The John Estrella Foundation for Cancer Research is a completely volunteer run nonprofit ( IRS 501(c)(3) ) organization founded in memory of John Estrella. John's life was characterized by courage. He bravely fought for his country in Vietnam and later displayed similar heroism in his battle against cancer. John participated in several clinical research trials which helped pave the way for a major treatment breakthrough in renal cell carcinoma. Because of John's dedication his foundation's mission is to provide hope through research for individuals and families touched by cancer.
Our aim is to provide a yearly grant to develop and fund research initiatives that will explore new, innovative treatments for advanced cancer.
