Circles of Hope

This program supports pilot studies to help jump-start potentially promising clinical drug trials.

  • Each Circle is comprised of 10 individuals or couples who contribute $2,500 for two years to underwrite a specific study/drug trial for $25,000.
  • Ruben Mesa, director of the Mays Cancer Center, compiles the top research projects needing funding, selects the top three, and then submits them to the Circle to select the one they wish to fund.
  • The Mays Cancer center will match every $25,000 raised by Circle members, for a total of $50,000 in pilot study research.

For more information please contact the SA Cancer Council at 210-450-5571 or Beverly Koehn.
