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.
