When her mother was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2009, Yael Cohen decided to use the 'F word' to fight the 'C word.' Yael is founder, president, and CFF (Chief Cancer Fucker) of FCancer, a non-profit organization dedicated to spreading the word about the importance of early detection. And one that does things very differently.
In a very short time, FCancer has attracted thousands of Gen Y Millenials - including a host of A-list celebrities - who have participated in the movement and are using their influence to bring awareness to the cause and to gain support from the public. And Yael has quickly become an influential member of the not-for-profit world. She was invited to be part of the Summit Series in Washington DC, Miami, and Tahoe, and has participated in the Next Generation Leadership discussions at the White House, the Clinton Global Initiative, TED Women, TEDGlobal, TEDMED, and the UN Nexus conference. Yael was named one of twelve people who are transforming philanthropy by The Globe and Mail, listed as one of Chatelaine Magazine's 'Hot 20 Under 30' for her influence in the non-profit sector, and was named one of Fast Company's Most Creative People in Business for 2012.
