Over the past 10 years, the JCCF's annual fundraiser has raised nearly $4 million for highest priority cancer research at UCLA.

The JCCF is the single-most important vehicle for raising private funds for cancer research at UCLA, and supports a number of high-priority cancer research efforts focused on converting laboratory discoveries into more effective therapies for cancer patients. For the 6th consecutive year, UCLA's Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer Center (JCCC) is rated as one of the nation's top 10 cancer centers and 'best in the west' by U.S. News & World Report. The JCCC's dedicated researchers are clearly recognized as international leaders in the discovery of new and better ways to prevent, detect, and treat cancer.
