Mission

This World Cancer Day, we are helping to put the original C Word—Cancer—back in the spotlight. The pandemic has impacted progress and exacerbated existing disparities in cancer care. Now is the time for the world to come together to close the gap and to create a better normal of cancer care, not just a new normal.

So register now for the  5K to kick Cancer's butt
