Party with a Purpose

American Association For Cancer Research.

John J Dougherty was the distinguished service award recipient – a well deserved honoree of the American Association For Cancer Research for 2018. AACR is the oldest and largest scientific organization in the world focusing on cancer research in the quest to cure and prevent cancer. 88 cents of every dollar is spent on meritorious cancer research.

I was honored to be approached by Beverly Fassler Goldberg in request to create a pop portrait to the real living Robin Hood , John Dougherty.

The mission of the American Association for Cancer Research is to prevent and cure cancer through research, education, communication, collaboration, funding, and advocacy. Through its programs and services, the AACR fosters research in cancer and related biomedical science; accelerates the dissemination of new research findings among scientists and others dedicated to the conquest of cancer; promotes science education and training; and advances the understanding of cancer etiology, prevention, diagnosis, and treatment throughout the world.
