Providence Cancer Institute
at Providence St. Vincent Medical Foundation
Propel Cancer Research and Treatment
Donations support groundbreaking research, including leading edge clinical trials to develop new, innovative treatments for cancer by harnessing the power of the body's immune system.
Providence research scientists work in lockstep with clinicians to bring new treatments to patients faster. Seventy percent of cancer research at Providence is supported by philanthropy, and it is thanks to donor support that Providence Cancer Institute and the Earle A. Chiles Research Institute are known worldwide for advancements in cancer immunotherapy research and treatment.
But there is more to do. And you can help.
State-of-the art radiation technology
Help purchase equipment used for radiation treatments, such as new technology that allows for powerful, tightly-targeted doses and fewer treatment sessions.
Advance research into new immunotherapy and targeted therapy treatments for leukemia, lymphomas, melanoma and head, neck, lung and other cancers.
Helping patients through their journey
Help patients with financial assistance for rent, transportation and childcare, and with supportive apparel for patients receiving treatment for breast cancer.
Mapping the intersection of genetics and immuno-oncology
Advance research into personalized immune therapies by helping our scientists understand the genetic makeup of immune cells and cancerous tumor cells.
Care coordination and support
Give our patients the extra dimension of care to fight cancer and promote health on every level by providing critical supports not covered by insurance like patient navigation and integrative medicine.
Expanded clinical and scientific collaboration
Expand our translational “bench-to-bedside” research model by giving our practicing oncologists more time to partner with our cancer research scientists.
