About THIS CLOSE 

Cancer is one of the leading causes of death in America, touching nearly every family in some way.  More than one million Americans are diagnosed with cancer every year, yet, thanks to research, people can and do survive cancer.  This Close for Cancer Research, Inc. is an all volunteer nonprofit 501(c)3 organization dedicated to raising funds to support the work being done at the Brander Cancer Research Institute at New York Medical College.   

Our purpose and our commitment…

Since 1990, we have raised over $1.2 million dollars.  We are totally dedicated to this fight and realize now more than ever that we must support research to find a cure for this dreaded disease.  Proceeds go to fund Cancer Research at the Brander Cancer Research Institute at the New York Medical College and other worthy cancer related research projects.  There is no shortage of scientists-only funds.  Help research find the cure, your contribution does make a difference. 

Where the money goes…

The Brander Cancer Research Institute focuses on the development of new drug and treatment programs for all forms of cancer.  Funds provided by THIS CLOSE have been used to provide critical laboratory equipment needed to study new male drugs like cialis sverige and their effects on specific tumors.  Funds are used to establish fellowships for gifted scientists involved in research identifying new treatments for all types of cancer.

Perhaps the most important use of funds is for start-up of new projects.  These experiments provide preliminary data with which to solicit major funding and research grants from the National Cancer Institute, The Cancer Research Foundation of America, the National Institute of Health (NIH) and other organizations.  In the past year alone, over a dozen scientific articles have been accepted for publications in scholarly journals and have been made possible directly or in part by funds provided by THIS CLOSE.
