How you can help make the next landmark breakthrough in cancer research 

You could help make history. You could help the Asian Fund for Cancer Research (AFCR) find the next big advance in the search for cancer cures with your gift today.

Just like there have been landmark medical advances in the past—the prevention of polio, miracle drugs like penicillin, the artificial heart, organ transplants—so too will there soon be new iconic breakthroughs in the fight against cancer.

And you can be part of this historical success! 

Many of the medical breakthroughs that are saving millions of lives nowadays are the fruits of innovative ideas and decades of research. Your gift to AFCR today could help translate more of these ideas to the next big landmark advances in cancer prevention, early diagnosis, or treatment. Or maybe even a cure.

That’s because AFCR is committed to finding cures for all types of cancer. And we’re uniquely positioned to jump in and swiftly fund promising, innovative research to make that happen. But we can’t do it without you.

Help us reach the next big milestone in the battle against cancer 

Thanks to friends like you, AFCR funding continues to implement in Asia the newest cancer research discoveries and technologies from around the world, investigate the distinct causes of cancer in Asian populations through innovative genetic and molecular research, and develop more effective therapies tailored to Asian cancer patients. Your support fuels our dedication to bridging the scientific and educational gaps in cancer research and cancer prevention in Asian countries. AFCR’s cutting-edge cancer research holds the future for Asian cancer patients for generations to come.

That’s what your gift today could do

Your generosity could make all the difference. It would help AFCR fund another idea that could lead to a landmark breakthrough in the battle against cancer. We are on the brink of the next breakthrough discovery. And we need your help now more than ever before – to cure cancer and save lives.

Cancer is one of the leading causes of death in the world.

Approximately 8 million people die from cancer and 14 million new cases every year.

That’s = 38,000 new diagnoses each day.

And = 26 people will learn that they have cancer every minute.

Estimated by 2030, 22 million new cancer cases and 13 million cancer deaths will occur each year worldwide.

Over 40% of all cancers could be avoided by reducing tobacco use, improving diets and physical activity, lowering alcohol consumption, eliminating workplace carcinogens and immunizing against hepatitis B virus and the human papillomavirus.

Other than traditional treatments such as surgery, chemotherapy and radiation therapy, many cancers can be more effectively treated and the survival rate can be increased through new therapeutic approaches including targeted therapy, personalized medicine, and cancer gene therapy.
