Accelerating Cancer Research into Cures Curebound is a 501c3 that brings the top cancer research institutions in San Diego together in a collaborative effort to accelerate cancer research into cures.

Founded with a deeply held belief that cures are possible, our mission and vision is to accelerate cures in our lifetime, so that the next generation doesn’t have to experience a cancer diagnosis in the frightening way that too many of us do now. We believe that the next decade will be critical to the development of sophisticated, individualized cancer treatment and the largest opportunity ever seen to advance the way we treat and ultimately cure cancer. With all its unique resources, San Diego is poised to become a global hub of cancer research and the city where cures begin. Targeting areas of research where the greatest opportunities exist, Curebound is committed to investing $100 million into collaborative cancer.

We take our Dyin 2 Live Dreams recipients backstage and behind the scenes at these events to meet their favorite bands, artists, athletes, and celebrities. Meet-and-greets, signings, watching their favorite bands side stage, backstage access, media interviews, photo ops, and more are all apart of the VIP Experience! Our Dyin 2 Live Dreams recipients walk away from the experience with the will and determination to continue in their fight against cancer. We want to show them that life is worth fighting for and that no one fights alone.

Ella is not only facing another cancer battle herself, but now fighting alongside her daddy! Christian was diagnosed with a bone cancer called Multiple Myeloma. He is recovering from a stem cell transplant currently and will remain in ongoing treatment. HOFF FAMILY NEEDS! With the unfolding uncertainties, providing and caring for the family is a concern.

Precision Medicine for All - At SOTERIA, we support a superior approach to cancer treatment, where the patient is at the center of globally curated resources to implement precision medicine and generate better outcomes despite geographic location, treating institution, or socioeconomic status. The founders and supporters of SOTERIA are personally familiar with a cancer diagnosis and believe that every cancer patient deserves access to the best care. SOTERIA challenges the one-size-fits-all approach to cancer treatment by leveraging the power of an individual's data to identify personalized, targeted treatment plans and provides access to the most relevant advanced technology and treatment options from the convenience of your own home. Advancements in genomics have enabled personalized, targeted cancer therapy, leading to better outcomes. As medicine becomes more multi-modal, no one individual or institution can be the leading expert in all areas., nor can we rely on existing institutions to lead this effort because there is no economic incentive. SOTERIA is a neutral entity that is required to synthesize medical & scientific experts to bridge the gap to navigate the complexities of precision medicine and help alleviate patient and physician burden to generate better outcomes.
