Funding

A Record of Results!

The Eye Cancer Foundation has funded important projects leading to innovations in both the diagnosis and treatment of ocular tumors. In an effort to provide transparency, we are creating a list of RESULTS. We feel our record of results will earn your support for our future endeavors. When you donate to The Eye Cancer Foundation, we accept the responisiblity to be caretakers of your support, to make sure each we furnish you with the best possible result for each dollar, pound, euro, yen, ruble, etc

The Eye Cancer Foundation is an educational and supportive resource for eye cancer patients, their families, and physicians. Our mission is two-fold; one part focused on supporting multi-center, international research of new diagnostic treatments and the other to provide much needed patient education and support services. The Eye Cancer Foundation board understands that an eye cancer diagnosis can be overwhelming. It is for this reason that we have provided a web site for patients and their families. 

Though all our ongoing projects are well beyond our means, we have spent over $1,000,000 to fund select research projects, web sites and fellowship education around the world. We hope the ophthalmic oncology community, our patients and their families will join The Eye Cancer Foundation’s fundraising efforts. Together we can accomplish together what cannot be done alone.
