Rallying for HOPE.
Organizers of the HOPE Rally feel it’s important to recognize that cancer has no boundaries and to that end we have hand-picked three charities that represent the interests of both men and women who need our support; who need to know there is still HOPE.
Funding the world’s most promising research to improve the prevention, detection and treatment of prostate cancer and ultimately cure it for good.
Prostate Cancer Foundation
Since inception, PCF has been a pioneer in new drug development, providing key funding for FDA-approved treatments that improve survivorship. PCF is unique in its innovative approach to medical research funding by identifying the most promising research ideas, attracting brilliant individuals and teams of scientists, early in their careers, to PCF’s Research Enterprise. By channeling resources directly to the world’s top scientific minds, PCF is able to cut through red tape, speed scientific breakthroughs and deliver new treatments to prostate cancer patients.

Teal’s Real Ovarian Cancer Awareness
In the US, over 14,000 women will lose their battle against ovarian cancer each year. If treated in its early stages, the chances for 5-year survival are over 90%. However, due to a lack of a diagnostic test to detect the cancer in its early stages, the disease is often discovered in its latter stages when it is most deadly. First-line treatment for the disease has remained the same for over 30 years. As a result, funds are desperately needed to help devise a reliable diagnostic test for ovarian cancer and to aid in the research for the treatment of the disease.
For PCF funding to more than 2,000 research projects at more than 200 cancer centers.
