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.

Stop Cancer is an organization dedicated to building relationships between the philanthropic advocates and research based scientists in the Los Angeles Community. As a former cancer survivor myself, it is great to a group that is focused on not just fundraising but also in enriching the lives of those affected by this disease. I look forward to continuing my partnership with Stop Cancer and spreading their message of courage and perseverance in medical research.
