Global Focus on Cancer

Joined in August 2012

About Us

Global Focus on Cancer's (GFC) mission is to create and implement cancer awareness campaigns and cancer support groups in the US and foreign countries where access to information about cancer is critically lacking. Our goal is to make cancer education accessible to the general population. Awareness is an integral component in the early detection of the disease and early detection is a key element in fighting the battle against cancer. We work to achieve this through the following initiatives:

1.Partnering with local health organizations and networking them with established global cancer resources.

2.Translating existing cancer awareness materials and creating new brochures/pamphlets in the local language targeting cancer awareness, early detection and treatment options.

3.Utilizing relationships with doctors, hospitals, cancer organizations and US companies with international offices, to create and distribute country specific literature and to host cancer awareness seminars.

4. Assist in creating new, and expanding upon existing cancer support groups using established, successful support groups as models and adapting them to fit the individual country.
