The Massachusetts General Hospital Cancer Center aims to advance knowledge and rapidly translate discovery into exceptional, personalized cancer care for our patients. We've excelled in our mission thanks in large part to the generosity of our donors. As cancer research faces a challenging financial climate and decreased funding from important sources like the National Institutes of Health, your help has never been more critical.
Here's what your donation means for patients, families and the future of cancer medicine:
- You're supporting one of America's top cancer programs. Since our founding in 1988, U.S. News & World Report has repeatedly recognized the Cancer Center as one of the elite programs in the field. Among the criteria evaluated: reputation among peers, sophistication of technologies and quality of key patient services.
- You're investing in research at the forefront of cancer treatment. Leading scientists conduct pioneering research at the Cancer Center to uncover the fundamental causes of cancer and understand how to target the disease through precision surgery, focused radiation and smart drugs.
- You're bringing discoveries from bench to bedside. At the Cancer Center, clinicians in 24 disease-specific programs work collaboratively with laboratory researchers to accelerate findings and improve patient care.
While striving continuously for innovation, the Cancer Center delivers extraordinary treatment and support to every patient, every day. Your donation goes a long way in helping us sustain that level of excellence.
