Overview

Stop Cancer Before it Starts!®

Since 1985, the Prevent Cancer Foundation®, a 501(c)3 nonprofit, has invested nearly $142 million in support of cancer prevention research, education, advocacy and outreach programs nationwide and have played a pivotal role in developing a body of knowledge that is the basis for important prevention and early detection strategies. The Foundation is the only U.S. nonprofit organization solely devoted to cancer prevention and early detection. We have funded nearly 450 scientists at over 150 leading medical institutions across the country. Our public education programs have applied this scientific knowledge to inform the public about ways they can reduce their cancer risks.

We believe in:

  • Reducing the cancer mortality rate by focusing individual behaviors, public policy and discussion, and research on prevention and early detection
  • Addressing all preventable cancers across all populations
  • Making prevention knowledge and early detection services more accessible for people in medically underserved communities
  • Collaborating with partners to maximize the effectiveness and reach of the prevention and early detection programs and message
  • Creating an energizing and productive workplace that people want to join
