Mission Statement

The year 2016 will be one of growth, and we are excited to utilize our resources in hopes to maximize our impact in providing assistance to the incredible cancer programs we’ve identified in the UK and internationally, that support our mission of making a difference in the lives of cancer patients. Together Against Cancer (“TAC”) was created because we saw the challenges that programs were experiencing receiving grants for vital research, aid for medical testing and equipment, and other supportive programs for those with cancer. As our organization has grown we’ve realized that support groups are a vital part of the patient’s treatment and rehabilitation. These support groups are capable of providing educational, emotional, financial, and spiritual support to those living with cancer along with their family and carers. We believe that in 2016, with your continued support, that we are going to be able to continue helping people with cancer through health education, empowering patients in helping them survive cancer, help programs using integrated protocols in patient healing, provide medical equipment and funding to programs in disadvantaged countries who are working directly with cancer patients, and so forth.

New endeavors are being pursued all the time making the link between cancer and degenerative diseases, and our lifestyles. New movements are rising up to help us make better and more informed choices. New programs are being tested and developed to specifically target cancer cells. These new challenges/opportunities have taken TAC to higher levels of reaching out to the general public in providing support and educational information about health and nutrition in learning to live a healthier lifestyle, and making more informed decisions regarding treatment and rehabilitation. In addition, complementary therapies have become more available to those individuals fighting these diseases.

As an organization that is dependent upon public support, we must continue to look for more cost effective ways to provide the vital educational materials about nutrition and complementary therapies for cancer. Together Against Cancer believes that the causes of cancer are mostly related to our environment and our living habits. And while genetics may play a role in some cancers, our immunity may be weakened by our environment and lifestyle, which lessens our ability to fight these cancers. By changing these two elements through improved nutritional habits, and the elimination of all known carcinogens from our environment, our food, our water and air, we can make tremendous strides in the fight against and in the prevention of cancer.

I believe we are now starting to see many exciting and rewarding endeavors into the field of learning and practicing good nutritional health habits. These efforts will continue to lead the way to a better understanding of how we can overcome and eliminate not only cancer, but also other life-threatening diseases through new methods of treatment. Only then will many thousands and even millions of lives be saved and much suffering eliminated. Together we can make a difference in this fight against cancer.
