Fuck Cancer is a 501 (c)3 nonprofit and registered Canadian charity focusing on prevention (Prevent), early detection (Detect) and, supporting those affected by cancer (Unite). With wit, edge and humor, we are improving health outcomes through health education, community programs, and events.
F Cancer’s NOT US campaign is decreasing HPV-associated cancers by promoting the human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine and adherence to screening protocols. HPV is the most common sexually transmitted illness in the US and can cause cancer. Approximately 25,000 women a year in the US are diagnosed with an HPV associated cancer and approximately 500,000 are diagnosed with genital warts. These are all preventable!
Together we have the chance to make one of the biggest marks in history by eliminating certain types of cancer and genital warts for subsequent generations by saying NOT US. NOT NOW. NOT EVER. For this campaign to make it’s mark in history we are in need of heroes, individuals like you, who want to save lives, starting with their own. We need heroes to help put an end to these preventable cancers by galvanizing youth through education, and encouraging everyone you know to get screened and vaccinated.
We currently offer vaccination, screening and health advocate programs in clinics and high schools in Los Angeles but are looking to expand nationally based on their success. The more donations we receive, the more women we can protect against cancer and genital warts.
The following is an approximate accounting of where your money will go;
- $10 – Educational Materials for 4 families
- $30 – Stipend for a student health advocate
- $50 – Staff and student training at one high school
- $75 – Staff Training at one clinic
- $100 – One Pap smear
- $150 – One HPV vaccination
- $5000- Involvement of one new clinic to provide up to 50 pap smears or 36 vaccinations
Not only will you be saving lives with your donation but we also have awesome incentives for raising money!
- $500- 2 t-shirts,and sticker packs
- $750 - 2 t-shirts + an iPhone case
- $1000 - 2 t-shirts + an Alison & Ivy FCancer solid gold or silver necklace
- $1500 - 2 free tickets to our next FCE party, VIP tickets if they are offered at that party.
And for those with great ambition;
$15,000- 2 VIP Tickets to a FCancer event of your choice including airfare for two within US or Canada, hotel for two nights and a very large shout out on social media.
At Fuck Cancer, we know HPV vaccination and screening provide us with one of the most profound opportunities in cancer prevention. Decreasing HPV cancers for the next generation can truly save millions of lives. Together, let’s say… Not us. Not now. Not ever.
