Together WE CAN
About the Movement
The Cancer Prevention Movement was established by Preventive Oncologist, Transformational Health Coach, and award-winning author, Melanie R. Palomares, M.D., M.S (“Dr. Mel”) in March 2018. The Cancer Prevention Movement grew from Dr. Mel’s declaration at the release of her first book in February 2017 that “Cancer will cease to exist as we know it by the year 2030!”
Our aim is to decrease the global burden of cancer through the provision of public education, scientific research, and customized genetic and environmental cancer risk assessment tailored to individuals and families.
minimize their cancer risk and maintain long-term health.
A portion of all Cancer Prevention Movement proceeds is donated to non-profit organizations
that support continued research in cancer risk, prevention, and early detection.
What We Do
About Our Founder
With multidisciplinary training in oncology, epidemiology, and genetics, Melanie R. Palomares, M.D., M.S., affectionately known as “Dr. Mel”, practices Preventive Oncology. Her focus is cancer prevention, early detection, and risk assessment.
After nearly 20 years in academic medicine, at the Fred Hutch, University of Washington, City of Hope and the University of Southern California, she founded the Cancer Prevention Movement.
But what is much more inspiring than her credentials, is her personal story of how cancer has affected her family and herself.
