2018 Benefit

GO held our annual benefit on December 1 at Boston's historic YMCA and Jordan Hall. See photos below!

Moving remarks were delivered by cancer survivor Larry Lucchino and researcher Dr. Olofunmilayo Falusi Olopade, telling of our shared responsibility to ensure that every cancer patient--regardless of zip code--has access to care.

At this event, GO released our comic book designed for West Africans about cervical cancer and the HPV vaccine. 

Support GO's cancer education programs for underserved people worldwide

In Nigeria, a woman dies of cervical cancer every hour. Nearly all of these deaths are avoidable with the HPV vaccine--and a strong advocacy campaign to encourage uptake among young people.

GO's comic book is key in this effort. Together in 2019, let's put our book in the hands of every Nigerian teenager, because every death to cervical cancer can, and must, be prevented.
