How are you going to make the new year a healthy one?

With the new year approaching, it’s crucial you schedule your postponed or missed appointments and routine cancer screenings. While you’re at it, remind a friend to make their appointments, too! Early detection saves lives and if we all get our appointments back on the books, we’ll be one step closer to stopping cancer before it starts.



Thanks to you, the Prevent Cancer Gala was record-breaking!

Because of you, we raised more than $2 million at our 27th annual Gala! Proceeds from the Gala will support Foundation programs, including research grants and fellowships and community outreach grants. Funds will also support public education campaigns, such as the Foundation’s “Back on the Books” campaign to remind people to reschedule their postponed or cancelled routine cancer screenings.
