CVHLA and Cancer Research Society turned your $120k into $480k of Canadian Research

In 2018 the CVHLA formed a partnership with the Cancer Research Society (CRS) that has turned our $120,000 of research money into $480,000 of Canadian Research over the last 3 years. 

  • $240,000 of Canadian VHL research in 2020

    • Your CVHLA donations of $60,000 were matched by the Cancer Research Society (CRS) to create a $120,000 research grant. This was awarded to Dr. Sandra Turcotte, University of Moncton

    • In total 4 applications for the VHL Research Grant were received

    • A second grant of $120,000 was awarded to a second group by the CRS, totaling $240,000 in VHL research for 2020.

  • $240,000 of Canadian VHL research in 2018

    • Your CVHLA donations of $60,000 were matched by the CRS to create a $120,000 research grant that was awarded to Dr. Najafabadi McGill University. The final report from Dr. Najafabadi is normally due at the end of September 2020, however, due to the pandemic, the completion of research projects has been extended to September 2021. The 2019 update on this project can be seen below.

    • In total 12 applications for the VHL Research Grant were received in 2018

    • A second grant of $120,000 was awarded to a second group by the CRS, totaling $240,000 in VHL research for 2018.

The Canadian von Hippel-Lindau Alliance has been working hard to raise awareness of VHL and to raise Canadian funds.  This allows the organization to source and invest in Canadian research for a cure.  Over 93% of all funds donated to the Canadian VHL Alliance go directly to research and all donations receive a Canadian charitable donation tax receipt.

 

Our Board of Directors is made up entirely of volunteers who either have VHL or have close friends or family members who suffer from this disease.

 

We believe that it is important that you know where your donation is going and how it is helping your friends and families who suffer from von Hippel-Lindau disease.
