The vision of the Providence Neuro-Oncology program is to care for the whole person before, during and after treatment, to help people live longer with brain cancer and to create and participate in brain cancer research to find effective treatment options that do not damage the brain.Make a gift
Brain Cancer Research: Pursuing better options for care
The program treats patients with the goals of preserving quality and dignity of life while providing enhanced delivery of care, offering advanced imaging services and protecting essential functions such as vision, hearing and mobility. Approximately 250 patients and their families are cared for annually.
Neuro-Oncology Research: $250,000 needed
The Neuro-Oncology team is set to partner with Providence Cancer Institute researchers to offer new clinical trials to patients with brain cancer. By increasing our understanding of the blood-brain barrier and various immunotherapies, we hope to offer effective treatments that are much less toxic.
Kathryn M. Smith Memorial Fund to foster Innovation in Brain Cancer Research
In December 2022, Larry and Margaret Smith established the Kathryn M. Smith Memorial Fund for Innovation in Cancer Research in honor of their only child. “We thought long and hard about what we could do to honor Kathryn’s life, and how to use the resources she accumulated by her hard work and left to us. This was the first thing that made sense. We think she would want to support research that may help someone else one day.”Learn More
