About Cancer Schmancer:

After surviving her own experience with cancer, actress/activist visionary Fran Drescher decided to share her story so that what happened to her wouldn’t happen to others. After writing her book, Cancer Schmancer, she realized the book was not the end but instead the beginning of a life mission to improve women’s healthcare in America. Shortly thereafter, she founded The Cancer Schmancer movement, a non-profit dedicated to saving women’s lives through early detection of cancer. One in every three women will be diagnosed with cancer in her lifetime.
