Extraordinary Times Call for Extraordinary Measures

COVID-19 significantly disrupted patient access to clinical trials—research that can make a world of difference for those facing cancer. In response to this long-term trend, Gateway launched an innovative new funding program to support “decentralized” clinical studies that bring trials to the doorsteps of cancer patients by leveraging technology and at-home care.

Extraordinary Measures, an urgent new fundraising campaign unlike any we have ever conducted in our nearly 30-year history, will advance this new grant program, helping to ensure all those facing cancer continue to receive potentially lifesaving therapies.
