"The Union for International Cancer Control (UICC) unites and supports the cancer community to reduce the global cancer burden, to promote greater equity, and to ensure that cancer control continues to be a priority in the world health and development agenda."
The Cancer Warriors Foundation (CWFI) is founded on the conviction that cancer can be beaten, if detected early, given proper management and care, and armed with the unwavering faith, that “God will make a way”.
CWFI has a vision that is founded on the conviction that one death is too many and that no Filipino child should suffer a diminished quality of life because of cancer. This foundation mainly focuses on advocacy, awareness and treatment. They are advocates in the policy, media and social arena as and raise awareness with information campaign on childhood cancer. They have also implemented direct patient treatment assistance and a resource mobilization for rural areas.
James, a childhood cancer survivor, vowed to dedicate the rest of his life to fighting cancer, in whatever way he could. Together with a group of passionate and committed young volunteers, he found a way to make good on his promise. In May, 2000, Cancer Warriors Foundation was organized.
In July 2009, CWFI was accepted as associate UICC member.
