The Prevent Cancer Foundation® is the only U.S.-based nonprofit organization solely dedicated to cancer prevention and early detection. Our mission is saving lives across all populations through cancer prevention and early detection. Our vision is to Stop Cancer Before It Starts!®

The Prevent Cancer Foundation® was founded in 1985 and carries out its mission by focusing its work in four areas:

Research: The Foundation funds important research grants and fellowships at some of the most prestigious academic institutions and medical centers across the U.S. The goal of the Prevent Cancer Foundation’s research program is to identify and fund innovative projects with the potential to make substantial contributions to cancer prevention or early detection.

Education: The Foundation is committed to providing evidence-based information about how you can prevent cancer or detect it early through healthy lifestyle choices, vaccinations and medical screenings.

Outreach: The Foundation reaches out to communities through programs and grants that allow us to fund nationally and globally and act locally. By empowering those who know their communities best, we are able to help implement lifesaving programs that benefit all populations, especially the medically underserved.

Advocacy: By engaging policymakers and grassroots supporters through advocacy, the Foundation promotes the enactment of laws, regulations and funding that prioritize cancer research and prevention and support the needs of cancer patients and their families.
