Casting For a Cure

Dave Mercer's Casting for a Cure is a non-profit initiative, fully endorsed by the Canadian Cancer Society.

Casting for a Cure was founded in 2005 in honor of Dave's mother, Ann Mercer, who, like too many Canadians, lost her battle with cancer. It is our commitment to raise funds through the angling community to help in the fight to end cancer.
