Donations – cancer research needs your support

Effective treatments and therapies are already available for many forms of cancer today. It is cancer research over the last few decades that laid the foundations for these advances. In the interest of cancer patients both now and in the future, the Swiss Group for Clinical Cancer Research is working on further advances and improvements in prevention, early detection, diagnosis and treatment. The aim of our research is to increase the quality of life of cancer patients and to reduce the number of cancer patients further. In the past year, we have enrolled more than seven hundred cancer patients in clinical trials and in this way have been able to provide them with access to new therapy offering the best-possible option according to present scientific knowledge. Our sustained, assiduous research work is only possible thanks to the generous support of our partner organizations, corporate partners, institutional sponsors and donors.

There are many ways to support the Swiss Group for Clinical Cancer Research:
