I was recently asked to review a site called cureLauncher.com. It’s an online community that raises money for breast cancer cures and medical research. The best description, as a whole, was worded by the company themselves:
Like a Kickstarter for cancer treatments.
If you have no idea what Kickstarter is, you are not alone. Personally, I’ve known about it for a while. It’s a site where you can go to share your ideas for inventions or projects with the community and people will donate monies to you to make your idea a reality. cureLauncher.com is the same thing, except that it is strictly for breast cancer cures and medical research related to breast cancer.
They put the power of funding tomorrow’s cures in your hands today.
They also connect cancer patients to FREE lifesaving clinical trials. There are 7,500 breast cancer trial locations across the US, so finding one close to you is not only possible, but very likely. (The one that was by me was sponsored by Mayo Clinic, so that’s comforting to know that such a reputable place was a part of this.)
You can donate to any of the projects for research or cures that you want. You’ll also be glad to know that 90% of your donation goes directly to new cancer treatments.
I know what you’re thinking...How do I know that my money is being used properly? Luckily, that’s the first question on the faq page. You can check that out here. It says:
These projects, and the inventors themselves, have undergone validation and site reviews by independent NIH experts, who are some of the best medical scientists in the world. cureLauncher researchers report every month on:
- How they are using their funding.
- What they are learning in the course of their research.
- And how they apply this new information to their products and devices..
Our researchers report on their medical research in easily understood language that is not cloaked in medical jargon.
Need help with something? No problem...I immediately found out that there is live chat available for you 24 hours a day/7 days a week, so no worries. I spoke with John Williams, who was super nice, helpful and knowledgeable.
This site is wonderful! I love that you can donate to the various breast cancer research and treatment projects, and that you can find clinical trials if you need such treatments. The 24/7 live chat is such a huge gold star in my book! That’s hard to find! Want to check them out for yourself? Just go to cureLauncher.com.
