About Us

In 2004 Green Bay Preble High School faculty member Nick Nesvacil and a small group of students and staff started a group to raise cancer awareness and help families affected by cancer. Since then the group has grown much larger. Today the group is over 200 students growing!

Our Creed

We believe in life – your life and the lives of family and friends.
We believe in living every minute with a heartfelt passion and an intense commitment to it.
We believe in putting intense energy into life, channeled with a fierce aggression.
We believe in focus: staying strong in mind and soul.
Knowledge is power: commitment to the cause breeds success; attitude strengthens our lives.
This is the Sting Cancer Awareness team.
We can be there whenever you need us.
Hopefully we can lessen the tears and help the anger subside.
If we can brighten your day, then we have done our job.
We believe in providing care and compassion, not pity.
We know this is not time to pull any punches.
You are in the fight for your life, and we want to help.
We are about the fight against cancer.
