Make a Cancer Charity Donation
“Change starts when someone sees the next step.” – William Drayton
Welcome to the Cancer Treatment Research Foundation (CTRF). Our cancer charity donation center is dedicated to changing the face of cancer – now! We are proud to have funded research trials by some of the most cutting-edge cancer researchers in the world.
How do we do it? We fund only the most innovative and promising clinical cancer research studies, focusing on those that are poised to have an immediate positive impact on current cancer patients today. Our goal is to uncover effective new treatments, cures, and prevention methods for all types of cancer, funding everything from lymphoma / leukemia research to pancreatic cancer research.
How can I help? From volunteering to holding a cancer fundraiser, there are many ways to help out the CTRF. Whether you decide to make a donation today or go shopping at a web site that donates a cut of sales to our cancer charity, every little bit helps.
Make a cancer charity donation today and become part of more than 50 funded projects and $10 million earmarked for innovative cancer research. And take pleasure in the fact that thanks to generous underwriting from our supporters, 99 cents of every dollar that you donate will go directly to cancer research.
What Types of Cancer Research Do You Fund?
CTRF has funded more than 60 different projects and committed more than $15 million to cancer research. Below is just a small sampling of the types of grants your cancer charity donation could help fund:
- Pancreatic Cancer Research
As one of the most lethal forms of cancer (more than 96% of patients do not survive) and the fifth most common cause of cancer death in the United States, the need for pancreatic cancer research has never been more immediate. As of 2006, CTRF is proud to be funding pancreatic cancer research being performed at the Siteman Cancer Center at Washington University in St. Louis, focusing on research that identifies early warning signs that could dramatically change the way pancreatic cancer is detected and treated.
- Leukemia / Lymphoma Research
CTRF has funded many different leukemia research and lymphoma research studies. Recent cancer charity donation grants for these closely-related diseases include a phase I/II Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma research study on Noscapine treatments, a phase II Chronic Lymphomic Leukemia research study that explores a new, non-toxic treatment agent, lymphoma research on cellular therapy and more. All of our funded leukemia / lymphoma research grants focus on studies that are poised to have immediate positive impact on patients.
- Multiple Myeloma Research
A number of multiple myeloma research trials we’ve funded include most recently a study at Dana Farber/Harvard in Boston of the potential impact of two anti-melanoma vaccines. Our cancer charity donation efforts have also supported an innovative multiple myeloma research study (published in the British Journal of Hematology) on immune gene therapy, which has served as an effective base for future gene research of this painful and debilitating disease.
- And many more
Visit our funded grants page to read information about every cancer research study that the CTRF has supported. You’ll not only find details on the pancreatic and lymphoma / leukemia research trials above, but also on all other forms of cancer we target, from breast cancer to colon cancer and beyond.
How Will my Cancer Charity Donation Make a Difference?
“CTRF (has a) desire to ensure that dollars given to cancer research really do something for cancer patients.” – Dr. Nora Disis, CTRF-funded Researcher

- Immediate Positive Impact
Your cancer charity donation will fund phase I and phase II cancer research that can have an immediate impact on cancer patients today – not 5, 10 or 20 years down the road.
- Innovative Trials & Projects
Our Board of Scientific Counselors selects only the most innovative and promising research trials for each cancer charity donation, strictly monitoring each for appropriate fund usage and quality of patient impact. We have been lucky to support some of the best minds in cancer research today.
- Impressive Breadth of Research
We fund a range of progressive studies that not only address all forms of cancer prevalent today, but also encompass an variety of treatment methodologies. Your cancer charity donation will support both combine conventional therapies as well as science-based complementary medicine, so no stone is left unturned.
- A Focus on Research ONLY
Unlike other organizations which target cancer charity donation efforts to a variety of endeavors (from counseling to outreach to education), CTRF focuses solely on cancer research funding, ensuring positive benefits for existing cancer patients today.
- Your Dollars Make A Difference
We’re proud to tell you that 99% of every cancer charity donation goes straight to cancer research programs, a ratio that is unparalleled in any other cancer charity.
Visit our cancer charity donation page and help support responsible cancer research today. Whether you want to target pancreatic cancer research, leukemia research, or any other form of this deadly disease, your cancer charity donation will make a difference. Help us change the face of cancer – NOW!
