Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Cancer

Mission: The “Voices of Survivors Foundation” is devoted to exploring ‘Survivorship’ and what that means to the individual ‘Survivor’, whether they are recently diagnosed, undergoing treatment or post-treatment, in a variety of documentary formats. We work with other individuals and organizations collaboratively on a variety of projects to further this exploration. The face of cancer is one that the has been portrayed as that of only older people and children for so long but that face is not reflective of whom cancer truly affects. Cancer affects us all and each person who deals with this has their own definition of what being a ‘Survivor’ means. The “Voices of Survivors Foundation” is a federally registered 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization. All donations are tax deductible.

Results: We have grown to over 200k site visits per month on the website. ‘Survivors’ from all over the world including, Africa, Australia, India, the United Kingdom, Canada, Mexico and many other places have shared their ‘voice’ with the “Voices of Survivors Foundation”. We are a member of the LiveStrong Global Cancer Summit and the LiveStrong Young Adult Alliance.

I only have great things to say about the Voices of Survivors Foundation and its Founder, Lynn Lane. Although still in its infancy, it's an excellent organization that is already making waves. I have found that the organization is transparent, accessible and always looking for new ways to share the voices of cancer survivors across the world. Utilizing technology, Voices of Survivors Foundation gives survivors and co-survivors a chance to share their unique survivorship perspectives, offering hope to thousands others. Recently I have been working with Voices of Survivors Foundation to benefit nursing education, as nurses and other healthcare professionals retain education better once it has a "face" and a "story" and is no longer an obscure concept embedded in a lecture or paper.

This foundation is truly an inspiration. Survivors of every size, shape and color share their life experiences and lessons learned in their own words. This is not the same old superficial list of side effects of cancer treatment. What this is, is a way to touch and be touched by real people and their amazing journeys, lessons learned, and advice. Not only do I find the stories inspirational and helpful but I have also made some great friends through this foundation. If you are a survivor, the family, or a friend of someone dealing with any stage of cancer treatment or survival there is no better place to learn and be inspired by real people about the needs, wants and strength that makes people "Survivors".
