David Tutera Stands Up to Prevent Cancer

Posted by PCF Admin on September 17th, 2010 | No Comments »

Foundation News - WE tv star and Prevent Cancer Foundation board member David Tutera is being featured in the upcoming Life & Style section of USA Today Weekend discussing the joy of giving. Tutera explained, “I try to be active in a few charities that have meaning and where I feel I can make a difference.” One of those organizations is the Prevent Cancer Foundation , which he’s been involved with for 10 years. Cancer prevention and early detection hit home for Tutera about four years ago when both his own mother and his partner’s mother were diagnosed with cancer. "My involvement with the Foundation helped me get through both of these events with a much deeper understanding," Tutera explained. Tutera continued, “It isn't just about curing cancer; it's about educating people on how to prevent cancer.” Tutera also talks about his participation in USA Weekend's Make a Difference Day 2010, where millions of Americans will be graciously giving their time to help others. As he puts it, “The need for help rarely wanes, and more than money, we need people who have the time and the desire to volunteer.” To learn more about David Tutera’s thoughts on giving, Make a Difference Day 2010 and WE tv’s WE Volunteer campaign, visit

Events - Working in the cancer field I know the stats on how many people are affected by cancer each year. How many will be diagnosed. How many will die.
