Supported Charities

We’ve funded more than 40 cancer charities around the world. We went live in April 2009 and first donations were received the same day that went to charities. Half of our donors upgrade to donations of $9.99 and even $99.99 per track.

Artists Supporting

Over 100 songs have been recorded by artists from around the world, including Suzanne Vega, Ben E. King, Tom Chapin, Randy Brecker, Matt White, John Pizzarelli and David Broza. This community of contributors created historically significant music, which is only available through Pioneers For A Cure. All proceeds go to artist-selected cancer charities.

Free “Am Yisrael Chai” Single

Pioneers For A Cure released the single “Am Yisrael Chai,” a dynamic and beautiful mix of the traditional melody with the famous version written by Rabbi Shlomo Carlebach. Enjoy it for free!

As physicians and oncologists, we are facing challenging decisions. I was asked by @TheCancerLetter to weigh in on immunotherapy in #COVIDnCancer. We rely on each other for guidance in the absence of robust data. Here are my thoughts- I welcome yours!

Named to .@NJBiz "Health Care Power 50," these trailblazers recognized for the new paths they're forging: our Exec. VP & Chief Corp. Affairs Officer @MichelleneEsq; @RWJBarnabas Corp. Board Member Robert Johnson; @RWJUH LGBT Health Navigator Jackie Baras.
