Support Scott Hamilton CARES Foundation

The reality of long term side effects of cancer treatment is not new. At least 50% of cancer survivors experience treatment related side effects, many lasting for years, and some life threatening. Breakthroughs in our understanding of cancer and its biology have fostered research and development of new targeted treatments for cancer. Join us in our quest to fast track innovative research projects focused on the provision of having more options for individuals that include less toxic treatments for cancer and long term survivorship.  

With your gifts, we can bring hope that our funding of research will make available new treatments that diminish the side effects and suffering from traditional cancer treatment and bring hope to individuals who in the future will be diagnosed with cancer. Together, we can turn cancer upside down by investing in precision targeted cancer research that spares the individual from future harm. Thank you for your support!
