    Mission Statement

    American Cancer Research Center and Foundation is a national, not-for-profit research institute dedicated to supporting research concerning the prevention and control of cancer and other chronic diseases such as aging. Other areas of focus include improving patient access to cancer treatment and health and wellness education.

  • History:
  • ACRCF History:

    The American Cancer Research Center and Foundation (ACRCF) began in November 2004 with a mission to fund promising cancer research. Our focus is in the areas of prevention and control of cancer and other chronic diseases. Each year we are able to grant more money for promising research around the country at various cancer institutions including the University of Texas Health Science Center, University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences, Fox Chase Cancer Center and the Abramson Cancer Center at the University of Pennsylvania.
    Our community outreach has included adopting many Title I science classrooms, writing grants to obtain fitness equipment for Title I schools, and volunteering on school district Health Advisory Councils which shape policy concerning fitness, nutrition and wellness for the entire districts.
    However, ACRCF is most proud of our Rides for Cancer Treatment program which started in January 2010. ACRCF provides one van with a full-time driver to pick up and deliver indigent San Antonio residents to their cancer treatment and return them safely home in a timely manner, free of charge. We provided over 1000 rides our first year and helped so many patients that would not have been able to continue their cancer treatment. This program is extremely successful and continues to run at capacity.
