Target demographics: Women

Geographic areas served: National

Programs: EARLY DETECTION FRAN VAN PROGRAM - Cancer Schmancer has discovered that there are many existing cancer-screening services for low-income individuals, the uninsured and underinsured; however, many of them are struggling to reach the people they have committed to serve, particularly women, because they just don’t have the capacity to get the message out. This is where Cancer Schmancer can have the greatest impact. Because of our belief in collaboration to achieve a higher goal, we have built a model to partner with local, existing cancer screening services for women in need in order to reach and build capacity. (These partners are screening equipment transport vans, mobile cancer screening vans, or local clinics/hospitals, depending on the greatest need of each community.)

As part of our capacity building, the Early Detection Fran Van program provides training to outreach volunteers who will help educate the communities and help women make and keep their screening appointments. This year, we are in the process of development and piloting this program in three cities, with an ultimate goal of development in cities across the US and eventually abroad.

WE THE FUTURE - mobilizes the youth of this country to engage in community education and fundraising initiatives in order to support Cancer Schmancer’s programs and share the life-saving message of early detection and living healthily. www.CancerSchmancer.org/wethefuture

The Cancer Schmancer Movement is dedicated to saving women's lives through early detection of cancer. We are:
• transforming women from patients into informed medical consumers
• educating women on the importance and methods of early detection
• shifting this nation’s priority from just looking for a cure, to prevention and early detection.
