Our Vision

Founded in 2007, KEM aims to increase common knowledge of cancer. KEM will effectively educate people about preventative practices that can sharply eliminate chances of acquiring cancer. In hopes of eradicating various forms of the disease, KEM will donate funds to cancer research while financially assisting sufferers of cancer and those undergoing treatment.

Our Mission

Karen E. Mumford cancer foundation (KEM) is a national nonprofit organization that provides financial assistance and debt relief to cancer patients for their revolving expenses. In addition, it strives to broaden general awareness of the impacts of cancer by way of counseling, presentations, and research funding.
