The mission of United Cancer Research Society is to play a significant role in the elimination of cancer from the human condition through support of the highest quality research institutions in the nation.We are confident that a cancer-free future is not as far away as many people think. While approximately one out of three people will develop some type of cancer in their lifetime, fifty percent of all major cancers are either preventable or curable. This high rate of success would not be possible without the vital role played by cancer research. Only continued commitment to research on every level will enable us, through prevention and cure, to make cancer and cancer-related suffering and death a thing of the past.
Today’s aggressive research is winning the war against cancer, and the united Cancer Research Society is a direct connection to the areas of study and research facilities that are not only helping to make a positive difference in people’s lives, but are often responsible for saving them!
