  • The SHEPHERD Foundation is SHEPHERD’s sister 501(c)3, which uses public donations to support scientific research and understanding for every form of rare cancer. We’re bringing rare cancer patients and research foundations together in a unified effort to attack rare cancer from every angle. Because almost everyone is affected by cancer, directly or indirectly, we’re giving everyone a stake in treating it.

  • Whether you’re an individual or an institution, we are all invested. Every dollar is your decision to join us in speeding the path to life-empowering treatment.We’ve structured the SHEPHERD Foundation so that every dollar goes directly to the development of treatments. No more blind giving hoping your hard earned money makes a difference, at the SHEPHERD Foundation, your money has momentum.  It’s not just a charitable contribution, it’s a tangible involvement.

270 million CANCER DIAGNOSES IN AN AVERAGE LIFETIME. 127 million OF THOSE WILL BE RARE
