Kure It was started in Newport Beach about 10 years ago by Barry Hoeven, the founder and CEO of Irvine-based Westport Properties and US Storage. Noting there was little funding for research, Hoeven, who was battling kidney cancer, used his Newport business connections to create Kure It and bridge the underfunded cancer research gap. To date, Kure It has granted eleven million dollars in direct funds to the comprehensive cancer centers at UCI, UCLA, USC and City of Hope.
