CanCan is all about putting people into action about their health, giving them tools for early detection, prevention and self-advocacy. We give students, from all walks of life, a fun way to learn what they can do to feel more in control and less in fear about cancer.
How To Host a party video
Each party includes:
- A one-hour workshop at no cost to you or your organization
- A health instructor to discuss risk factors, family history, signs and symptoms, screening methods, early detection, role of nutrition and exercise, and cancer myths
- An ovarian or breast cancer survivor to share her journey
- A comfortable setting where you can get all your questions answered
CanCan puts on free educational parties, dilled with socializing, laughter, camaraderie, and just plain fun. Wherever students gather on campus, clubs, organizations, residence halls, sororities, or groups of friends, CanCan will bring ovarian and breast educators and survivors to spread the word about early detection. A non-medical, fear-free, fun environment is the best environment for learning, even about serious topics. The parties are safe spaces created to encourage questions and sharing about ovarian and breast health. CanCan follows up the parties with interactive and thought provoking social media posts, educational resources on the website, and an engaging and informative blog.
