Celebrate UV Safety Month & Stay Skin Healthy

July is UV Safety Month, but you can (and should!) protect your skin from the harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays year-round. Learn more about what you can do to stay skin healthy not just in the summer months but all year long. 


A Guide to Preventing Cancer

Cancer prevention and early detection are now more important than ever. Over 1.9 million Americans will be diagnosed with cancer in the U.S. this year, and more than 600,000 will die of these diseases. However, research suggests that up to 50% of cancer cases and about 50% of cancer deaths are preventable with the knowledge we have today. Download our updated Guide to Preventing Cancer to learn what you can do to put prevention into action. 


Continuing the fight against colorectal cancer

Next week, our founder Carolyn “Bo” Aldigé will represent the Prevent Cancer Foundation at a White House meeting with Fight Colorectal Cancer (CRC) and other advocacy and industry leaders to discuss how we can work together to respond to the President’s Cancer Moonshot. Read more about this event addressing the key gaps and barriers to colorectal cancer screening identified in the President’s Cancer Panel Report


Share your story

Over two years of navigating the coronavirus pandemic and Americans’ health care routines are still being disrupted. We need everyone to prioritize getting their routine medical appointments back on the books, and your story may be what motivates others to do so! Share yours with us for the chance to be featured and be the reason someone prioritizes their health today. 


Donors making a difference

To express our gratitude to the Foundation’s donors, we hosted a special appreciation event at last month’s Prevent Cancer Dialogue. Donors joined us on Thursday, June 9th for a meet-and-greet reception with Foundation grantees while listening to discussions on the latest in cancer prevention and how their support ensures innovative approaches to early detection continue to emerge.
