Budda-Box, Inc has been helping fight cancer in Marquette County since 1991. The non-profit organization helps support people, who have cancer, with financial and emotional support. Starting with a golf outing to raise money for a friend with cancer, the organization continues today. There are only two criteria set for their work. One, they assist people who have been diagnosed with cancer; and two, are residents of Marquette County.

All the money they give stays in Marquette County and helps Marquette County residents. Each year is different. The recipients receive the gifts of money according to how much Budda-Box, Inc has received and raised in fundraisers.
Budda Box, thank you so much for thinking of my Dad and sending him another check. But he had passed away on May 28, 2019. So I'm sending this back to you to use for someone else. My Dad was so thankful for the first check he received. It helped him a lot for his heating bill and he would like to see this to help others. Thank You Again
Dear Budda Box, with sincere appreciation for the check, we thank you so much. Sure will help with some expenses. He has been in hospice care since July 17. He is home now close to the end. Thanks to your organization for all you do.
Dear Friends, thank you so much for the financial support you provided my family and myself for the fight I have with cancer. It is very much appreciated. This is a challenging time for us. I am confident that we can win this battle! Thanks again for all you do for the people of Marquette County.
If you know of anyone that has cancer in Marquette County, please contact any of the directors.
