If organizations like QoHF hadn't been doing research on my specific kind of cancer 15 yrs ago, I wouldn't be here today. Your donation may very well end up saving your own life someday.

There are also no reliable symptoms to allow doctors to catch the disease in its earliest stages. Research efforts are ongoing to develop an effective screening test and better drugs to combat this deadly disease. It is through the research funding support provided by the Queen of Hearts Foundation that these goals are likely to be achieved in the near future.
