Texans for Cures is a 501(c)3 non-profit based in Austin, Texas. We advocate for stem cell research, regenerative medicine and specific immunotherapy strategies for the treatment of cancer, heart disease, and other terminal illnesses.
We are also a granting organization, which means that when we make donations to major medical institutions from funds we’ve collected, 100% goes towards research and not to indirect costs.
Our team is comprised of experts from leading US cancer treatment and research institutions. Using a collaborative approach, TFC (Texans for Cures) brings together leaders in many disciplines to develop innovative and comprehensive cancer treatment strategies that leverage the power of the human immune system.
Currently, we are raising money to fund clinical work in very poor prognosis pediatric brain tumors. There are no viable therapies for these patients, and treatment options are limited exclusively to experimental clinical trials. This trial focuses on immunotherapeutic strategies that are very specific, eradicating the tumor without harming any other part of the patient. Both government and industrial funding for experimental phase I trials are very limited, which is why we need your help.
