February is Cancer Prevention Month

A substantial proportion of cancers could be prevented, including all cancers caused by tobacco use and other unhealthy behaviors. Excluding non-melanoma skin cancer, at least 42% of newly diagnosed cancers in the US – about 805,600 cases in 2022 – are potentially avoidable, including the 19% of cancers caused by smoking and at least 18% caused by a combination of excess body weight, alcohol consumption, poor nutrition, and physical inactivity. 

You can make a significant difference in helping prevent cancer by donating through workplace giving to the charities listed below. Don’t have a program? Click here to have your employer contact our team about bring employee giving to your workplace.

  • Working to advance research to prevent cancer
