ResearcHERS: Women Fighting Cancer of Illinois
Women make invaluable contributions to cancer research, yet they’re consistently underrepresented in research leadership. The ResearcHERS campaign wants to change that. Together, we can sustain women-led cancer research, bolster the careers of women researchers, and support a more robust pipeline of those leaders in cancer research. Our goal? To ensure the unique perspective of women remains a powerful and growing force in cancer research.
ResearcHERS is bringing together our community’s most influential leaders who identify as women to raise funds to fuel the work of women scientists. And we need women like you to join the movement.

ResearcHERS gives women an opportunity to fundraise for women-led cancer research, but it’s more than a fundraising program. ResearcHERS is a sisterhood of purpose determined to sustain women-led cancer research and recognize the female trailblazers in the field. The American Cancer Society has funded 50 researchers who have gone on to receive the Nobel Prize, and in 2022, Dr. Carolyn Bertozzi became the first woman ACS has funded to be awarded the Nobel Prize in Chemistry. Join the ResearcHERS movement and help us fuel the future of women-led cancer research. Register yourself or nominate someone you know - and help fuel the future of women in cancer research today.Nominate an Ambassador
Would you like to lead the team or join the team?
This isn’t what I wanted.
Cancer has touched all of us in some way. And we want to stop this disease in its tracks. We'll spend the next few weeks fundraising for the American Cancer Society. Then, on the day of the event, we'll honor the lives lost to cancer, celebrate survivors, and support the caregivers who so selflessly help others.
Together, we'll be a part of making a difference in this important cause.
