WHO WE ARE
Our mission at Americans for Cures is to advocate for stem cell research and therapy development; and, ultimately, to improve the lives of patients and their families suffering from chronic disease and injury. We highlight the breakthroughs in stem cell research and therapy developments that have resulted from the passage of Proposition 71: the California Stem Cell Research and Cures Initiative.
Today, for the first time in history, stem cell research offers real hope to those whose suffering has previously been considered incurable. The road is long and challenging, but scientists and physician-scientists, empowered by the people of California, have accomplished much. The path to success is within our grasp, if we can sustain the advances of the scientists dedicated to stem cell therapies.
Real people. Real stories.
