CanCan is all about putting women into action about their ovarian and breast health, giving them tools for early detection, prevention and self-advocacy. We give healthy women, from all walks of life, a fun way to learn what they can do to feel more in control and less in fear about ovarian and breast cancer. We also give ovarian and breast cancer survivors a place to share the stories that can save lives.
CanCan puts on free ovarian and breast education parties, filled with socializing, laughter, camaraderie and just plain fun. Wherever woman gather, on campuses, houses of worship, workplaces, and mothers’ groups, CanCan will bring health 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 social media posts, educational resources on the website, and an engaging and informative blog.
Health Instructor and Ovarian or Breast Cancer Survivor Facilitator
A trained CanCan health instructor will teach the group about ovarian and breast health in a frank, fun, and fear-free environment. They will discuss risk factors, different types of screening methods, understanding family health history and genetic testing, signs and symptoms for breast and ovarian cancer. Our instructor will also discuss the important preventative lifestyle choices, like good nutrition and exercise, and how to integrate these choices into a busy lifestyle.
An ovarian or breast cancer survivor facilitator will tell her story and share information on how ovarian and breast cancers are treatable, survivable diseases, especially when detected early. She will discuss the anxiety and fears often felt about cancer and motivate and inspire women to take charge of their health, and reinforce the importance of knowing your bodies, learning your family history, and being an advocate for yourself.
