Program areas at Ascension Wisconsin Foundation

Ascension Wisconsin is preventing cancer before it happens through the recent launch of the cancer prevention and wellness program, the first of its kind in the state. This program is made possible by rise against cancer, a campaign led by Ascension foundations of Wisconsin. We supported local cancer care in our Ascension fox valley, milwaukee and racine regions. The cancer prevention and wellness program saves lives. After high-risk patients are identified and referred to the program, they work with a highly-skilled team of Ascension Wisconsin providers to develop a care plan consisting of targeted screenings, testing, lifestyle changes and follow-up care. According to the world health organization, up to 50% of cancers are preventable. Our care team meets with high-risk individuals to help prevent cancer, provide early detection and treatment, and reduce the burden of cancer in our communities. Rise against cancer supports the cancer prevention and wellness program at a local level, providing the kind of care we want for those close to us and keeping them healthy in their fight against cancer. The kind of care we all deserve. Donor support is integral to developing and supporting this program across Ascension Wisconsin. As part of the Ascension catholic health ministry, the filing organization served in support of Ascension's commitment to both care for patients and communities and support caregivers and other associates through the challenges of the covid-19 global pandemic in fy22.
