Make a difference and fund critical research while you livestream.
Together we can nerf cancer for good.

The Cure Starts Now believes, as the experts do, that to cure cancer you have to focus on:

  • Cancers that are immune to treatment
  • Cancers that also affect children
  • Cancers with the highest death rate

We are truly a grass-roots effort and your participation helps further our mission of finding the Homerun Cure™ for all cancers.

100% of your fundraised donations (after credit card fees) will go directly towards cancer research to help kids battling brain cancer. All of our grants fund specific research while making our researchers accountable to results and innovation. If you'd like to make a direct donation, click here.

Meet our hero, LJ

There is nothing little about LJ Barnes’ energy, spirit, or his inspiration to others. Besides being a real-life superhero, LJ is kind and super affectionate. He enjoys playing with sticks, pretending to be a dinosaur, and building fortresses on Minecraft.

In February 2018, at the age of 2, LJ was diagnosed with DIPG, an aggressive and inoperable form of brain cancer. The symptoms first started appearing in November 2017 when he began slurring his speech and having issues controlling his arms and legs. LJ was too young to comprehend the magnitude of his diagnosis but his parents understood when he was given a life expectancy of 9-12 months and essentially no hope.

Thanks to a radical and promising phase 2 clinical trial funded by The Cure Starts Now, LJ is currently 3½ years post-diagnosis.
