How it was Founded
In 1998, Barry Hoeven, founder of Westport Properties, was diagnosed with kidney cancer. As Barry battled this disease, he recognized the lack of funding for research to cure kidney and other underfunded cancers. To help increase the funding available, he founded the non-profit Kure It Cancer Research. Kure It’s mission is be the leader in granting funds to scientists researching underfunded cancers. Researchers receiving Kure It funds use this “seed money” to explore innovative research projects at top Comprehensive Cancer Centers.
