What Makes Us Different?

What makes CTRF different? Unlike other cancer foundations, the charitable donations we receive are focused on funding research that will have an impact on cancer patients today. To learn more, visit CTRF.org today.

  • CTRF focuses on cancer research which can have an impact on cancer patients today – not 5 or 10 years down the road – allowing for immediate results for individuals fighting the disease.

  • CTRF ONLY provides funding for research (not outreach, education, etc.) which assures a focused, immediate impact on patients.

  • CTRF research encompasses the most innovative applications of conventional therapies (chemotherapy, radiation and surgery) and the best in science-based complementary medicine (nutrition, biofeedback, psychoneuro-immunology, spiritual, etc).
  • CTRF only supports clinically cancer based studies that have passed the test tube stage, are ready to make a significant impact on cancer patients, and do not include use of laboratory animals.

  • 99 cents of every dollar donated to CTRF directly goes to cancer research programs, thanks to the generous underwriting of daily operational expenses. This ratio is unparalleled in any not-for-profit setting.
