Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

1. Malecare aims to be the central information system for men diagnosed with cancer—providing information to the sector, and using that information to build the knowledge the sector needs to make better treatment decisions and improve their quality of life. To achieve this end, we have developed several online information laden websites and social and support community websites and in-person support groups. Financial Resources. Malecare will ask for charitable funding that supports the expansion of its programs to fulfill its mission. Organization. Malecare will build organizational capacity in accordance with programmatic, fundraising, and marketing goals and needs.

2. Expanding Malecare Workforce – Malecare seeks and trains volunteers for support group and program development leadership. Supporting Targeted Research – Start A Cure is Malecare's innovative research funding platform, where researchers upload projects which the public can then fund directly. Malecare founded the world's first LGBT cancer survivor program, which allows us to help LGBT cancer survivors and their loved ones. Advocacy: Malecare is the founder and leader of the Global Prostate Cancer Alliance.

3. Internal Resources - Malecare employs 5-6 staff and shares overhead and other resources with various other nonprofit companies at Malecare's headquarter location. Malecare has pro bono relationships with our law firm and marketing specialists. We are unique in employing volunteer professionals who are diagnosed with cancer, giving a perspective on program development unmatched by any other organization in our space.

5. We have achieved prominence in our space. We are respected for having developed the world's first psycho-oncology program for LGBT cancer survivors, the world's first support program for advanced stage prostate cancer patients and the world's first cancer research crowdfunding platform. We will be developing a new program called Facing Cancer Alone and developing advocacy in several new patient realms. Expanding the Malecare Workforce - since Malecare began to expand our niche related work and our advocacy work and our cancer research funding work, our work load has increased. Developing, supporting and maintaining new employees are work still to be accomplished.
