The mission of the Prevent Cancer Foundation is saving lives through cancer prevention and early detection. 

Since 1985, we have provided $134 million in support of cancer prevention research, education 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.

Voluntary donations from individuals, foundations and corporations have helped fund research grants to nearly 450 scientists at over 150 leading medical institutions across the country. Our public education programs have applied this scientific knowledge to teach the public on ways they can reduce their cancer risks.
