Expect Miracles Foundation (EMF) rallies the financial services industry and beyond to invest in life-saving cancer research while advancing the financial and emotional health of people impacted by cancer.
With the loyal support of so many generous companies and people, from leading financial services companies to start-ups, senior executives to young adults, corporate foundations to family trusts, with our three funds we have awarded over $20 million in cancer research and financial assistance grants.
The Expect Miracles Discovery Fund invests in the Robert and Renée Belfer Center for Applied Cancer Science, a collaborative research center at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Boston, MA. The Belfer Center aims to accelerate the discovery and development of the next generation of targeted and immune-based therapies while integrating academic and industry research to drive clinical trials and improve patients’ lives.
The Expect Miracles Research Fund supports The Center for Experimental Therapeutics at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York City, a critical research collaborative working to hasten the time it takes to get new, more effective and less toxic therapies to cancer patients. The fund specifically supports the research of The Daniel Heller, PhD Research Lab which develops nanotechnologies to treat metastatic cancers and to detect disease at early stages.
Expect Miracles Foundation’s SAMFund provides critical financial resources to young adult cancer survivors twice a year through grants in two categories: Financial Assistance Grants and Family Building Grants. SAMFund grants were first awarded in 2005 in response to the higher rates of financial toxicity among young adult survivors compared to other age groups and the lack of dedicated resources specifically for this population.
