Bio

Following her mother's breast cancer diagnosis in 2009, Yael Cohen decided to use the 'F word' to fight the 'C word.'
Yael is founder, president, and CFF (Chief Cancer F*cker) of FCancer, a non-profit organization that encourages and empowers Generation Y talk to their parents about early detection. It gives them a clear call to action to involve, engage, and educate their parents.

Astounded to learn that over 90% of cancers are curable in stage one, the movement aims to create a generation that puts an END to late stage cancer diagnosis.

Named one of Fast Company's "100 Most Creative People in Business," in 2012, Cohen has grown FCancer into an inspirational and influential player in the charity space and has recruited a host of A-list celebrities to use their influence to garner public support.

Yael has quickly become an influential member of the not-for-profit world as well, in demand to to talk about the charity's unconventional methods and success. 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, TEDMED, and the UN Nexus conference. She was named one of twelve people who are transforming philanthropy by The Globe and Mail, and was listed as one of Chatelaine Magazine's 'Hot 20 Under 30' for her influence in the non-profit sector.
