Our Mission Statement

"Our Mission is to make cancer prevention programs available to the community we serve.  Our Focus is to grant access to the tests and/or screenings necessary to those individuals who may otherwise be denied.  Our hope is to enrich the Life of every individual in need, one at a time."


A  Message from
Madeline Fiadini LoRe

Health Care. It’s the hot topic on many of our minds. More people are unemployed.  The numbers are staggering. It is not surprising that elective screenings are among the first “luxuries” to be cut from a family's household budget.  Unfortunately this decision could be catastrophic if a preventable cancer results from a test or screening  not taken.  As a three time cancer survivor it is my passion to prevent as many cancers as I possibly can. Sometimes all it takes is a simple test.  Not having the money to pay for such a test is no longer a viable excuse. The Madeline Fiadini LoRe Foundation for Cancer Prevention was established specifically to address those individuals.  At the very first MFL Foundation Board meeting, our Board recognized a need in the community.  Our mission has focused on fulfilling this void with access to free Colon, Breast, Prostate, and Oral screenings.  With our diligent Board of Trustees, we have set policy for eligibility and access to the tests/screenings.  Funding to support our efforts comes from grants, donations and from several fundraising events throughout the year, including our ANNUAL GALA. The task before us is monumental but we believe we can make headway, one case at a time. It only takes one person to tell a friend about us.  You may be saving their life.
