Welcome to Friends & Cancer!
We are a national cancer education outreach program dedicated to improving the lives of those with cancer through the education and empowerment of friends, colleagues and local communities.
Many Americans feel ill-prepared to step forward to help when a friend faces cancer. Friends & Cancer prepares individuals and communities to respond appropriately and effectively to those with cancer.
The “Friend-to-Friend Cancer Campaign” is raising $50,000 to provide both free community cancer education workshops and up to 2500 copies of the new 225 page text, When Cancer Strikes a Friend: What to Say, What to Do, and How to Help. This important book written by over three dozen cancer professionals will be donated to libraries, physicians’ offices, cancer centers, schools, churches, mosques and synagogues nationwide.
WITH YOUR HELP, WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN THE LIVES OF THOSE EXPERIENCING CANCER, FRIEND-TO-FRIEND.
