Leadership & Staff
Since 1985 The Prevent Cancer Foundation has provided more than $125 million in support of its mission: saving lives through cancer prevention and early detection, and has become nationally recognized as a leader in the fight against cancer through prevention. The Foundation’s Board of Directors, Medical Advisory Board, Scientific Review Panel and staff each play a pivotal role in advancing the organization’s mission.
President and Founder
Carolyn R. (“Bo”) Aldigé founded the Prevent Cancer Foundation in 1985 in memory of her father, Edward P. Richardson, who died of cancer one year earlier.
Board of Directors
The Prevent Cancer Foundation’s Board of Directors is composed of leaders in medicine, science, business, fundraising, and entertainment. Their expertise helps the Foundation continue its mission to advocate and support the prevention and early detection of cancer through research, education and community outreach to all populations, including children and the underserved.
Medical Advisory Board
We are proud to have the advice and guidance of 53 members — all of whom are leaders in the field of cancer prevention or early detection in the United States — to continually update and review the information we use to educate the public.
Scientific Review Panel
The Foundation, under the guidance of the Scientific Review Panel, awards research grants and fellowships to promising early-career scientists with novel hypotheses for prevention and early detection.
The Prevent Cancer leadership team and supporting staff are the people who work each day to carry out the Foundation’s mission to support the prevention and early detection of cancer.
