Together, we can
FIGHT CANCER & WIN.
Kentucky is at ground zero with the highest death rates of cancer in the country. The UofL Brown Cancer Center was founded so that people wouldn’t have to travel to get treatment but instead would have access to the most sophisticated cancer care in the world.
We offer ground breaking clinical trials and approaches that hospitals around the world wait years to learn about. With top academic researchers and oncologists, we are at the forefront of innovation, testing new drugs that activate the immune system. These breakthrough immunotherapies are designed to be less toxic and save more lives.
We have proven that we can fight cancer and win. Melanoma is the number one cause of cancer-related deaths of women in their 20s. In the U.S. alone, 10,000 adults die of melanoma every year, which equates to more than one every hour. Through clinical research done right here at UofL Brown Cancer Center, we have reduced the three-year melanoma death rate from 95 percent to only 20 percent. This means more people, young and old, can be with their family, pursue their careers and enjoy their lives.
There are opportunities to support every facet of our work at Brown Cancer Center from the search for cures and educating the next generation of doctors, to addressing patient barriers to care, cancer prevention and early screening efforts.
