Our Goal of Worldwide Events in 2015 and 2016
Our aim is to have as many people as possible running Rainbow Events, anywhere in the world, during 2015-2016. Our original idea was to fundraise through healthy lunches, suppers or dinners supporting The Rainbow Diet – and how it can help you beat cancer by Chris Woollams. This is where the campaign started. However, a Rainbow Event can be any event you choose that will raise money for this vital cause. Please pledge to run any simple, easy event that suits you and helps us achieve the aim of helping CANCERactive’s research team to maintain its essential and far-reaching work. Your efforts will help to continue to bring this critical information to those affected by cancer so that they can enhance their personal chances of survival. Each and every fundraising event will be a step towards helping a cancer sufferer.
The Rainbow Event Campaign
Imagine sitting in front of your doctor being told “You have cancer.” You go into freeze mode; most of us would only hear half the information of the diagnosis and understand even less, then fare even worse when we try to relay the details to anxious family and friends; we would be bewildered and confused. Latest research suggests that one in two of us will be told “you have cancer”. We need to resolve this dilemma. We need to help others and we need to help ourselves.
Very few people are untouched by cancer. You may have it; you may know someone who has it; you may know someone who has survived it; or you may worry about getting it.
Cancer research is extensive and has made major gains in treatments. The battle is not yet won but there are many, many more weapons in the armoury. This information, from around the world, on orthodox and integrated treatments and therapies is changing at an exciting pace but it is often scattered and can be difficult to access. CANCERactive now needs to expand its research team in order to continue to map this progress and make the flow of information available to all its readers. This knowledge can help cancer patients take more control over their lives at a time when they most need it.
CANCERactive is Britain’s Number 1 complementary and integrative (some people call it holistic) cancer charity. It was set up with the sole purpose of providing information on all cancer treatments. It aims to deliver the latest news and information on integrated treatments, its causes, nutrition, drugs, integrative therapies and, especially, the most recent scientific cancer research from all over the world which is then delivered to the reader in easy to understand English. It does not give advice or make recommendations. All this is intended to give you the knowledge that empowers you to make informed choices for yourself and to increase your personal odds of beating or preventing cancer.
The charity runs a website (www.canceractive.com) and publishes a magazine, Icon, 60,000 copies of which are delivered free of charge to 640 hospitals, hospices, libraries and cancer centres around the UK, including The Royal Marsden. Our message is “No one should die of ignorance.”
Why not put on a simple fundraiser, a lunch or a supper party? Be as creative as you like and help us raise much needed funds.
