Mission Statement

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.
