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 a local charity, helping our local institutions such as UCLA and The City of Hope. Dear friends and family have battled cancer and been well served by these places. I know that the money I donate will help others battling these diseases.

The goal of Stop Cancer can immediately be found in its logo "Stop Cancer [by] Funding Research, Finding Cures." While there are many non profits that's help cancer patients achieve many goals for themselves or make one of their last wishes come true, all the fund received go directly to help find solutions cures for cancer. The organization ahs continuously grown every year and I am happy to be a part of the growth.

Stop Cancer is a small, but very focused organization. It's very efficiently run, so I know that my donations and my time are well spent, with little overhead bloat like so many big organizations. The group is laser-focused on finding and funding research doctors who are local, which is great. I feel like i'm not only helping to fund cancer research, but it's within my own community. And I get to see and hear from the doctors directly. It's not some disconnected, distant situation. It's here, in my town, before my eyes. As will hopefully be a cure.
