Why this is important to me!
I am running Falmouth and fundraising for DetecTogether because I believe in their mission. DetecTogether is working to increase cancer survival rates through early detection.
DetecTogether teaches people how to detect cancer early and to advocate for themselves as patients. 40% of American adults will face a cancer diagnosis and you can be 10x more likely to survive if it is detected early vs. late.
I was surprised to learn that there are 100 types of cancer and screenings for only 6 types. For the rest, knowing what to watch for is really important. Any funds raised help DetecTogether provide FREE programs in high schools, colleges, and for people at high risk for cancer, like firefighters.
Thanks for considering supporting me.
DetecTogether teaches people how to recognize cancer symptoms and work with doctors to accelerate the time to diagnosis. Forty percent of us will be diagnosed with cancer. In many cases you are 10 times more likely to survive when diagnosed early vs. late.
Our Strategy: 3 Steps Detect
3 Steps Detect is simple and effective. There are more than 100 types of cancer and CDC-recommended screenings for only four types. We sorted through the complexity of identifying cancer symptoms and developed this easy-to-follow roadmap for early cancer detection.
We believe that ALL people need this life-saving information. DetecTogether delivers its 3 Steps Detect training to high schools, colleges, community groups, organizations and workplaces throughout New England and beyond. Our offerings also include a tailored education for first responders who have an elevated risk of developing cancer because of their exposures at work
