Volunteer, donor and proponent for more research.
Every dollar helps our cause, but we also need additional volunteers who are willing to give us a few hours of their time on a committee for our annual fundraising event, letter writing campaign, or several other opportunities.
For the last 15 years, Hope For a Cure Foundation has devoted its energy to passionately advocating for researchers who need extra equipment to conduct their research. Find out how you can contribute to the future of a world without cancer through donations of money and/or time.

As a result of the individual donations - and the donation received from the Society for Marketing Professional Services (SMPS) who chose HFAC as their Charity Partner for a second year - the 2018 funds benefited Dr. Andrew B. Sharabi, a physician, researcher and professor at UCSD Medical Center. Pictured below is the much needed automated cell counter purchased for his lab.
With the option for a reusable slide and fluorescence capabilities—brightfield and two user-changeable fluorescence channels—the Invitrogen Countess II FL Automated Cell Counter can count cells, monitor fluorescent protein expression, and measure cell viability in as little as 10 seconds. The cell counter contains advanced auto-focusing and counting algorithms to allow the researcher to quickly and accurately identify and count cells within a population.
This is HFAC’s 20th equipment purchase since our formation in 2004. The Foundation purchases the equipment, which is then shipped to the researcher(s).
We are deeply honored that these donors have chosen Hope for a Cure Foundation and the needs of Dr. Sharabi's Lab.

Hope For a Cure Foundation has a unique mission. We use almost 100% of every donated dollar to purchase equipment for local cancer researchers/physicians in San Diego. We are all volunteers, and this is our passion.
We are currently accepting proposals in order to determine our next physician/scientist recipient. We appreciate your interest and support and will publish that information soon. Stay tuned!
