One out of every five deaths in America is from
cancer. And perhaps saddest of all, cancer causes more deaths in
children between the ages of 1 and 14 years than any other disease.
The National Cancer Center was founded by Dr.
J. Ernest Ayre in 1953 as a non-profit organization committed
to research and education
Dr. J. Ernest Ayre was a
pioneer in refining and promoting the Pap test for women. The Pap
test has been the
major factor in reducing deaths from cervical cancer by 70%. Dr.
Ayre was also one of the first researchers to recognize the enormous
potential of Interferon for cancer treatment.
Dr. Ayre's dedication and accomplishments have been the standard
for the work we have carried forward for over 50 years. We are currently assisting researchers at a number of universities including Duke Univ, Yale Univ, Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, John Hopkins University, and Children's Hospital of Philadelphia.
The focus of National Cancer Center is two-fold:
research and education
We are dedicated to the task of seeking out and providing financial
support to researchers undertaking thorough, innovative, and promising
studies on topics related to conquering cancer.
The National Cancer Center also educates Americans
on how they can reduce their risk of cancer. Over the past few
distributed millions of education and prevention packets on such
topics as breast, lung, prostate, and colorectal cancer, as well
as needle biopsy aspiration. Other areas of our work include mailing
thousands of information packets designed to help prevent skin
cancer during summer months.
We are committed to finding a cure.
We need your help to fund cancer research projects and cutting
edge treatments. With your support and the work of dedicated scientists
and doctors a cure can't be far away.
