A severe funding gap remains for innovators who are developing promising technologies for fighting cancer. Most of these technologies will fail before they get a chance to prove their possibility – this is not always because the science is bad – but rather, because they lack the funding to succeed.
This funding breakdown, known as the “Valley of Death,” where great ideas go to die, fully impedes progress in reducing the cancer burden.
Music Beats Cancer wants to change this by leveraging the power and passion of people and music to help raise funds and awareness of promising cancer innovations that would otherwise linger in the Valley of Death.
Our mission is to increase the number of cancer-fighting technologies in the product development pipeline so that more solutions make it to those in need.
