The purpose of our foundation is to raise awareness, share the importance of a healthy diet and lifestyle, and raise money for Bladder Cancer research.

The Howard J. Cohen Bladder Cancer Foundation was founded in September of 2014 by Howard J. Cohen, just one year after he was diagnosed with the disease.

For Howard it was a winning fight, but through the experience he witnessed firsthand the lack of global awareness there has been for bladder cancer, the undervaluing of a healthy lifestyle and

plant-based diet in combating the disease, and lastly the dire lack of funding there has been towards the advancement of bladder cancer treatments.

Without research there have been no new advancements in the treatment of bladder cancer in the last 20 years, and the current treatment is as invasive as it is outdated.

Get Involved!

It’s not about how much you give, it’s that you give.

There are literally hundreds of ways to support our cause, more than we’ve even dreamed up yet, but nothing is more powerful in raising awareness than your participation.

When people gather around a cause there is an indefinable synergy that catalyzes change as people connect, network, and show their support for families, survivors, and fighters.

Additionally- the icing on the cake- these events help us to raise the money needed for the advancement of bladdder cancer treatements through cutting edge research.

Don’t underestiimate the power of just showing up. No offering or involvement is to little. Every tiny choice we make echoes around the world. Make some noise for bladder cancer awareness and research at our next event!

Predicting Treatment Response To Chemotherapy.

June 9, 2017
