Cancer Research Institute
If I were given $20,000 and six months of time, I would donate to the Cancer Research Institute. I've known a few people who have died of cancer and when i was a senior in high school my mom was diagnosed with breast cancer. Luckily the doctors caught it fast enough and were able to cure her before it ever spread. However, during the time she was diagnosed with it, it was a really hard time for me and I don't think anyone should ever have to go through anything as painstaking as this.
The Cancer Research Institute has made some huge steps towards preventing cancer. The first vaccine for cervical cancer was founded by a CRI scientist and the CRI donated 10.5 million dollars to 298 investigators at 89 institutions in 15 countries and 22 states.
