Launching a non-profit organization a Costs Online presence with cancer innovations and updates Resources
LOS ANGELES, July 15, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — F Cancer, the 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, today launched its new website with a new look, user-friendly interface, easy-to-navigate resources, new screening tools and more, while continuing its dedicated mission to advance health equity through early detection and prevention programs, and providing resources for patients and caregivers to navigate, manage and cope with cancer.
Co-founders Yael Cohen Braun and Julie Greenbaum launched F Cancer in 2010 to honor their mothers. F Cancer focuses on patients, caregivers, loved ones and supporters who span multiple generations around the world. The community is not bound by demographics, but by a common diagnosis and the shared challenges and experiences that come with it. What started as a t-shirt and local events turned into a Facebook group, which grew into a movement and then an organization.
Why “F**k?” Because that’s what everyone thinks during this head in hands moment. It is neither sexual nor violent. He is defeated and defiant. “F**k” is a visceral response to a life-altering illness. Taking that private word and making it public is powerful because with cancer, if there was ever a time to say “F**k,” it’s now.
Billions of dollars have been spent to cure cancer, while funding for prevention, early detection and psychosocial support has been largely neglected. F Cancer aims to fill the gaps of other organizations and give people the tools and resources they need to end late-stage cancer diagnoses and navigate the cancer journey.
With this new website, F Cancer debuts an updated look and feel with a completely revamped website that includes an array of innovative features and resources. When you’re diagnosed with cancer or caring for a loved one with cancer, it’s not just your body that’s affected, but your heart, mind, and relationships as well. The new tools that F Cancer is implementing will help patients and caregivers navigate the confusing thoughts, emotions and questions that accompany diagnosis, life with cancer or life after cancer.
- Guides: Whether you’re a newly diagnosed patient or caregiver looking for advice on how to support and communicate with your loved one, whether you’re looking to prevent or detect cancer at an early stage, or a employer who doesn’t know how and when to support your employee – there’s a F Cancer Guide to all that. With this easy-to-navigate new feature, anyone can take the guesswork out of Cancer and get the answers they need on-demand.
- Patient & Resources for Caregivers: F Cancer has launched a simplified approach for patients and caregivers to find the tangible information, tools and resources they need, but may not know they need. From questions for your doctor, to checklists for your caregiver, to tools to help you cope at any time, to finding a support group or a cancer navigator, F Cancer has made it easy to process.
Existing and well-known F Cancer programs, such as F Cancer CareLine and Personal Ink (P.INK), received new, convenient and accessible landing pages on the new site, along with the rest of the successful ongoing programming of the charity, including community health clinics, food security and education campaigns.

- PREVENTION – More than 40% of cancers could be prevented if we are willing to change our behaviors (think about using sunscreen, not smoking and getting vaccinated against HPV). We’re not here to tell you how to live your life, we’re here to teach you the things that affect your cancer risk. There are a lot of things we can’t control when it comes to cancer, so you need to know how to stack the cards in your favor.
- EARLY DETECTION – We know it’s shocking when you first hear it: most cancers are curable if caught at stage one. We teach people how to look for cancer instead of just finding it. Moving cancer from something we wait to have and pray for a cure, to something we actively discover when it’s most curable. Early detection is the closest thing we have to a cure.
- PRACTICAL AND EMOTIONAL SUPPORT – Coping with cancer is confusing and difficult. But it’s not just our bodies that are affected by cancer, it’s our whole world – our hearts, minds, relationships and lifestyles. Whether you are a patient, caregiver, family member or friend, cancer affects you. We’re here to help you navigate the Cancer journey because the last thing anyone needs right now is a fridge full of pots and pans and another “Let me know how I can help you” text.
