When cancer strikes we could be your greatest ally.
Tower Cancer Research Foundation, located on the Westside of Los Angeles in Beverly Hills, provides grants for clinical trials, innovative research, caring patient support and community education to promote more effective treatments for cancer and blood disorders.
Tower Cancer Research Foundation has active and growing research affiliations for the performance of hematology and oncology clinical trials with Translational Genomics Institute (T-GEN), a non-profit institute located in Phoenix, AZ, utilizes the science of genetic research as the basis for new drug discoveries, US Oncology Research, Pancreas Cancer Research Team, and the Lymphoma Research Consortium, among others.
Because we believe in treating the whole person, we also fund patient support services and cancer resources such as patient mentoring, cancer support groups, free workshops on topics such as acupressure and nutrition, and support for caregivers. We provide a free Information and Resource referral service to the Los Angeles community to help navigate the overwhelming world brought on by a cancer diagnosis.
To disseminate the most current cancer information, we have several educational newsletters on cancer research. These are newsletters geared to the lay public (link to For Patients Cancer News) as well as physicians and oncologists. (link to Hematology and Oncology Reviews) We also hold free public lecture series on cancer topics and conduct symposia for medical professionals.
In line with our mission to advance cancer research on every level, we support physician scientists with awards of annual grants to those doing cutting edge bench-to-bedside lab research.In addition to expanding cancer treatment options, we support treatments for blood and genetic disorders such as Gaucher disease and Pompe disease and the largest Gaucher program west of the Mississippi.
