Hope Funds for Cancer Research

The mission of the Hope Funds for Cancer Research is to encourage investigation of innovative cancer treatment and detection for the most difficult-to-treat and understudied cancers. The Hope Funds for Cancer Research supports scientific and medical research programs aimed at increasing knowledge relating to both cancer care and prevention. We support programs we believe have the highest probability of success in addressing unmet medical needs, which we determine by rigorous scientific and economic analysis.
