Thanks to the generosity of our donors and supporters, we’re funding lifesaving research in lymphoma, from basic biology to prevention to treatment and to survivorship. And with continued support, this scientific research will continue.
Our research funding focuses on an organization CCF has funded from its inception in 2010 – The International Lymphoma Radiation Oncology Group (ILROG).
Last year the Connecticut Sports Foundation provided over $125,000 dollars to cancer research.
Around the World
We believe that where a person lives shouldn’t determine if they live. ILROG worldwide is a forum to further the understanding of radiotherapy in the treatment of lymphoma in children and adults around the globe.
Every major cancer hospital in the United States is a member of ILROG. The membership base includes over 750 Radiation Oncologists from 40 different countries.
ILROG’s accomplishments would not have been possible without the initial support of the Connecticut Cancer Foundation and the trust we had in our combined goals to improve the care of lymphoma patients worldwide.
The organization is led and Chaired by Dr. Yahalom of Memorial Sloan Kettering, the physician who saved Connecticut Cancer Foundation founder, John Ellis’ life 30 years ago.
