Anal cancer carries an incredibly difficult stigma which remains one of the main challenges to improving outcomes for patients.
Lots of patients talk about the solitude they feel after being diagnosed with life-threatening anal cancer, because they are not comfortable discussing it openly for fear of judgement.
The stigma also prevents fair conversation, resulting in less prevention, research and education about the illness.
Uranus Wiper aims to help put a big dent in the stigma around anal cancer by
1. Prominently highlighting our support for the cause on our product packaging, social media channels and advertising creatives to help increase awareness about anal cancer.
2. Also, we donate a penny to the Anal Cancer Foundation for every pack of Uranus Wiper you buy.
The Anal Cancer Foundation is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization in the USA and a registered charity in the UK.
The Foundation aims to educate the public about anal cancer, to address the stigma associated with the disease, to advocate for prevention and improved early screening methods, to provide resources for patients, caregivers and members of the scientific and medical communities, and to invest in research for therapeutic treatments.
Uranus Wiper supports the Anal Cancer Foundation through Work for Good; an online platform that makes it easier for small businesses like us to give to charity through our sales while staying compliant with the Charities Act 2016.
