I believe in the strong hearts and work of the American Indian Cancer Foundation to eliminate cancer burdens for Indigenous peoples, and I believe in hope!
Hello! My name is Julie Ralston Aoki. I work for the Public Health Law Center where I have had the honor to work with the American Indian Cancer Foundation to support healthy lives for Indigenous peoples and eliminate cancer burdens for Native families across the US. Please join me in supporting the great and important work of AICAF in taking on cancer and working for the health of future generations. This work is now more important than ever. Thank you!
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.
