THE STORY:

Imagine A Pill That Kills Cancer Cells

Benefiting: Dr. Yim’s life saving cancer research at the City of Hope

Can you imagine looking back on your life and saying that you helped fund a cure for cancer?   Imagine the millions of lives saved including your loved ones, children and grandchildren.

What if I told you that a brilliant team led by Dr. John Yim has discovered a compound found in a Chinese root which activates a protein that causes cancer cells to kill themselves and makes them more susceptible to our immune system?  "Breast Cancer, Lung Cancer,  Ovarian Cancer, Endometrial Cancer, and Gastric Cancer are initially the ones we personally are finding very exciting results."

Now that's something to invest in and fund! 

Dr. Yim needs funding to conduct initial studies before he can proceed with FDA Phase I Clinical Testing.  These studies require the making of a large quantity of pills, which can be uniquely made at City of Hope facilities.  These studies will include dosage testing.  

The funding needed is $275,000.  That is what we are aiming to raise, with your help.  And, the City of Hope will match that with in-kind funding.

Help us raise funds for Dr. Yim's groundbreaking research and look back knowing you helped a great cause that could change the world!
