Welcome to Veronica’s Angels Foundation
Our mission is to support our affiliate partners that provide integrative care programs free of charge to enhance the "quality of life" of cancer patients in our communities.
Promote health education and disease prevention awareness in our communities, is the key to preventing disease. Many cancer deaths could be prevented by making healthy choices like not smoking, eating right, keeping active, and getting recommended screening tests.
More than one million people in the United States get cancer each year. A diagnosis of cancer or even a suspicion of cancer is fearful. One can reflect on friends or family who died of cancer. Of all the celebrities who got cancer, gradually deteriorated and died. (Other than Suzanne Somers who went alternative, thrived, survived, and wrote a book about it.) Even TV shows, movies feature someone with cancer has them dying at the end.
So it’s no wonder research shows that cancer is the most feared disease in the world along with being the most feared word too.
Take the statistics on Colon Cancer alone:
• Colon cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death in the United States
• Each year, nearly 150,000 Americans are diagnosed with colon cancer
• Colon cancer affects men and women equally
• If detected and treated early, colon cancer is up to 90% curable
• There are currently more than one million colon cancer survivors in the U.S.
Our focus is to promote a healthy lifestyle through education and disease prevention awareness in our communities. Prevention the CURE? It is our choice to live a healthy active lifestyle, one of the key components to the prevention of cancer and other diseases. Knowing your body and family genetic history may save your life!
Our goal is provide the needed financial support to health care treatment programs that benefit the needs of cancer patients. A recent study on the "quality of life" of cancer patients "before and after surgery", revealed a need. Through our alliance with other community organizations, we can help improve the "quality of life" for those in need. No one should ever feel that he or she are alone in this journey.
