Celebrate Indigenous Life

CIL FB Banner 2021

The American Indian Cancer Foundation invites you to join us in recognizing National Cancer Survivor Awareness Month this June. Cancer is the leading cause of death among Native women and the second leading cause of death among Native men. AICAF’s Celebrate Indigenous Life campaign aims to honor, support, and raise awareness of Native cancer survivors. Because this national campaign happens on a digital platform, community members are able to participate from anywhere! Get involved by raising awareness of Indigenous cancer burdens, uplifting the voices of our community, and celebrating the strength and resiliency of survivors everywhere. #CelebrateIndigenousLife

Wear Lavender.

Wear lavender or shop AICAF’s online store for clothing designed in support of Native cancer survivors. All of the proceeds support the AICAF mission.


Start a conversation on Indigenous cancer burdens with members of your community. Share how cancer has impacted you through AICAF’s national Survivor Story Series and the Survivor Support Survey.


Learn from our culturally-tailored resources and Indigenous cancer survivors. AICAF’s Survivor Story Series is a collection of cancer stories from Native survivors, caregivers, and their families. It aims to uplift the voices of our warriors, providing them with a platform to share their experiences while inspiring Native people to be proactive about their health. 


Like the American Indian Cancer Foundation on Facebook, follow us on Twitter and Instagram, and sign up for our newsletter to stay up to date on upcoming events and cancer awareness campaigns. 

Host an online campaign. This is a powerful way to engage your community and an alternative to hosting an event. Feel free to copy, adapt, and tailor these sample social media posts for your community.


A gift to the American Indian Cancer Foundation helps us strengthen our programs, build larger campaigns, and provide more resources to families across Indian Country. While grants and contracts fund specific projects, it’s generous donors like you that play a vital role in making this work happen!
