Friends of Cancer Research (Friends) is working to accelerate policy change, support groundbreaking science, and deliver new therapies to patients quickly and safely. Once we set a goal, we talk, we listen, we advocate, and we leave no stone unturned for patients. That’s how breakthroughs transpire. That’s how better policies happen. That’s how patients get what they need. 

We Know Who We Work For  

We unite scientists, pharmaceutical companies, and policy makers with shared trust and guide them toward meaningful cooperation. We work for patients, families, and anyone impacted by cancer. That’s what Friends does.  

We hope you will join us in this important work with a contribution to Friends.
