Dan Nelson was diagnosed with stage IV brain cancer in 2016. As his caregiver, Dan's wife, Dianne, has been at his side throughout. She shares her perspective, which reveals the power of what it means to be a cancer caregiver and the hope that this role can bring to a loved one who receives a life-changing cancer diagnosis.
Patient and Huntsman Hero Dan Nelson set out to ride the 30-mile segment of the Huntsman 140 in spite of a terminal brain cancer diagnosis. When Dan wasn't sure he could make it up the last hill, his #DanStrong team of family and friends was there to push him to the top. In the hardest of times, Dan and his wife Dianne have never been alone.

At Huntsman Cancer Institute, our donors are inspired to give, and we are inspired by our donors. Their giving will seed the next new breakthroughs in cancer research, leading to life-saving treatments and, ultimately, eradicating cancer altogether.
The HCI community shares memories of our founder.
"One thing is for sure: cancer will affect your life... and the only way we're going to find a cure is by supporting research."
Each year, hundreds of cyclists hit the road between Delta and Salt Lake City, Utah. Many ride 25 miles, a few ride the full 140. All ride to find a cure for cancer. Now in its sixth year, the Huntsman 140 event is a fundraiser to support cancer research at Huntsman Cancer Institute (HCI). The 2016 goal is $525,000.
