In just two years, we have raised funds to save the lives of 5 individuals who now lead normal lives.

 

Our Mission

The Cutting Edge Foundation funds surgical procedures and surgical research dedicated to advancing the art of surgery for the purpose of finding actual cures for chronic diseases. The focus of our funding efforts is to support the innovations of the Department of Surgery, University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC) in developing minimally invasive, highly precise robotic surgical techniques to treat some of the most challenging and life-threatening diseases, and in finding functional cures of chronic medical conditions. Our goal is to support these efforts and to make these advanced techniques available to those in need of such medical care, including patients with limited financial means.
