Your Dollars Speed Innovation
Philanthropy is so integral to Miami Cancer Institute, it’s included among our “10 Pillars of Care.” At the Institute, donors support groundbreaking research to give cancer patients a lifesaving edge. Donors also help fund therapeutic programs and services that alleviate the burden cancer places on patients and families. Innovative research trials and beneficial support programs are often not funded by government or reimbursed by insurance. This is why generous donors play a major role in improving the lives of cancer patients and their families.
The Institute is one of the few cancer treatment centers in the world to provide every available radiation therapy technology in one location. We also are the only facility in South Florida – and one of the few in the nation – to offer proton therapy, an innovative treatment that targets cancer cells with pinpoint precision, avoiding healthy tissue. These advanced therapies are delivered by the most skilled radiation oncologists in the field.
Championing the Fight Against Cancer
Without the generosity of our community, our work would not be possible. Every day, our team of renowned cancer experts and researchers are dedicated to pioneering treatments that are changing the future of cancer care. Your generous contributions help them make a meaningful difference in their patients' lives.
