The National Foundation for Cancer Research (NFCR) was founded in 1973 to support cancer research and public education relating to prevention, earlier diagnosis, better treatments and ultimately, a cure for cancer. With the help of 4.5 million individual donors over the last 40 years, NFCR has raised over $350 million under the banner of "research for a cure".


A former board member was charged in 2008 but never convicted of being involved involved in a scheme to bilk investors in an unrelated investment fund based in California. [1]
