Letter of Hope from the Multiple Myeloma Program

Though there is currently no cure for multiple myeloma, it is a very treatable disease. The Huntsman Cancer Institute Multiple Myeloma Program and other myeloma research communities continue to press forward in search of a cure. New treatments in the past 15 years have improved survival statistics for patients diagnosed with multiple myeloma, and clinical trials are researching promising therapies.

Letter of Hope - Sean Strope, MPAS, PA-C

Many of us were taught that no matter how bad it gets, it’s always worse for someone else. However true that may be, it doesn’t change the fact that what you’re facing is extremely difficult. It’s OK to struggle. To anyone feeling overwhelmed or lost, please know you are not alone. You are loved. There are others you love, and your love is extremely important to them.

Letter of Hope: Lung Cancer Research in the Oliver Lab

We know how cancer impacts your lives. It has touched our lives too. We want you to know we are working hard every day to uncover clues and new strategies for treating lung cancer. Lung cancer is the number one cause of cancer-related death in the United States and in Utah. Unfortunately, funding for lung cancer research is relatively low. Yet we know that people of all ages can develop lung cancer, including non-smokers, and our discoveries in lung cancer can affect the treatment of many types of cancer.

Letter of Hope from the Ulrich Group

We can only imagine how hard it must be for patients, along with their caregivers and loved ones, to hear they have cancer. Our shared purpose is to make it so no one has to experience these difficult emotions in the future by researching how to prevent cancer before it happens.

Letter of Hope from the Zangle Lab

Just a little way down the hill from Huntsman Cancer Institute, the Zangle Lab in the Department of Chemical Engineering is working on new technologies to choose the most effective therapies for each individual patient with breast cancer. We are excited about a project that takes a new approach to measure the growth of cancer cells and predict which drugs may be most beneficial to patients with advanced metastatic breast cancer.
