Cancer Websites, Organizations — By on November 16, 2008 at 7:18 am

The mission of the Prevent Cancer Foundation is cancer prevention and early detection through research, education and community outreach to all populations, including children and the underserved.

The Prevent Cancer Foundation envisions a future where cancer incidence and mortality will be significantly reduced through preventive measures.

The Prevent Cancer Foundation (formerly the Cancer Research and Prevention Foundation) has carried out their mission in three main ways:

•By funding research that helps them to understand how to prevent cancer;
•By educating the public about how to prevent cancer; and
•By reaching out to communities across the country through our resources, events and partnerships with other organizations.

Over the years, they have provided more than $106 million in support of cancer prevention research, education and outreach programs nationwide and has played a pivotal role in developing a body of knowledge that is the basis for important prevention and early detection strategies.

They have funded 300 scientists at over 150 leading medical institutions across the country. Their public education programs have applied this scientific knowledge to teach the public on ways they can reduce their cancer risks.

Carolyn R. Aldigé is President and Founder of the Prevent Cancer Foundation, a national non-profit organization she founded in 1985 in memory of her father, Edward P. Richardson, who died of cancer one year earlier.
