Our Mission: The Cure Cancer Now Foundation promotes cancer research and education. Our founder, Anahid Jewett, started this organization in hopes that one day this disease will be defeated. The CDC estimates each year globally, about 14 million people learn they have cancer, and 8 million people die from the disease. Research suggests that one-third of cancer deaths can be prevented, but sometimes services and technologies are not widely available, especially in low- and middle-income countries. Cure Cancer Now Foundation wants to reduce that number by promoting cutting edge technology and by inspiring individual action by researchers all over the world.
