Hi Feng. The National Cancer Institute is a part of the federal government. They have been receiving $ 4.8 BILLION ($ 4,800,000,000.00) per year for research from tax payers (as part of the federal budget). See the link below.

This number does not include private funding and charitable donations to private cancer research charities. Additional research dollars may be spent by biomedical research companies and/or the pharmaceutical industry.

Best wishes and good luck.
