Welcome to the Cancer Research Foundation…

Cancer is a group of diseases characterized by the uncontrolled growth and spread of abnormal cells. If the spread is not controlled, it can result in death. About 1,658,370 new cancer cases are expected to be diagnosed in 2015 and in the same year about 589,430 Americans are expected to die of cancer (or about 1,620 people per day).

We believe that these statistics are unacceptable. The Cancer Research Foundation is a United States, a tax-exempt, 501(c)3, public charity that was created to raise awareness about the importance of cancer research and the ongoing need for cancer research funding. This year, we are proud to support the innovative research programs at Mayo Clinic Cancer Center, Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, UCLA Jonsson Cancer Center Foundation, and UCSF Helen Diller Family Comprehensive Cancer Center.

Together, the research conducted at institutions such as these has resulted in discoveries that allow for earlier diagnosis of certain cancers and improvements in treatment. According to the American Cancer Society, the 5-year relative survival rate for all cancers diagnosed in 2004-2010 was 68%… up from 49% in 1975-1977. We are working to see survival rates continue to rise exponentially.

The goal of the Cancer Research Foundation is to see survival rates reach 100% and, ultimately, to become obsolete.

Our Funding Recipients

The Cancer Research Foundation was established to draw attention to the need for cancer research, to provide useful information and resources, and to raise funds for top research facilities across the nation. We consciously support diverse and innovative centers in the expectation that each institute will find a different piece to the puzzle and that, together, will find a cure or cures to the over 200 types of cancer.

Each selected research center has been recognized by their peers for excellence and is ranked as a Comprehensive Cancer Center (conducting programs in all three areas of research: basic research, clinical research, and prevention and control research). Our recipients for this year are…

Mayo Clinic Cancer Center

The Mayo Clinic’s research is focused on developing new and better ways to predict, diagnose, treat and prevent a wide range of cancer. Its innovations span “research bench to bedside,” bringing laboratory discoveries to the care of patients.

Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center

The world’s oldest and largest private cancer center, Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center (MSKCC) has devoted more than a century to patient care as well as to innovative research, making significant contributions to new and better therapies for the treatment of cancer.

UCLA Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer Center

The UCLA Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer Center has established an international reputation for developing new cancer therapies, providing the best in experimental and traditional cancer treatments and expertly guiding and training the next generation of medical researchers.

UCSF Comprehensive Cancer Center

The UCSF Helen Diller Family Comprehensive Cancer Center is dedicated to three fundamental pursuits: laboratory research into the causes and events of cancer’s progression; clinical research leading to viable treatments; and population research to improve the quality-of-life for those living with cancer.

Lucasgriffin, Avada Theme
Let me say something. You have an amazing theme and amazing/awesome support. They helped me on weekend. This is what I call an “extra mile” in customer relationship. So I gave 5 stars for the theme and if I could, I’d give 10 stars for support.
Gojcus, Avada Theme
Thank you for your very professional and prompt response. I went to look for answers to my own questions and quickly realized that the information I was requesting was very easy to find. As were the videos and the instructions. In fact everything has been perfect so far. This is by far the most well supported theme I have ever had the pleasure to work with. Lots of wonderful options. I wished I had found you before I spent money on a competitors theme. Thanks again for the great support and for a great product.
William Genske, Avada Theme
If I could give 100 stars for support and attention to detail I definitely would. I’ve purchased a good number of WordPress themes from various developers that look good on Themeforest but after you buy them you find numerous problems, bugs, crazy admin and very very poor support. I purchased the Avada theme and there were a couple of problems too, but the guys from ThemeFusion were remarkable – I really mean this. The speed of support and attention to detail is quite phenomenal. You will be extremely pleased.
