Caring For A Cure was founded in 2011 by the nurses of the Adult Hematology/Oncology and Bone Marrow Transplant program at Mass General with a goal to improve the journey of patients and families with cancer through research, resources, and awareness. In five years, we’ve raised close to $350,000. Please support Caring for a Cure so they can continue to make a difference for the patients and their families. Visit their Website for more information.
