The EORTC Cancer Research Fund aims to raise funds to support the independent academic cancer research activities of the EORTC.

The EORTC is an international non-profit research association under Belgian law and has been conducting cancer clinical trials in Europe since 1962. Its mission is to improve the standard of cancer treatment for patients with cancer.

As a result of its comprehensive research program, more patients with cancer are being cured today than ever before, and many others are living longer with improved quality of life.

EORTC studies have led to increased survival rates for childhood cancers, Hodgkin’s disease and leukemia, melanoma, breast, uterine, prostate, testicular and bladder cancers, lung and larynx cancers, as well as many others including rare tumors (brain and sarcoma).

The EORTC is the only organization which carries out clinical trials at the European level for all types of cancer.

Your donation will help the EORTC continue to shape the future of cancer therapy.
