Expect Miracles Foundation focuses on a CURE and CARE strategy where we work to help cancer patients before, during, and after cancer treatment.

For the CARE portion, and so that our supporters have the greatest impact with their generosity, we fund leading research addressing four of the greatest challenges in cancer science:
-Early detection
-Real-time prognosis
-Drug-resistant cancer
-Metastatic cancer

We are proud to support two collaborative research centers that share the goal of providing hope for patients by accelerating the pace of translating scientific discoveries into new therapies: The Robert and Renée Belfer Center for Applied Cancer Science at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Boston, MA The Center for Experimental Therapeutics at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York, NY.

But at the same time, we get it - cancer isn’t free. So for the CURE portion of our mission, we are proud to help people deal with the financial toxicity caused by cancer through our direct financial assistance program, The Samfund.

YOU get to decide where your fundraising goes! 

As a member of the Expect Miracles Foundation's racing team you can designate your fundraising to any of the following: 

  •  - Area of Greatest Need
  • - Expect Miracles' cancer research fund at Dana-Farber

  • - Expect Miracles' cancer research fund at Memorial Sloan Kettering

  • - The Samfund for Young Adult Cancer Survivors

  • - OR you can allocate a percentage to multiple programs
