On August 15, 2015 we are holding our annual summer event at Sunset Hill Farm Park in Valparaiso, IN. It’s such an amazing cause and all of the money raised will go to the foundation so we can continue to engage, inform, and inspire the Northwest Indiana Community to lead healthy lifestyles, and to take proactive measures to fight cancer!

We are currently seeking volunteers to help make our event as successful and fun as possible, while also seeking volunteers to help us with our Cancer Support Community programs for cancer patients and their families. 

If you’re interested, please email: info@ffmm.org

With your help we could achieve our goals!

Let’s make this all possible!

Let us know what you’re interested in!

Foundation for Molecular Medicine would like your assistance in order to help us organize cancer education seminars for cancer patients, survivors, their caregivers and loved ones. By filling out this survey you will help us to determine the best days and times of the week to hold these seminars, as well as, what activities you’d be most interested in participating in and what cancer types you would be most interested in learning and hearing about.

Please, if you have a second to spare, fill out the survey by clicking the link “Survey” and scrolling towards the bottom of the page.

We thank you for your generous efforts in helping us accomplish our ongoing mission.

Knowledge is Power!

Recently The New York Times posted an amazing article involving Angelina Jolie Pitt and her recent encounter with cancer. It’s such a powerful and educational article and I highly recommend giving it a quick read. Angelina really expresses the importance of being educated about cancer and ways to go about dealing with and trying to help prevent it.

 

“But it is possible to take control and tackle head-on any health issue. You can seek advice, learn about the options and make choices that are right for you. Knowledge is power.”

Did you know that cancer isn’t just one disease, but more than 100 different diseases?

These are just a few facts that most might not be aware of about cancer. The American Cancer Society has published facts and figures regarding cancer annually since 1952. The figures include the most current information and projected numbers for the future. You can find more facts and statistics by clicking this link –> Read More
