WE INVEST TOGETHER, FOR EACH OTHER.
We are a community investing in innovations to improve patient outcomes, expand access to care, and reduce the cost of care for ourselves and people like us . . . patients, survivors, and individuals at risk of developing cancer.
To learn more about our first community investment fund, CANCER FUND I, see below.
We Help Cancer Innovations Reach Patients
Our primary goal is to improve the lives of cancer patients and survivors by investing to move innovations BEYOND RESEARCH.
We also consider how these innovations might impact other stakeholders like at-risk populations, healthcare professionals, care providers, and payers.
We Invest Across Cancer Types
We support promising cancer innovations.
Our community helps choose the innovations with greatest impact potential across a range of cancers.
Our investment plan for CANCER FUND I targets a range of cancers.
We Invest for Impact with Financial Returns
Some returns are measured in dollars, others in their impact on our lives.
We aim for impact and return by carefully evaluating each investment opportunity and seeking a measurable impact across one or more of the following areas:
Our overriding goal is to improve cancer patient outcomes. As individuals who have felt its impact, we strive to make real progress in the fight against cancer by improving treatments to save lives.
Access to Care
Making care readily available is an important part of creating a better future for cancer patients.
Cost of Care
Having access to effective treatment only helps if it is affordable to those who need it most – cancer patients. We work to reduce the cost of care as part of our overall strategy.
We invest in three categories of innovations with real potential to improve patient outcomes, increase access to care, and reduce the cost of care.
Therapies & Management
Our priority is to improve cancer patient outcomes. One of the most impactful ways to do that is to make new therapies available and to improve tools for the management of cancer treatment.
Diagnostics & Monitoring
We invest in innovations that improve the ability to diagnose cancer early and to monitor treatment and metastasis.
Preventions & Enabling Technologies
Knowing that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, we support innovators developing new technologies to lower cancer risk.
We get it. Donating to cancer causes is easy while investing seems complicated and risky. You might even lose all of your money . . . just like donating.
With CANCER FUND, you invest to help cancer innovations reach patients and maybe earn a return on your money . . . not at all like donating.
