cancer research saves lives


Dear Conquer Cancer donors and supporters,


To underscore our commitment to scale and grow cancer research funding and to align more closely with ASCO, Conquer Cancer updated its mission and vision in 2021.


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.


These are bold declarations, and we did not land on them lightly. The commitment of Conquer Cancer donors in support of our critical work has allowed us to adopt the statements confidently.


In 2021, Conquer Cancer invested more than $26 million to advance our mission and work toward our new vision - the same charge guiding ASCO, the world's leading professional organization for physicians and oncology professionals caring for people with cancer. By funding research and programs while enabling cancer care experts to access and share vital information, we work in support of ASCO, its members, and Conquer Cancer donors to improve care for every cancer, every patient, everywhere.  
As these principles are our driving force, we remain grateful for the Conquer Cancer donors who fuel our impact and make a difference for every person who is conquering cancer. 


Please take a look at our 2021 Impact Report to see how your support makes all the difference
