Cancer Advocacy Groups
Every patient deserves access to the very best modern medicine has to offer.
Cure Forward and non-profit organizations that represent patients share a commitment to expanding oncology patient participation in clinical trials. We understand that the current process of finding a clinical trial is too difficult; inclusion/exclusion criteria are complex; and searching takes too much time.
Together, we are focused on helping alleviate the burden of finding a clinical trial that is right for individual patients, with individual profiles and needs. Cure Forward has developed a unique, personalized, end-to-end solution designed to cover the entire patient journey, from the initial effort of finding clinical trial options to enrollment in a suitable trial.
Our Clinical Trial Navigators will work directly with patients and care teams to build robust profiles – inclusive of medical information, personal preferences, and molecular profiles (when applicable) – to ensure we can match them with the most relevant and active clinical research trials.
Cure Forward partners with cancer advocacy groups to advance clinical research and help make leading edge cancer treatment options available to all. If your organization is interested in joining our mission to provide as many resources as possible to patients in need, please reach out to us at [email protected].
We are honored to work with the following nonprofit organizations to provide as many options to patients in need.
Fight Colorectal Cancer is the leading patient empowerment group in colorectal cancer and an active participant in cancer research and advocacy on the Hill. We’ve grown to become an organization known for our colorectal cancer awareness, advocacy, patient education and research programs. We envision victory over colon and rectal cancers. We raise our voice to empower and activate a community of patients, fighters and champions to push for better policies and to support research, education and awareness for all those touched by this disease. Our awareness campaign, One Million Strong, is a unifying force highlighting the stories and strength of over 1 million colorectal cancer survivors and their families coast to coast.

The Ovarian Cancer Research Fund Alliance is a powerful voice for everyone touched by ovarian cancer. We connect survivors, women at risk, caregivers and health providers with the information and resources they need. We ensure that ovarian cancer is a priority for lawmakers and agencies in Washington, DC, and throughout the country. Our online communities connect tens of thousands of women and men affected by ovarian cancer, helping them find resources and share information about this disease. We educate the public about ovarian cancer through media outreach, public service announcements, social media and resources such as our fact sheets and symptom cards. Our 65 Partner Members work in tandem with the Alliance to educate their communities, raise funds for research and take action on behalf of women with ovarian cancer.

The Ocular Melanoma Foundation (OMF) is the leading research and patient support organization focused on eye cancer. OMF was established by Dr. Robert Allen, a renowned eye surgeon who was diagnosed with ocular melanoma (OM), a rare eye cancer diagnosed in 2,000 adults in the U.S. annually. Today, OMF is the #1 destination for uveal melanoma information online and a leading provider of patient education and support programs, including novel assistance programs for patient travel and ocular prosthetics. The ‘Eye Am Not Alone’ patient retreat is the largest gathering of OM patients and caregivers in the world and OMF has raised over a million dollars towards the fight against eye cancer while partnering closely with the American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) and the Rare Cancer Research Foundation (RCRF) to fund groundbreaking cancer research.

NormaLeah Ovarian Cancer Foundation was established to create public awareness, promote early detection, and support research for Ovarian Cancer. Our ultimate goal is to have ovarian cancer screening become a routine part of a woman’s annual gynecological exam. The Foundation honors the memory of two sisters, Norma Yecies Shagrin and Leah Yecies Hantman whose lives were cut short by this deadly disease.
