Tower Cancer Research Foundation was established in 1996 by a driven group of physicians, patients, and volunteers with a personal stake in cancer to fund high impact research and survivorship support programs.
Our focus is on Southern California, the hub for some of the
world’s leading research insitutions, and our founding physicians.
Our programs and funding are designed to maximize impact beyond the initial investment— so they not only benefit researchers, patients and families today, they have the potential to lead to even greater impact tomorrow, transforming lives anywhere.
Inspired by the most promising science, we’re creating outsized impact.
