To underscore its commitment to scale and grow cancer research funding and to align more closely with the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO), Conquer Cancer®, the ASCO Foundation, has updated its mission and vision.
MISSION: Accelerate breakthroughs in lifesaving research and empower people everywhere to conquer cancer.
VISION: A world where cancer is prevented or cured, and every survivor is healthy.
VALUES: People. Discovery. Impact.
“By funding research and programs while enabling oncology professionals to access and share vital information, we work in support of ASCO and its members to improve care for every cancer and every patient,” said Howard A. Burris III, MD, FACP, FASCO, chair, Conquer Cancer Board of Directors. “As it is for ASCO and its members, this vision is the hope of every Conquer Cancer donor.”
Conquer Cancer is proud to be recognized on Charity Navigator, Better Business Bureau Accredited Charity and Platinum status from Guidestar.
Conquer Cancer, the ASCO Foundation, funds research for every cancer, every patient, everywhere.
