Not your outdated cancer nonprofit. We’re doing things different.

Misti Lund

Founder & President

“Nothing feeds cancer like a sense of hopelessness, because when we’re hopeless, we stop trying. Staying hopeful, even curious, is essential, despite all the doubt and fear cancer brings with it. It has been proven in several studies that mindset, a strong community support, body movement, healthier eating habits, and holistic services that we offer extend and maximize quality of life.
Here at answer4cancer we believe it’s important that people feel the power of their own choices in controlling and maintaining their health. Often times, upon diagnosis, a person feels shock, overwhelm, and a roller coaster of emotions as they’re given the news, along with an extensive treatment plan, and then sent on their way. Sometimes they’re waiting in limbo for weeks or even months to get their insurance to approve treatment, while they sit at home in a panic and full of worry. There needs to be something in place that handles mindset, lowers anxiety, gets them grounded with clarity, promotes healthy cell production, and strengthen their immune system and physical body so that they have a higher and faster success rate when going through treatments. We want them to maximize and experience their overall sense of well being. The goal is synergy, a phenomenon in which the whole is more important than the sum of its parts. This is exactly what we do.”

Misti Lund has been recognized in 2022 as the “Top 100 Women Of Influence” by My Vegas magazine, as well as received the Hattie Henderson Community Service Award. What she’s most proud of is the Unsung Hero Award” she received from Nevada Cancer Coalition on September 28, 2021 stating, “In appreciation of her leadership and dedication to cancer patients and survivors in Southern Nevada.” These acknowledgements are shared as reminders that the benefits of holistic programs is indeed helpful and creating a lasting impact in the lives of cancer patients in Nevada.

She’s passionate for people and has her heart set on changing the cancer journey for those going through it by giving them immediate resources and connections that are not typically readily available.
