Fuck Cancer is a 501 (c) 3 nonprofit in the United States and a registered Canadian charity dedicated to prevention, early detection and providing emotional support and guidance to those affected by cancer. We run digital and on-the-ground programs and events that seek to change the way people think and talk about cancer, ultimately improving health outcomes.
Fuck Cancer believes that people diagnosed with cancer, their families and support network should have equitable access to early detection, prevention and psychosocial support.
Who is our community?
Our community is defined by their shared behavior and experiences, not a birthdate. They have incredible technology at their disposal, and they use it to share information, give support, and help each other through some of their best and worst days.
As a community, we stand against the systemic racism that black and brown communities face every day. Cancer does not discriminate, but our health system does. The reality is Black people are dying from many cancers at higher rates than the rest of the population. While we have worked to address health disparities, we will continue to work harder to address systemic racism in healthcare and to prioritize anti-racism as an organization.
