Why Should You Give to OCR?
Every day young, brilliant scientists are working to find ways to extend life and, ultimately, cure cancer. Their research includes new treatment modalities, as well as building knowledge about the various forms of cancer. Your gift will help bring new ideas to the lab. And approximately 70% of initial grants awarded by OCR are leveraged an average of 300%. So your gift can grow.
Seed money is essential to launch projects that can attract additional funding, as well as lead to collaborations and partnerships, then clinical trials, ultimately resulting in cancer solutions. With research needs exceeding the available funding, current senior investigators fear a future without an entire generation of scientists. That would be a terrible loss, not only to cancer research, but also to the profession.
