STOP cancer funds beginning investigators by giving them seed money for experiments. That is crucial, because without "preliminary data" they cannot get grants from the National Institutes of Health. Keep up the good work, STOP Cancer! Two thumbs up!

STOP Cancer is a relatively small foundation for the impact it makes on clinical and translational research in LA area. It is driven by very devoted group of volunteers and donors who are critical for achieving its goals while minimizing the operating cost. They succeed, which is unique, in bringing together doctors with families, survivors and volunteers. And these occasions can be memorable events with many touching moments. As a result we are starting to see a growing and very motivated community of cancer research oriented professionals, activists and people directly touched by the disease. Let's keep it going!

This organization has funded 146 young researchers early in their careers allowing them to build bodies of work that would not have been possible without this seed funding. The value of the grants exceed $58 million due to the unique relationship enjoyed by STOP CANCER and the benefiting institutions, USC Norris, UCLA's Jonsson and City of Hope Comprehensive Cancer Centers. The supporters/members are magnificent in their commitment to making a difference in the fight against cancer which they have and continue to do.

The late humanitarian/philanthropist Dr. Armand Hammer had a passion to STOP CANCER and founded the organization 25 years ago in partnership with Sherry Lansing, devoted to cancer research. With a mission to fund young cancer investigators ay UCLA, USC and City of Hope, STOP CANCER has ever moved onward and forward--- and, as of this date 189 Research Awards have been granted with a value of over $58 million. Members and sponsors know exactly where their donations go-- they even meet the research doctor recipients. Many of the STOP CANCER Research Awardees have developed cancer drugs and procedures which are presently in international use, such as Herceptin and Gleevec, saving or prolonging many lives. Since STOP CANCER Research Awards are donated early in the career of the young doctors, they, in turn, are grateful to the organization for having permitted them to remain in the field of research.
