     The National Foundation for Cancer Research
     The National Foundation for Cancer Research (NFCR) was founded in 1973 to
 support cancer research from a scientific perspective.  NFCR research at both
 the cellular and molecular levels is leading to improved prevention, earlier
 diagnosis, new treatments, and eventually a cure for cancer.  By supporting
 the best ideas of the best minds and by facilitating collaboration among all
 researchers, advances in one field contribute to discoveries in another.  This
 is what NFCR's "Laboratory Without Walls" makes possible.  For more
