We need your help. The mission of the Cure Cancer Now Foundation is to ultimately win the battle against cancer and this mission is mainly funded by donation. We hope to decrease or eliminate the physical and emotional fear as well as the suffering and pain that happens with this dreaded disease. This can be done through prevention, early diagnosis and effective treatment strategies based on sound scientific research.
Approximately 39.6 percent of men and women will be diagnosed with cancer at some point during their lifetime, based on 2010-2012 data. Cancer accounts for 8 million deaths per year worldwide. Every year about 560,000 Americans are expected to die of cancer; more than 1,500 people a day (NITIM, 2015).
Cure Cancer Now Foundation members are doctors, scientists and professionals whose focus is the prevention and treatment of cancer. CCNF sponsors and attends conferences dedicated to cancer research. CCNF also gives awards and scholarships to the many people who help fight cancer.
The foundation was founded by cancer researchers with an in depth knowledge of the field. Through their relentless efforts in cancer research they came to realize that to expedite the discovery of a cure for cancer one needs to increase funding for cancer research. Their extensive experience with granting agencies, both at the private and governmental level, paved the way for starting the foundation. It was clear that a large number of research grants on finding a cure for cancer never came to see the light of the day and are not funded by many granting agencies. Indeed, greater than 80% of research grants do not receive support and some which do are sometimes discontinued because of a variety of reasons.
Those scientists who are in the field and care about the suffering and pain of the patients need to take a much needed stand on raising funds to support key research, which would otherwise remain unfinished because of a lack of financial support. In addition, a large number of research funds are usually spent in administering the grants rather than performing the actual research. Therefore, by finding ways to minimize cost, one would be able to increase the funds for basic and clinical research. This will lead to more preventive and early treatment strategies for cancer.
