Robert H. Lurie Comprehensive Cancer Center
The H Foundation quickly knew that the Robert H. Lurie Comprehensive Cancer Center team was the right place to donate their fundraising money to with when they first met with the Center team in early 2002. The Center is a perfect match for The H Foundation because not only is the Center highly-rated, but it employs a team of professionals that is highly dedicated to our cause—curing cancer. The H Foundation continues to be impressed that the Cancer Centerworks on the concept of a “team” approach that combines research, education, and patient care all in one. The Cancer Center and The H Foundation truly believe that Together, We Can Make a Difference.

Planting the Seeds
All monies raised by The H Foundation go directly to Basic Science Cancer Research. This allows scientists to pursue novel ideas to detect cancer earlier and with greater precision. These ideas are then built into a portfolio of research knowledge to compete for grants from other foundations. This "seed money" for basic research leads to millions of dollars from additional private funding allowing the center to continue the fight to cure cancer.
