About CancerForward

CancerForward: The Foundation for Cancer Survivors is a public charity whose mission is to connect, educate and share information among cancer survivors, empowering them to improve their day-to-day lives.

CancerForward exists as a free and unique web-based networking and educational resource for cancer survivors of all ages and all types of cancers. It was created to support the physical, emotional and practical living needs of more than 28 million cancer survivors.  According to the Chronicle of Philanthropy, no other not-for-profit entity currently provides its services on a comprehensive basis.  CancerForward’s web content is focused on first-hand, participant-based experience, current information from trained experts and guides, access to local resources, and aggregation of survivor data such as polls and statistical surveys.  By design, the website embraces the now conventional definition of “survivors” and thereby serves those living with, through and beyond cancer diagnosis, along with family members, friends, and caregivers. More information about the organization can be found at

Tickets for the Key the the Cure Kickoff 2010 begin at $75.00 per person with many underwriting opportunities available.  For more information or for interview opportunities, please contact Christina Sacco, Smith & Sacco Public Relations at 713/627-8777 or
