October 15, 2019

October 1 – 31 is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.  Many will get involved in promoting awareness by wearing pink, the ubiquitous color symbolizing the cause.  I have a favor to ask.

Certainly, wear pink!  The color has come to symbolize solidarity and unity in the drive to improve outcomes for people with breast cancer.  BUT, please also do your homework.  Ask vendors selling pink swag what percentage of the proceeds of the sale will actually reach cancer research.  And if you want to advance the field of breast cancer prevention, treatment, and outcomes, please donate directly to cancer research.  As important, when you are deciding where to give your hard-earned funds, look for a charity that has an appropriate balance between overhead costs (i.e., the amount a charity takes off the top of the donation to cover administrative and marketing expenses) and the amount of your gift that actually reaches the research programs.  One-hundred-percent of the funds Huntsman Cancer Foundation receives for breast cancer programs is given to that purpose, with no amounts withheld for administrative, marketing, or fundraising expenses.  You will not find a better ratio than this!

Cancer is the leading cause of death for women ages 20-64, taking far too many of our mothers, daughters, sisters, and friends.  Our foundation is set up to receive your restricted gift whether it is made for breast cancer, ovarian cancer, or any other area you designate.  Huntsman Cancer Foundation supports all areas of cancer research needs.  And we serve the largest geographic area of any National Cancer Institute-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center in the United States as the only center to cover 17% of the US landmass. 


Thank you for your generous, loyal support of our remarkable cancer institute.  As you can see from looking at this map, our impact is immense.  You have made this possible.

Cheers to eradication of cancer in our lifetime!
