Under One Umbrella 2022

In March 2022, we came back together—in person—for a very special event featuring the immeasurably talented Carrie Underwood at the Bing Concert Hall on the Stanford campus. In addition to the remarkable musical performance, we heard from inspiring patients and faculty about the extraordinary advances being made at the Stanford Women’s Cancer Center—advances that are changing women’s lives every day and would not be possible without the ongoing support of the Under One Umbrella community.

You can help support the Under One Umbrella - Women’s Cancer Innovation Awards by making a gift online. If you would like to speak to someone directly about making a gift contact  Michele Thompson, Cancer Specialist Fundraiser in Stanford’s Office of Medical Center Development via email at

Follow “Under One Umbrella – Friends of the Stanford Women’s Cancer Center” on Facebook for news and updates throughout the year.

Women, Living with Cancer is a short film directed by Stanford Women's Cancer Center Director Jonathan Berek, MD, MMSc, that was featured during the event. It shares thoughtful perspectives from patients and the impact of compassionate, comprehensive care.
