Be A Gateway

Gateway for Cancer Research relies on the generosity of donors to fund early-phase cancer research accelerating practice-changing discoveries in cancer care and empowering patients to triumph over their disease.

Through your support, the organization can invest in clinical trials at the forefront of the cancer research and discovery process that are bringing innovations to the patients’ bedside. Gateway-funded trials enroll patients of all ages and at any stage of cancer, providing more access to practice-changing discoveries in cancer care.

Why Give to Gateway

I’m living proof that clinical trials works. Without it, I would not be here today.

Rhonda Kokot was diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia in 2001 and is now cancer-free thanks to a clinical trial. She achieved her incredible goal to run a half marathon in all 50 states so that more cancer patients could have access to clinical trials. While covering 655 miles total, she raised more than $100,000 in donations for Gateway—making it possible to fund more than 6,000 days of clinical trials for courageous patients worldwide.
