The Crawford Crew

Pulling together to prevent cervical cancerSM


About cervical cancer preventionDiane Crawford survived cervical cancer in 2009 thanks to early detection and the quick work of her doctors. She founded The Crawford Crew less than three months after being diagnosed. Now cancer-free, Diane and The Crawford Crew Foundation are committed to making a difference.

Thanks to help from many volunteerss, donors and partners, The Crawford Crew has been able to stay true to their mission and make significant impacts throughout the community.


Our goal, simply, is to raise money and pour it into patient assistance, education, research, school and community outreach programs for cervical cancer, and other gynecological cancers.


Cervical Cancer Awareness FundraiserOur primary fundraiser each year is Raise A Racket for Cervical Cancer AwarenessSM. In addition, we sell handmade crystal heart pendants, appropriately known as Hearts of HopeSM. These pendants are created year-round by our volunteers. Each year various organizations graciously raise funds on our behalf. Strike Out Cancer, Zumba for a Cause, Gather to Give, Drive Against Cancer, and The Pointless Pursuit are a few examples of the events that have raised money for The Crawford Crew. If you would like to host an event and have the proceeds benefit cervical cancer awareness we would love to partner with you. No event is too big or too small!

We are proud to partner with many groups that share our vision. Some of these organizations are (but not limited to): Appalachia Community Cancer Network, Hope Hollow, The James – The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, Mount Carmel Nursing Program, and Otterbein University Health & Sport Science Department. If your organization would like to partner with us we’d like to hear from you!
