Why We Care

It’s a fact: cancer screenings can save lives. But, not everyone gets screened.

Some people are held back by fear or pride or are limited because of costs or access or maybe because they simply don’t know why, when, or how to get screened. The thing is, cancer happens despite what we feel or think, or even what we face in our lives.

Cancer doesn’t care. We do.

Through this campaign, we’re connecting people with local resources to help them overcome barriers. So more people can and do get potentially lifesaving cancer screenings.
