It’s the most important cancer conversation you can have.
Why we’re here
15-40 Connection is saving lives by teaching people how to detect cancer early.
A New Way to Think and Talk About Cancer
15-40 Connection is different from other cancer organizations and shares two new ways to think and talk about cancer:
15-40 Connection is focused on educating and empowering people about early cancer detection.
This education helps individuals become aware of the early warning signs of cancer. Most cancer organizations focus on research for a cure, treatment or support.
There are also many cancer organizations that focus on prevention. Unfortunately, we still don’t know what causes all cancers, so while some preventative measures can reduce risk; it can’t remove the risk completely. Research shows that detecting cancer early improves effectiveness of cancer treatment and also improves the chance of survival, which is why 15-40 Connection is empowering individuals to be aware of the early warning signs to give them their best chance at effective treatment and survival.
15-40 Connection aims to educate and empower individuals with the skills to recognize subtle health changes in themselves, rather than rely only on medical professionals.
Through 15-40 Connection’s 3 Steps Detect, individuals learn how to become active participants in their own health care so cancer as well as other illnesses can be diagnosed earlier. The result is a quicker return to health and most importantly lives saved.
15-40 Connection wants to empower everyone with the ability to detect cancer early when it is most treatable and curable. Your best chance is you!
