The Conquer Cancer Foundation focuses on every moment in which cancer touches people's lives - from prevention through survivorship, and it supports ground-breaking research and programs that make a tangible difference in the lives of people with cancer.
The Foundation works to ensure that vital information for physicians, patients and families is available and easily accessible wherever and whenever it's needed by helping to underwrite the cost of Cancer.Net, the award-winning patient education website of ASCO, and funding the creation and distribution of patient information materials to physicians' offices nationwide. Please make a donation to the Conquer Cancer Foundation so it can continue its support of these vital programs.
The Foundation also funds research in virtually all cancers, including rare ones. Through the Grants and Awards Program, which is among the largest of any professional medical society in the United States, the Foundation funds the brightest minds in clinical and translational cancer research. It is one of few organizations that supports early-stage research by promising young investigators, particularly through the Conquer Cancer Foundation Young Investigator Award, Career Development Award, and Merit Award. Since 1984, more than $70 million has been awarded to 800+ researchers around the world in support of a multitude of innovative research initiatives that have led to new treatments and improved care.
