Expanding evidence-based cancer treatment options

Cancer treatment optionsExpanding evidence-based cancer treatment options

The Anticancer Fund is a private foundation providing research-based information on cancer therapies and selectively funding the development of promising therapies.


The Anticancer Fund investigates the information on cancer therapies for evidence, so that evidence-based treatment choices can be made. We help patients to structure and absorb the complex nature of the information on registered, complementary or alternative therapies.

The Anticancer Fund is continuously looking for cancer therapies that have never been thoroughly examined and might finance the treatments that can be deemed promising based on measurable results.

The Anticancer Fund website provides the same research-based information in an adapted language for patients and their relatives, and for professionals so that it can be used to discuss treatment options. The Anticancer Fund team is independent and open-minded, is supported by a high level advisory board, is collaborating with international organizations (ESMO, CAM-CANCER) and consults reliable sources (NCI, MSKcc, a.o.). The Anticancer Fund does not provide medical advice and our website does not replace a medical consultation.

We are deeply saddened to announce that our friend and colleague, Dr Holbrook Kohrt, has passed away. We will continue his fight against cancer through the Holbrook Kidd Kohrt Cancer Immunotherapy Fund.
