About OM Impact
OM Impact is an organization dedicated to promoting cancer awareness, testing and prevention. With a tagline of “Spread Awareness. Impact Lives,” OM Impact has embarked on a mission to fund early prevention and testing of cancer, and to bring the life-saving promise of genetic testing to as wide of an audience as possible. The battle against cancer is a difficult one, but with enough determination and perseverance, it can be won.
OM Impact, for example, is at the forefront of the battle against breast cancer, which alone kills 450,000 people each year, according to the World Health Organization (WHO). The real tragedy, of course, is that many of those deaths could have been prevented in the first place. Modern DNA genetic testing has progressed to the point where trained medical practitioners can identify the specific markers that code for the deadliest forms of cancer. Once you can identify the markers for breast, ovarian or prostate cancer, it is much easier to create a health and wellness strategy in advance. Prevention is much easier than curing.
Thus, it has to be a priority that people can access gene testing and life-saving preventive treatment before it is too late. A little knowledge can save many lives. Now that DNA testing has gone mainstream, the cost of getting a personalized lab report has become more affordable than ever before. But many people may still not be aware that these tests exist, or how to use them.
That’s where OM Impact steps in to make an impact. OM Impact funds early prevention and testing, such as gene testing and preventive treatment. OM Impact also helps people in low- and middle-income countries overcome the financial burdens of modern healthcare, including the costs of genetic testing. Getting an early diagnosis is their best chance at beating breast cancer, and OM Impact is doing everything possible to empower these people.
The battle against cancer really is a battle, which is why beautifully designed OM Impact bracelets celebrate the “Survivor” and the “Fighter.” For cancer survivors and their families, words like “love,” “faith,” “hope” and “belief” are more than just words – they are what keeps people moving forward, one day at a time. The real heroes in the battle against cancer are the everyday people who are struggling to survive, and we are proud to celebrate and support them.
OM Impact donates 100% of net proceeds of all sales to cancer research and charities. Our vision is a world in which gene testing is available to everyone at an affordable price. Everyone should be aware of the risk factors in their genes in order to make the right healthcare choices. This is simply our best chance to beat cancer, and a battle that we are willing to fight.
