There isn’t a person in our country who is not affected by cancer. Most of us either have experienced cancer ourselves or have a friend or loved one who has. Perhaps someone you love is going through it right now.
We are happy to have partnered with the LiveStrong Foundation. This great nonprofit organization has made it their mission to fight for anyone affected by cancer and help improve their lives.
Established in 1997, LiveStrong was created on the principle that there is strength in unity. They believe that attitude is everything and knowledge is power. They have served over 2.5 million people through one-on-one free cancer support services. LiveStrong continues to make a difference in millions of lives.
How Do They Do This?
LiveStrong improves lives by their direct services, connecting people and communities with what they need, and by calling on legislative leaders to help fight cancer.
Offering free personalized support straight to the patient, survivor, caregiver and loved one is what Direct Services is all about. This includes Living After Cancer Treatment brochures, Cancer Survivors Guidebook, Fertility Program and answers to concerns through their Navigation program.
Cancer survivors have several day-to-day concerns that must addressed. LiveStrong has partnered with programs to help like the YMCA and LiveStrong at School. These program help with the age-appropriate support needed.
Changing the way that the world fights cancer can make a global impact. LiveStrong has teamed up with policymakers and institutions to help educate and make longer-term changes. The LiveStrong surveys provide information from caregivers, loved ones and survivors that help shape policy. The LiveStrong Cancer Institutes create a direct impact on reinventing the way that cancer survivors and patients are given support and cared for.
The foundation of their work is the fact that they listen. LiveStrong listens to cancer survivors, healthcare providers, caregivers and researchers on how they can better serve those affected by cancer. They provide a comprehensive Research Library which helps continually improve the support and services offered.
Your LiveStrong donations is a great way to show your support for cancer survivors and all those affected by cancer.
