NFCR is Cancer Research
From day one, NFCR has stood apart from larger cancer charities and government science funding institutions because we support the cutting edge research that those other groups can’t and won’t fund.
NFCR is dedicated to supporting “high risk/high reward” cancer research and public education relating to prevention, early diagnosis, better treatments and, ultimately, a cure for cancer.
The National Foundation is deeply honored and grateful that our mission of cancer research to find new and better ways to prevent, diagnose and treat all types of cancer was supported and valued by Barbara Karpouzis Valavanes.
With the help of 4.5 million individual donors over the last 40 years, NFCR has delivered more than $340 million in funding to cancer research leading to numerous breakthroughs, including prevention strategies, earlier diagnostic techniques, and new anticancer drugs and therapies.
