About us

Who we are

Cancer Shakti Foundation has a global mission to be a non-profit volunteer and donation based organization dedicated to raising cancer awareness and supporting cancer patients and their families with an emphasis on people of color. We will do this through organized fund raising that will be allocated to not-for-profit organizations that are responsibly run and align with our mission.

Our Mission

The organization’ focus is in three main areas:

Cancer Awareness and Prevention

According to World Cancer Report, there is a high incidence rate of cancer throughout the world and it may reach about 20 million by 2030 (WHO, 2008). The control of cancer is best brought about through a combination of cancer prevention and treatment. Population awareness of the cancer problem, seeing it as a priority and voicing achievable goals are all necessary elements of a successful cancer-control campaign (Brawley et al). We hope to educate the underserved community via educational podcasts and events that educate on cancer and the importance of prevention and regular screening.  

Support Cancer Patients and their families with emphasis on people of color

Our volunteers are dedicated to raising funds to support all cancer patients – with an emphasis on those underserved populations, including people of color.  Through organized fund raising events, we c come together to honor cancer survivors, raise awareness and bring hope to cancer patients and their families.  

Support Cancer Research

Supporting cancer research is one of the most effective ways  to fight cancer and to make a significant impact in the lives of patients and their families. The more researchers discover about cancer detection, prevention, and treatment, the closer the world gets to a cure. The goal  of our foundation is to enhance research by providing funds to cancer institutions to support their efforts in discovery of new treatments.  Our fund raising occurs through individual donations and fund raising events throughout the year.
