The Samuel Waxman Cancer Research Foundation (SWCRF) focuses on the most promising strategies for developing cures and treatments for many types of cancer. It even offers hope of being able to prevent cancer from developing. We are on the cutting edge of a revolution with alternatives to the traditional treatments of chemotherapy and radiation, which kill cancer (and healthy) cells. Foundation-supported research includes reprogramming chaotically growing cancer cells to behave normally, understanding cancer stem cells, and mobilizing the immune system. These will lead to precisely targeted treatments or preventatives which will have minimal side effects on the recipients.
