Why Give

“If I had been anywhere besides Moffitt, I don’t think (my treatment) would’ve worked. Other places, the coordination just isn’t there. It really is a team approach.”
— Blaise Mooney, MD, Director of Breast Imaging at Moffitt and throat cancer survivor

 

We know how important it is to find a cure for cancer – its cruelty has touched all of us in some way. But we cannot do it alone. The need for leading-edge research and treatments has never been greater. Your support helps the Moffitt Foundation revolutionize cancer care and greatly accelerate the pace at which research is turned into lifesaving treatments.

The Amazing Impact of Your Support

 Supporters like you fund the research, education, and patient services that are saving and changing lives at Moffitt Cancer Center.

Because of you, the Center continues its singular dedication to preventing and curing cancer by bringing together the world’s best minds in a model partnership of unparalleled collaboration and service.

Your gift will help transform cancer from one of the most feared and deadly diseases to a highly preventable and treatable illness.

Your generosity gives patients and their families hope during the fight of their lives, contributing to cancer-fighting programs that provide critical support and care today and in the future:

  • Research. Because of you, Moffitt is pioneering life-changing treatments that were once not thought possible. You provide crucial seed funding for Moffitt’s most innovative research ideas — those for which public funding is often the hardest to secure. These budding projects and groundbreaking ideas pave the way for Moffitt scientists to obtain larger peer reviewed grants and expand their therapies to more patients.
  • Education and training. Moffitt educates more oncology professionals than every other institution in the state of Florida combined. As a National Cancer Institute (NCI) designated Comprehensive Cancer Center, education is a fundamental part of our core mission. Moffitt also provides numerous educational opportunities to other physicians and other health care professionals, international visiting scholars, and students.
  • Outreach and awareness. Moffitt conducts outreach programs that provide health education in the areas of prevention, early detection, and screening. Thousands of people participate in Moffitt’s outreach programs each year. They can then continue to share the knowledge and resources across their own communities.
  • Patient and family support. Moffitt brings help and hope to patients and their families throughout all stages of treatment and survivorship. Its programs include supportive care addressing physical and emotional needs, palliative care, pet therapy, arts-in-medicine opportunities, and holistic body-mind wellness practices including yoga, meditation and acupuncture.
