The Cure Campaign

The Cure Campaign is a collective of young adults focused on promoting youth advocacy grounded in cancer research and education, while also supporting and enacting policies that support federal and state cancer research funding. We host several initiatives, some of which include the 50in50 Program, Cancer Understood: A Baseline to Experiences and Data, and the legislative work of our policy team.

Overall, there is a huge gap in knowledge between healthcare providers, medical scholars, and their respective patients. We hope this year’s research initiative Cancer Understood: A Baseline to Experiences & Data can serve as a foundational knowledge base to future research initiatives while highlighting the many and different ways people may experience cancer.
