Great organization!!! As a cancer survivor I fully endorse their mission of funding research to find a cure. Stop Cancer events are extremely well done and always exceed expectations. They take great care to ensure that the cost ratio comes in below the gold standard.

Its unique system of supporting research fellows early in their career is a stimulus for long term results. This is evident in many successful research programs supported in the early phases and comes to fruition in patient care. These long term results justifies the funding and support for those just starting their research experience.
Unique yes but very satisfying for achieving its goal of "STOP CANCER."

I cannot think of a better way to truly stop cancer than to support determined new investigators in their efforts to define and initiate promising independent research. I am an associate professor at USC where I have established research programs in which we have learned among other things that young males who use marijuana are disproportionately diagnosed with nonseminoma testis cancer (the most life-threatening subtype of this disease), women who have become mothers experience far lower risk of bladder cancer than those who never complete a pregnancy (the first substantive indicator of why women have far lower risk of this disease than men), and the identity of numerous inherited genetic variants that predispose to each of these cancers -- discovered in large measure through our major contributions to international consortia. I will always be grateful to STOPCANCER! for providing the initial pilot grant that allowed me to design and initiate these productive programs of research. Thank you!

I learned about this wonderful organization two years ago when my wife died of OAT small cell lung cancer within two weeks after diagnosis. There was no known satisfactory treatment or cure for it.
The beauty of Stop Cancer is that if you are able to make a research grant, it is YOU that can research and pick the team to do it from scientists at USC, UCLA and City of Hope. I made a grant, met the scientists (at City of Hope) and, believe it or not, they are actually on to a treatment that WILL SAVE LIVES, It was a long shot and it worked. Hope to go into clinical trials soon. They are living up to their motto of Funding Research and Finding Cures.

Stop Cancer is an amazing organization. This organization support 3 comprehensive hospitals in the city of Los Angeles. They provide research money for doctors who have new ideas that have not been tested. The organization support them for 3 years and they also get matching funds from there hospitals. The group also provide education and patient services. Small staff there most of the funds go for research.

This is a truly great charity. It has a very small administrative staff, so almost all of it's donations go directly to doctors and researchers working on ways to treat and defeat cancer. Unlike ACS, it does not provide all kinds of patient help, in addition to research, and it doesn't carry ACS's high administrative costs. It's gr

STOP CANCER is an amazing organization. They have provided valuable seed funding to kickstart research careers and projects that would otherwise suffer do to a lack of funds. It is one of the passionate organizations I know and I feel proud to be involved in their mission.
