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 female leaders in cancer research. Our goal? To ensure
the unique perspective of women remains a powerful and growing force in cancer research.
ResearcHERS of ResearcHERS: Women Fighting Cancer of Illinois is bringing together our community’s most
influential female leaders 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. While the American Cancer Society has funded 49 scientists who have gone
on to become Nobel Laureates, none of them has been a woman...yet. That’s why we’re
calling on our community’s most influential female leaders to become ResearcHERS Ambassadors,
leaders committed to fundraising in support of women-led cancer research.
Register yourself or nominate someone you know - and help fuel the future of
women in cancer research today.

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.
