer patients, from onset of symptoms through diagnosis and staging, treatment, annual follow-up, and then reported all statistics to the American College of Surgeons for national reporting. Later, she worked as billing manager of a large chemo-oncology clinic in San Francisco, witnessing the “other side” of cancer, where vulnerable patients undergoing toxic treatment were struggling to maintain home, work and family life. Those patients needed help.
In 2010, Rayellen and her family founded Sisters Crush Breast Cancer through the family-owned business, Sisters Boutique in Yountville, CA. This grassroots effort brought community and businesses together annually to raise funds for breast cancer fighters. After seven successful years, the goal of helping all cancer patients was realized by founding a non-profit and transitioning to Crush Cancer Napa Valley.
