Dream For The Cure is led by experts in the fields of cancer research and big data to identify the highest quality cancer research teams to accelerate the advancement of treatment and diagnostics.



Dream for the Cure is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization which was founded by Dr. Renee Hirte with the mission to fund research to discover the cure for cancer.     

Dream for the cure is currently donating to a team from the Mayo Clinic who is working in collaboration with Horton Works to employ big data analysis  to identify unique cell surface proteins on brain cancer cells to better understand how to selectively target tumors in patients based on their unique tumor "protein signature."


We are currently looking for donations to allow for the advancement of this clinical trial. 


Please consider making a generous tax-deductible donation to contribute to advancing the knowledge leading to the cure for cancer. Every little bit helps and is very much appreciated.
