THE MISSION OF HUNTSMAN CANCER INSTITUTE

HCI AT A GLANCE
WHY SUPPORT HUNTSMAN CANCER INSITUTE?
We imagine a time when cancer is no longer the leading cause of death for people under age 85. We envision a time when cancer is eradicated altogether. Thanks to research, many forms of cancer are now prevented entirely or diagnosed in their earliest, most treatable stages. Thanks to research, new treatments and interventions exist for advanced cancers.
By funding efforts to better understand the beginnings of cancer and more effectively treat cancer, Huntsman Cancer Institute (HCI) helps relieve suffering and improve the quality of life for cancer patients, survivors, and their families. HCF encourages cancer patients, caregivers and donors to come together in a myriad of ways to fight cancer individually and collectively through fundraising progr ams and community outreach.
