Stop Cancer Before It Starts! Your Dollars Make it Happen.

Your workplace giving donation gives us the opportunity to share important information about how to Stop Cancer Before It Starts!® with new audiences.  You also provide a steady, predictable stream of funding that can help us better budget and plan for the future, including the ability to weather economic downturns.  Knowing your donation will still be coming in next year allows us to build vital new programs in our community that will help ensure cancer prevention and early detection education is available to all populations.

In 2019, more than 1.7 million Americans will be diagnosed with cancer and 606,880 are expected to die. It is hard to find someone who has not been impacted by cancer.  This devastating disease effects loved ones, co-workers and whole communities.  Research shows that up to 50%of cancer cases and about 50% of cancer deaths are preventable with the knowledge we have today.

The Prevent Cancer Foundation® works to reduce the cancer mortality rate by focusing on research, education, outreach, and advocacy for cancer prevention, and for early detection when cancers are most treatable.  Our mission is saving lives across all populations through cancer prevention and early detection.  Over the years the Foundation has helped develop a body of knowledge that has led to new vaccines, the understanding of food’s impact on health, new and improved screening options and successful awareness and screening programs. The Foundation continues to educate all populations on reducing their cancer risk.

You have the power to save lives and change the future by supporting the Prevent Cancer Foundation® through workplace giving.  Each dollar you donate helps us to Stop Cancer Before It Starts!®

For example:

  • $2 can provide one copy of Stop Cancer Before It Starts!® A Guide to Preventing Cancer (available in five languages) 
  • $25 can provide a skin cancer screening
  • $35 can cover one Breast Health Education for Young Women Facilitator’s Guide to provide sessions encouraging young women to advocate for their health (in English or Spanish)
  • $75 can cover one hepatitis B screening test for an at-risk individual
  • $150 can cover one breast cancer screening

You can make the difference in the future of cancer prevention and early detection.
