Welcome to Courage to Dare Foundation

Courage To Dare is dedicated to creating advanced education and awareness about breast cancer to thousands of rural communities and individuals living in Wisconsin and West Africa. From Juliet Aguwa’s personal experience, her vision for Courage To Dare Foundation was formed. Having gone through all the stages of treatment and emerging a survivor, she realized that there were many African women and men that were not privileged with the information that I had or access to the kind of treatments that I had.

In honor of all the work, Juliet Aguwa was invited as a guest on the November 16, 2010 Oprah Winfrey Show, as an audience of individuals that the show honored for making a difference in their communities. As a surprise to the audience and the invited guests, the show ended up being Oprah Winfrey’s final “Oprah’s Favorite Things” show.

Courage To Dare Foundation in partnership with Jess-Riel Consulting, IT News Africa and supporting partners bring together the First Africa Cancer Conference titled "Kick CANCER Out of Africa: Challenges and Opportunities". The events brings together cancer survivors, family-members & friends, NGOs, scientists, researchers, doctors, nurses, medical professionals, health policy makers, government agencies and much more. The conference will address the rise of cancer (prevalence, incidence and mortality) in Africa. It will provide up-to-date and relevant information on all cancer types (breast, prostate, lung, leukemia, etc), as well as information on diagnoses, treatments and management of cancer, especially in the African setting. Effective cancer annihilation requires four robust and strategically designed approaches, namely: Awareness, Education, Prevention and Access.
