The field of cancer research is vast and The Hope Foundation is encouraged by the many dedicated organizations that are out there with us. We also understand that resources are limited. Because of this, The Hope Foundation has a focused mission that separates us from the others: we support the science, education and patients of SWOG, a research cooperative that conducts multidisciplinary clinical trials to improve the practice of medicine in preventing, detecting, and treating cancer, and that works to enhance the quality of life for cancer survivors.

With the help of the world’s leading clinicians and scientists at SWOG and beyond, we carefully navigate the vast field of cancer research. Experts from top cancer centers and academic institutions select promising clinical trials and laboratories where support from the Foundation will have significant impact, both for researchers and for cancer patients. Top oncology and statistical faculty head the education programs we fund. Our patient advocate programs are collaborations with major advocacy groups across the country.

We all have worthy causes within the field of cancer research, but by supporting The Hope Foundation you are supporting a cause with a proven track record in changing the face of cancer treatment and prevention.
