Support a Cancer Team

Thanks to research, many types of cancer are now prevented entirely or diagnosed in the earliest, most treatable stages. We envision a time when cancer is eradicated from the face of the earth.

Doctors and researchers at Huntsman Cancer Institute (HCI) work together to advance cancer prevention and treatment. These teams collaborate to ensure each patient who walks through our doors has the best possible outcome.

These teams emphasize innovation and focus on personalized medicine, genetics, prevention, and new, cutting-edge treatments through clinical trials. Scientists in the lab look for new cancer therapies while working with physicians in the clinic who seek new treatments with less adverse side effects and regimens for the individuals in their care.

The collaborative bench-to-bedside research model also enhances the impact of your support. Cancer teams, including researchers, doctors, and care teams working together can bring cutting-edge treatments to patients much more effectively than working in silos.

You can choose to direct your support to a specific cancer team or the area of greatest need. One hundred percent of your donation supports the mission of HCI to bring state-of-the-art treatment options to individuals with cancer, and ultimately end cancer as we know it.

To learn more about maximizing your gifts by supporting a specific cancer team, please email or call 801-584-5800 or toll-free 1-877-405-4673 (HOPE).

Opening in late 2022, The Kathryn F. Kirk Center for Comprehensive Cancer Care and Women’s Cancers at HCI expands our clinical footprint by 220,000 square feet. This expansion to our flagship campus in Salt Lake City will provide one-stop screening and treatment options for women’s cancers, increase inpatient hospital rooms by almost 50%, and double the size of our signature wellness, survivorship, and integrative health programs. It will connect to the existing hospital on the first, fifth, and sixth floors.

To learn more about these or other named space opportunities in HCI’s hospital or research buildings, email Executive Director of Major Gifts Loren Savage or call him at 801-584-5736.

Walk of Hope

When gifts reach a minimum of $350, donors can place a brick in the Walk of Hope pathway. The Walk of Hope is located on the west side of HCI, between HCI and Huntsman Cancer Hospital. This place of inspiration has sweeping views of the Salt Lake Valley and allows friends and families to honor their loved ones. An HCF representative will contact your family to verify the engraving (up to 40 characters) and let you know when the brick is installed.
