Mission Statement

The Cancer Cure Foundation was formed in December of 1976 as a non-profit organization dedicated to research and education in alternative cancer therapies. One of our main goals is provide individuals with information about the availability of treatments, doctors and clinics and to assist them in gathering the information they need to make the best decision for their particular situation. In March, 2002 we decided to expand our mission to include information on other conditions. Hence, we changed our name to The Cure Research Foundation.

The Cure Research Foundation is dedicated to the advancement of healing without drugs. We began in 1976 with a special focus on cancer, and our cancer division is the backbone of our current program. In March 2002, we decided to cover other health disorders as well. As funding permits, we will be offering counseling services for each of the following conditions: Aids, Alzheimer's, arthritis, diabetes, heart and circulatory disorders, neurological disorders, and pathogen-related diseases. As soon as we have the funds, we will open divisions to provide information on each of these conditions.
For now only one division is fully functioning - The Cancer Cure Foundation.

If you’re in one of the following categories, The Cancer Cure Foundation may be able to assist you:

  • You’ve just received a cancer diagnosis and want to know what your options are.
  • You’ve chosen to do chemotherapy and/or radiation and want to use adjunctive tools (such as nutrition, diet, etc) to support your immune system during treatment.
  • You have a history of cancer in your family and want to know how you can prevent yourself or other family members from developing cancer.
  • You’ve been given a terminal diagnosis by a conventional doctor with no chance of recovery using conventional methods.

Here are some of the questions you may be asking that Cancer Cure Foundation can help you with:

  • Can I combine conventional treatment methods with alternative methods?
  • What doctors and clinics are available locally, regionally and nationally that might be appropriate for my situation.
  • What types of treatments would a physician at an integrative/alternative clinic suggest for my situation?
  • How reliable are the alternative treatments?
  • What are the costs involved, and how much will my insurance company most likely cover?
  • Can I speak with other individuals who have used alternative treatment methods for this type of cancer successfully?
  • What books and web-sites are recommended for learning more about alternative therapies and clinics?
  • What are the laws regarding the use of alternative medicine for cancer in my state?

We are a small organization but we are highly motivated. Take a look at the financial report below that shows how our money is spent and you will see that we have very little fund-raising and administrative overhead. Few organizations can match that record.

Program services provided

We currently are engaged in the following public-service programs:

  • The operation of a hot line for cancer patients and their families providing information, guidance, and medical referrals.

  • The maintenance of a public library containing books, pamphlets, research papers, and the development of a data base of information on cancer and related health issues.

Plans for the future

Our wish list of projects to undertake if and when adequate funding becomes available includes the following:

  • An "Alive and Well" day to celebrate those who have used alternative approaches to treating their cancer
  • Cancer prevention seminars
  • Annual health fair
  • Simple research projects that can be implemented by high-school and college biology classes to demonstrate the link between nutrition and cancer.
  • Our mission is to sponsor scientific study in areas like nutrition, herbal remedies, immune-system stimulation, and cellular rejuvenation and to provide information to the public regarding the results of those studies. Note: The only animal testing we support is that which involves substances to make the animals healthier and live longer.
  • Analysis of cancer statistics to produce more accurate interpretations of current trends and risk factors.
  • Establish local chapters throughout the country to conduct public forums and to operate support groups for patients who have chosen alternative therapies.
  • Operate a national speakers bureau to assist the local chapters.
  • Produce educational videos on the subject of alternative cancer therapies and then donate them to libraries and video rental stores as a public service.
  • Publish and distribute pamphlets and booklets on various aspects of alternative cancer therapies to be made available to the public free of charge.
  • Expand our Internet website to make available to healthcare professionals a wide range of research papers on all aspects of cancer and its treatment.
