September is Gynecologic Cancer Awareness Month

Our History
C.A.R.E., Cancer Advocacy Resources Education, Inc. evolved from a desire to support women and their families as they learn to cope with the devastating news of a cancer diagnosis. Prior to the formation of C.A.R.E., a group of health care professionals, survivors and community members supported and participated in the Sister Run® for seventeen years. The Run was created and organized in memory of a beloved sister to raise awareness of ovarian cancer. In 2013, many of the same dedicated volunteers formed C.A.R.E., a not-for-profit organization with a 501(c)(3) status to expand the focus to all gynecologic cancers.

Our Mission
Empowering women and families living with or at risk for gynecologic cancer through education, support, resources and advocacy.
We are committed to supporting women and families living with gynecologic cancers and educating all women, particularly, those most vulnerable. There cannot be a more important or more honorable mission for our organization.

Our Goals
To offer support to women diagnosed with gynecologic cancer and their families
To increase public awareness of gynecologic cancer symptoms
