“You have cancer.” Next year, 1.6 million Americans will hear those words, and begin the fight of their lives. They will battle an incredibly complex disease, face lengthy treatments across multiple specialties, and navigate a system of care that can seem uncoordinated, confusing, and focused on everything but them.
We can do better. Transforming Cancer Care is a comprehensive and unprecedented effort to put the world’s best cancer science to work for patients and deliver a new, transformative model of care. Armed with the power of Stanford’s biomedical innovation, the compassion of our caregivers, and the support of visionary philanthropic partners like you, we’ll turn deadly diagnoses into conditions that can be treated, managed, transcended—or maybe, prevented altogether.
“This initiative is crucial in changing the way we fight cancer. For all the progress made over the past 50 years, there is still so much to be done—in discovery, in delivery of care, in making sure the best treatments are accessible and affordable to cancer patients everywhere. With the innovations Stanford Medicine is known for, and the support of our philanthropic partners, we will create a better way forward in cancer care. And we’ll share that path with the world.”
