We Rock Cancer (www.werockcancer.org, social: @werockcancer) WRC is a Veteran Founded 501(c)(3) that provides FREE Skin Cancer Screenings at live music events and FREE mobile screenings for at-risk workers with limited access to health care. Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in America. Over one million new cases are expected worldwide this year. It is also the most curable - with early detection. Yet, in a busy life schedule, getting a Skin Cancer Screening is often treated as a low priority. We Rock Cancer’s mission is to change that. As one of our first dermatologist partners observed, "You guys have found a way to make skin cancer screenings cool!" Together with our musical artist and dermatologist partners, we raise awareness for prevention and enable early detection of skin cancer. Through our education, prevention, and early detection efforts, we aim to reduce the prevalence of skin cancer in these vulnerable populations and increase survivability.
Whether you enjoy developing relationships with donors or working live music events, we need you. If you prefer to analyze data, gather digital information, coordinate medical mission activities, create and market our messages, we also need you on one of our teams:
- Our Financial Resources Development Team obtains and manages the funding that is essential to our mission. This team will manage our existing donor base and further develop relationships with corporate and individual donors, as well as grant funding organizations. This team focuses on the following finance related areas: grant writing, corporate social responsibility and corporate giving development, research data analysis, and event specific fundraising. - Our Health Care Mission Team coordinates our dermatologists’ participation and organizes the screening process at our screening events. They coordinate with medical sponsors, shape our medical mission information, and support the Chief Medical Officer and Health Care Committee Chair. - Our Communications Team shapes our on-line and social media messaging, including art, still, and video images.
