Let’s try this again. The John Estrella Foundation for Cancer Research is pleased to announce that the 17th Fundraiser to Fight Kidney Cancer has been rescheduled to Monday October 5th, 2020 at the Ferncroft Country Club in Middleton, MA. Due to the pandemic our event will be scaled down for your safety to include the John Estrella Memorial Golf Tournament and mail-in raffle. We are asking for your support, any size donation will help us to continue our mission.
Cancer patients are our most vulnerable population, yet research funding for cancer treatment is at its lowest level in a century. As we are trying to resume life, getting research back up to speed is no easy task. COVID-19 has put us on track to lose 50% of research funds by the end of 2020.
This is a truly urgent time to invest in kidney cancer research. New breakthroughs are waiting on us!
Funds raised will benefit the following programs:
- Research Grant – given to a local scientist working to treat kidney cancer
- Helping Hand Grants – cancer patients apply for items not covered by insurance
- Kidney Cancer Patient Update webinar – online resource for kidney cancer patients
The John Estrella Foundation for Cancer Research is a 100% volunteer-run, 501c3 nonprofit organization whose mission is to:
Extend the lives of kidney cancer patients by support, awareness & funding cutting edge research.
