While cancer deaths have decreased in recent years, cancer is far from a chronic illness. Too many people are losing the fight – and their life.

Gateway for Cancer Research is a not-for-profit organization based in Schaumburg, IL, dedicated to curing cancer through funding patient-centered clinical studies that that offer innovative treatment options to cancer patients and make an impact on those battling cancer.

Gateway provides funding for conventional, integrative and complementary phase I and phase II cancer research studies done by some of the most pioneering researchers from around the world. Their vision is to be the premier organization funding clinical cancer research.

Gateway focuses on cancer research that can have an impact on cancer patients today as well as 10 years down the road. They ONLY provides funding for cancer research (not outreach, education, etc.), which assures a focused, immediate impact on patients.

Gateway-funded research encompasses the most innovative applications of conventional therapies (chemotherapy, radiation and surgery) and the best in science-based complementary medicine (nutrition, biofeedback, psychoneuro-immunology, spiritual, etc).

Gateway-funded research only supports clinically based studies that have passed the test tube stage, are ready to make a significant impact on cancer patients, and do not include use of laboratory animals.

Thanks to the generous underwriting of daily operational expenses, Gateway is a charity where 99 cents of every dollar donated to Gateway funds cancer research. This ratio is unparalleled in any not-for-profit setting.
