Give Change for Change this Black Philanthropy Month!

Support Dr. Hadiyah-Nicole Green's Ora Lee Smith Cancer Research Foundation

This year, as part of the Black Philanthropy Month (BPM) season, BPM Founder, Dr. Jackie Copeland-Carson, is calling our community to action to Give-Change-for-Change and support Dr. Hadiyah-Nicole Green's Ora Lee Smith's Foundation

Dr. Green and her Foundation are developing promising laser technology that could cure cancer one day without the damaging effects of chemotherapy or radiation.  

If every black American gave at least $1, Dr. Green could raise $40 million of the $100 million she needs to do human trials, pursue FDA approval, and keep the cost of this amazing technology affordable for people who need it.

The U.S. is facing a cancer crisis.  Over a half-million people are diagnosed with cancer each year. More than a million people die of cancer each year.  

A professor at Morehouse School of Medicine, Dr. Green is a well-respected scientist with wide media coverage. But raising funds for black and female innovators is not always easy.

Can't you spare just $1 before to test this unprecedented cancer treatment during this August for Black Philanthropy Month?  

Don't stop at $1.  Give more, if you can.  

But if the country's 40 million black Americans' each gave just $1 dollar to the nonprofit Ora Lee Cancer Research Foundation, we can lead the nation, maybe curing cancer in our lifetimes.

Spread the word, organizing your churches, schools, fraternities, sororities, giving circles and more to Spare some Change to Change Cancer.  Make your tax deductible donation here.  

Thank you for being a BIG Gamechanger for Black Philanthropy Month.  

Let's Change the Game for Cancer for All!
