Campaign for Cancer Prevention connects 6 million+ members on Facebook Causes to research at BWH
Date:10/3/2011

October 3, 2011 BOSTON, Massachusetts The Campaign for Cancer Prevention (CCP) began in 2007 with the single goal of uniting those across the globe who care about preventing cancer.

"As one of the first causes launched on our platform, it's been truly exciting to watch CCP accelerate and increase its impact," said Joe Green, co-founder and president of Causes. "At Causes, we're focused on empowering those who want to make the world a better place and the Campaign for Cancer Prevention is one of our mos
