canSURVIVE is an annual gallery stroll presented by Needs Beyond Medicine that features portraits of Utah-area cancer survivors, both those who have beaten the disease and those who are currently undergoing treatment. The event is Needs Beyond Medicine’s primary fundraiser that takes place every year in Salt Lake City in November. In 2013 the canSURVIVE event raised $5,262.79 to help support the Relief Program.
We are a nonprofit organization with a mission to decrease the burden of cancer by increasing awareness, education, and relief to cancer patients. Needs Beyond Medicine is focused in an effort to offer assistance toward enhancing the quality of life for those diagnosed with cancer through educational and financial support.
Needs Beyond Medicine’s vision for the future is to expand its programs on a national level. With the goal to raise awareness and educate the public on all types of cancers, Needs Beyond Medicine hopes to be able to offer the Relief Program to all cancer survivors currently in need of assistance, regardless of their geographic location or cancer type.
Needs Beyond Medicine relies strictly on grants, community partnerships, and donations for funding and for providing assistance to those currently struggling with cancer. Please support us in this cause of helping cancer survivors who are currently undergoing treatment to receive the aid they need.
Needs Beyond Medicine offers educational programs on various types of cancers. The presentations revolve around informing the public about the higher diagnosed cancers in America, such as breast, cervical, skin, and the top twelve diagnosed cancers.
All of Needs Beyond Medicine’s educational seminars are free and offer basic information on early detection, as well as educational brochures. The education programs are set in place to raise awareness throughout the communities they occur.
