About Us

How We Differ from Other Cancer Foundations

Hello and Welcome to our website. Our foundation differs from others because we focus on:

  • A holistic approach;
  • Multiple aspects of education, research, patient care and politics;
  • Multiple cancer types.

A holistic approach consists of combining physical, mental and spiritual modalities as well as considering the environment, relationships and politics because all of these elements influence health and wellness (cancer and recovery) and may need to be assessed and included in any treatment plan.
