ABOUT US

The Jonsson Cancer Center Foundation (JCCF) was founded in 1945 by a group of volunteers dedicated to cancer research at UCLA. Their idea, using funds raised from private sources to invest in the work of promising young cancer researchers, resulted in the Seed Grant Program, which has helped the Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer Center break new ground in the quest to defeat cancer.

Although seed grants remain an important part of our mission, the Foundation today also supports numerous high-priority and multi-disciplinary cancer research efforts focused on rapidly translating discoveries made in the laboratory into improved screening, treatment and prevention.  READ MORE...

After meeting with two different oncologists at two different hospitals, I was more scared than ever.  My last stop was meeting  Dr. Slamon at UCLA.  I remember feeling like I was 'home' while waiting for him in the exam room, but I wasn't sure why.  He came in, introduced himself, and gave me a 20 minute examination before talking about anything.
