Our work speeds lifesaving treatments to patients.

Friends of Cancer Research (Friends) plays a unique role in speeding safe and effective new therapies to patients. We bring together key leaders from across healthcare to jointly solve the vexing problems and drive the coordination needed to accelerate the development of new therapies. Time is critical for millions of cancer patients – saving time upfront means rapid availability of new treatments.

With your support, Friends continues to advance innovation for patients. We have made considerable progress in the fight against cancer and are continuing to advance our mission through original research that will pave the way for new science and policies benefiting patients.

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