Canz4Cancer Inc. is a 501(c)3 tax-exempt organization whose mission is to increase cancer awareness in urban communities amongst youth and their families through community outreach, education, support services, and environmentally friendly events that emphasize the importance of early detection, prevention, healthy lifestyle management, research, and physical activity. Canz4Cancer Inc. is dedicated to educating as many families as possible about various prevention methods that can reduce the risk of being diagnosed as well as providing support for families that are or have been affected by cancer. Canz4Cancer has interest in implementing a unique service learning program for K-12 Students who attend Public Elementary/High Schools. Some of our goals include: increasing cancer awareness, prevention, nutrition, providing resources, promoting physical activity, and recycling. We will also provide support services to youth battling cancer whether directly or indirectly.
The Founding Director of Canz4Cancer Inc., Lloyd Willson created this concept after cancer affected his own family. Mr. Willson is very passionate about spreading awareness and creating events that will get the attention of urban youth and adults in order to educate them about cancer. Canz4Cancer Inc. is an innovative way to put cancer awareness in urban communities, in order to reach demographics that are being overwhelmingly affected by various types of cancer. We will implement a program that will work with youth battling cancer as well as their families, to provide resources and support services for families that require the assistance. Our organization will promote the importance of recycling and keeping our environment cleaner. Canz4Cancer Inc. is designed to utilize fundraisers, social events, and community development that evolve around physical activity. We will also allow those that are or have been affected by cancer a chance to fellowship in a fun and safe environment. We are dedicated to spread awareness throughout the nation and bring together communities all over the nation.
