About the Cause

Help us build a community of healing for those whose lives are touched by cancer.

The American Cancer Society estimates that one in every two men and one in three women will develop cancer in their lifetime. The state of Tennessee will see more than 33,000 new cases of cancer in the next year alone. None of us knows when our lives will be touched by cancer, but we all can take comfort in building a community with the strength to accomplish all aspects of healing.

By becoming a Fan of Hope, you are not only supporting expansion of the Cancer Institute at University of Tennessee Medical Center but also protecting both the health and unity of our community by ensuring no one will have to leave our region to get great, comprehensive care. 

Brandy and I are dedicated to making a state-of-the-art cancer treatment facility a reality for the East Tennessee community. With your help, we believe that this goal can be achieved. No hospital touches the lives of as many people in East Tennessee as does UT Medical Center. It’s now time to show the extent of our fan support.

It takes an entire community to win in the fight against cancer. As a Fan of Hope you show support for patients struggling against this disease while providing for the future of all those around you. We ask YOU to become a Fan of Hope to boost our team to victory in this cause.

By becoming a Fan of Hope or otherwise supporting the Cancer Institute Campaign you are helping the Cancer Institute at the UT Medical Center achieve an NCI (National Cancer Institute) designation. Accomplishing this goal will mean a larger, more well-equipped facility and access to the leading experts, latest therapies, and best opportunities for research, grants, and clinical trials for all East Tennesseans.

Your support will promote the following improvements.

  • Fellowship & Endowments: Fellowships provide physicians the opportunity to pursue the cutting-edge research and clinical programs which lead to medical breakthroughs. Endowments will help to attract the best and brightest physicians to East Tennessee.
  • Centralization of all Cancer Services with Improved Access: At the current facility, expansion of cancer services and the increase in patient volume have far outpaced growth of the physical space. As a result, patient services and research facilities are often widely dispersed, causing disruptions in the continuum of care.
  • Expansion of Community Outreach and Educational Programs: Our team of health care professionals is committed to bringing screening programs and educational services into people's homes, neighborhoods and schools.
  • Cancer Institute Clinical Trials: Breakthrough treatments are born out of research. By expanding clinical trials, the UT Medical Center will be able to provide the most comprehensive, mulitdisciplinary care available.
