Prevent Cancer Foundation
The mission of the Prevent Cancer FoundationÂ® is saving lives across all populations through cancer prevention and early detection. Our vision is to Stop Cancer Before It Starts!Â® When the Prevent Cancer FoundationÂ® was founded in 1985, the concept of cancer prevention and early detection was not widely embraced by the medical community or the general public. Today, it is at the forefront of reducing cancer incidence and death. The Prevent Cancer FoundationÂ® extends its mission in four key areas: â€¢ Funding research that helps increase insight into the disease to allow us to understand how to prevent cancer or detect it early when it can be more successfully treated; â€¢ Educating people about how they can prevent cancer and detect it early through healthy lifestyle choices, vaccinations and medical screenings; â€¢ Reaching out to communities through programs that allow us to fund nationally and globally and act locally. By empowering those who know their communities best, we are able to help implement life-saving programs that benefit all populations, especially the medically underserved; â€¢ Engaging legislators and regulators through education and advocacy to promote the enactment of laws and regulations that support cancer research and prevention.
