The mission of the Prevent Cancer Foundation is to save lives through cancer prevention and early detection. Our vision is to Stop Cancer Before it Starts! The Prevent Cancer Foundation is the only U.S. nonprofit organization solely devoted to cancer prevention and early detection. We have invested over $134 million in research, education, advocacy and community outreach programs over the past 30 years.
While it is critical for you to actively play a role in your own cancer prevention and early detection efforts, collectively we can affect even greater change through broader advocacy efforts at local, state and national levels. The word “advocacy” can be intimidating. Most people have never set foot on Capitol Hill or in their state legislature. However, advocacy is much more than supporting legislation or being involved in politics. It encompasses a wide array of activities and efforts and we believe that advocacy can actually be fun and easy. In fact, you are probably already an advocate and you don’t even know it.
