Duke Cancer Institute

The Duke Cancer Fund.

It’s about time.

A cure for cancer. It’s a phrase heard so often it dulls the incredible truth: this is a realizable goal.

We are the researchers, doctors, and caregivers of the Duke Cancer Institute (DCI). DCI scientists and physicians work closely together to translate discoveries into better treatments for patients with all types of cancer, at Duke and beyond. To keep our momentum going, we need your help. We must rely on you now, more than ever, as federal research funding has decreased.

We see precious time slip away from patients while exciting discoveries wait for funding … promising compounds wait for testing … new drugs wait for approval.

The patient’s cancer does not wait.

Neither can we. Our answer is the Duke Cancer Fund. When you give to this fund, you provide us with resources we can apply quickly and dramatically to fund our most important work:

  • Removing regulatory roadblocks between novel therapies and patients.
  • Funding frontier research and innovative treatments.
  • Enabling leading-edge cancer surgeries and procedures.
  • Attracting and energizing the brightest young researchers.

Best of all, your donation will foster working partnerships between our patients and our scientists, pushing back the frontiers of cancer research while giving patients the gift of another cherished month, another treasured season, another priceless year.

You’ll find remarkable stories everywhere you look at the DCI. As you read about these ground-breaking discoveries, innovative treatments and courageous lives, don’t be surprised if you feel a restless energy and a rising determination.

All of us at the DCI earnestly invite you to consider a philanthropic partnership with us.

We excitedly—and impatiently—await your answer.
