Cancer Schmancer’s mission is to shift the nation's focus from just searching for a cure to prevention and early detection of cancer in order to save lives. The Cancer Schmancer Movement is a three-prong organization dedicated to:
Early Detection Stage 1 is the Cure! We educate & transform patients into medical consumers. Our Fran Van program offers low income, un-insured & under-insured women free mammograms. Catch it on arrival 90% survival!
Prevention Did you know that 90% of cancer is related to the environment? That gives you enormous control over your risk. In 2012, our Detox Your Home initiative helped over 20,000 people eliminate harmful toxins IN their food, the cosmetics ON their skin, and cleaners AROUND their homes. Make Detox Your Home your new mantra. This year, we’re reaching out to the young generation around the world with our Detox Your Home school assembly program, and Fran continues her series of speaking engagements at universities and corporations.
Policy Change They say all roads lead to Rome, and in today’s world, Rome is Capitol Hill. We are working on the Carcinogen-FREE Label ACT, a bi-partisan bill introduced in 2012 so that consumers can make healthier choices and through purchasing power, dictate trends that influence the formulas of household products and food. We were instrumental in passing 2007's Gynecologic Cancer Education & Awareness Act -- by unanimous consent -- the first of its kind in US history! No wonder Fran was named one of the Top 5 Celebrity Lobbyists by Washingtonian Magazine.
