Mission Statement

CuresNow, a non-profit organization, is fighting for the lives of millions of Americans through a campaign of mass education in ethical scientific research in the advancement of Regenerative Medicine, the most promising medical technology to date for unlocking the cures to some of our most debilitating diseases. Currently more than 130 million American adults and children suffer from heart disease, cancer, diabetes, Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, ALS, macular degeneration, spinal cord injury, MS, lupus, neurological diseases, auto-immune disease and a myriad of other life-threatening conditions. Thanks to the promise of Regenerative Medicine, these people soon may have the opportunity to live full and healthy lives. CuresNow is comprised of leaders in the scientific, health, education, business and entertainment communities, and above all, the mothers, fathers, brothers, sisters, sons, and daughters of those loved ones who are sick and suffering. CuresNow has an advisory board of many of the world's leading scientists and bioethicists and is committed to working in partnership with the scientific community to illuminate and expand the public's understanding of this exciting new technology, and of its potential. CuresNow, together with 40 Nobel Laureates, Former President Gerald Ford, Former President Jimmy Carter, Former President William Clinton, and Former First Lady Nancy Reagan, as well as 125 U.S. Medical Schools, the Coalition for the Advancement of Medical Research and The National Academies, is dedicated to promoting the rapid, responsible, and ethical progress of Regenerative Medicine. CuresNow firmly opposes reproductive cloning, but supports scientific research to continue in a safe, regulated manner. Regenerative Medicine, stem cell research and somatic cell nuclear transfer (SCNT), also known as therapeutic cloning, hold the promise to life-saving cures for so many people -- now, and for generations to come.

Description

CuresNow is a fully functioning non-profit organization dedicated to educating people across the nation about stem cell research and the hope that somatic cell nuclear transfer (SCNT) holds for the millions of Americans with incurable diseases.
