The Cure Starts Now

Mission

The Cure Starts Now represents something truly different – a grassroots effort dedicated to, not just fighting one cancer, but the elimination of ALL cancers. We believe as the experts do; that in order to truly cure cancer you have to focus on:

those cancers that are immune to treatment
those cancers that also affect children
and those cancers that are the biggest bullies with the highest death rate
We call this the Homerun Cure, but the idea isn’t new. As a matter of fact, this Homerun strategy dates back to the early 1900’s when bold advances in cancer research were made, leading to the invention of surgical efforts, radiation and finally chemotherapy. But the advancements stopped, leaving many patients behind without hope of survival. Resources were prioritized for those cancers that affected the most people rather than those we could learn the most from, and the focus shifted from cures to treatments.

Research to find new treatments for childhood brain tumors represents one of our greatest opportunities to advance cancer research in general.

A new strategy for fighting cancer starts today. The Cure Starts Now is dedicated to pursuing cancer research on those fronts that offer the most promise rather than simply fighting “cancer by the numbers” as we have for the past 70 years. And in doing so, we pledge that the fight against cancer will be won. The cure starts NOW.
