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.
Huntsman Cancer Foundation helps Huntsman Cancer Institute relieve suffering and improve quality of life for patients, survivors, and their families. Our most promising new research is often seeded by the collective gifts of many coming together to support an important research project. Patients and their families can join us in this effort. They may donate funds directed toward better understanding and treating a type of cancer that’s personally affected them most.

Using advanced genetics to fight and forestall cancer is the core of everything we do at Huntsman Cancer Institute. We have the largest genetic database on earth that combines family histories with health records. And this has helped us discover more inherited cancer genes than any other cancer center in the world. Genes for colon cancer, breast cancer, ovarian cancer, melanoma, paraganglioma, and neurofibromatosis.
Scientific discoveries made at Huntsman Cancer Institute are making a big impact in the way cancer is diagnosed and treated. And now, in many cases, inherited cancers can be detected early, or even prevented before they start.
