Proceeds benefit the American Indian Cancer Foundation's mission to eliminate cancer burdens on Native people through improved access to cancer prevention and care.
Greetings! I came to work at the American Indian Cancer Foundation in September 2017 as an Evaluation Coordinator. I chose to work with American Indian and Alaska Native populations because of the wisdom and strong sense of community that resounds in Indian Country. This is a quality of life I admire and wish to see in every community across the nation. Now as a Senior Program Specialist, I hope to promote cancer awareness and increase early detection in communities and clinics through culturally-specific best practices. American Indian and Alaska native communities hold the inherit knowledge and wisdom, and it is the American Indian Cancer Foundation’s passion to highlight those solutions.
Distancing for Life, Love & Hope:
Powwow for Hope is a nationwide fundraiser for the American Indian Cancer Foundation (AICAF) that honors loved ones who have faced or are facing cancer by creating a space for healing. Proceeds benefit the American Indian Cancer Foundation’s work to eliminate cancer burdens on Native families across the nation. This year, we are pivoting to a virtual fundraiser taking place from Wednesday, July 1 to Monday, September 7, 2020.
Cancer kills more Native people than any other disease. Donations from this event help AICAF further its work to eliminate cancer burdens on Indigenous communities throughout the country through improved access to prevention, early detection, treatment, and survivor support.
Join us in this fight against cancer by starting a Fundraising Team! Because this event happens digitally, you can participate from anywhere in the nation by donating or starting a fundraising page.
Proceeds from past events have allowed us to create and deliver culturally-relevant cancer prevention resources to more Tribal and urban communities, connect Indigenous cancer survivors and caregivers to healing and supportive services, and partner with more Tribes so we can change the outcome of cancer in our communities.
Let's do more! We cannot make this happen without you! Last year Fundraising Teams were successful in raising $57,000 that helped support:
This year we have an ambitious goal to raise $100,000, but we cannot do it without the support of our Fundraising Teams! Join us in our mission to improve health outcomes for Native families everywhere by getting involved in the 9th Annual Powwow for Hope.
