Our Story

The Charge Up Campaign is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization based in Atlanta, Georgia, that focuses on improving the quality of life of men, women, and youth affected by cancer, including caregivers who courageously take the stand to advocate, support, and care for their loved ones.

Inspired through her journey as a caregiver for her mother diagnosed with Breast Cancer, Charessa Sawyer founded the Charge Up Campaign in 2013 to provide a community resource that combats the economic, health, and social challenges of caregivers, warriors, and survivors of cancer.

Today, we continue to take the charge to celebrate the lives of those beyond the test and title of ‘patient’. Through our programming, initiatives, and events, we’re able to provide our community with the assistance they need to stay empowered and Charged Up!
