Welcome to our team page for Roswell Park’s first-ever Day of Giving. We’re excited for these 24 hours of generosity!
Because our Day of Giving is an opportunity for you to direct your donation to research areas that mean the most to you, and by giving to colorectal cancer research, you can make a huge impact for patients faced with this disease.
Colon and rectal cancers, grouped together and often referred to as colorectal cancer, are the fourth most common cancers in the United States among both men and women. The National Cancer Institute estimates that about 1 in 20 will develop the cancer in their lifetime. While we have more colorectal cancer survivors today than ever before thanks in large part to early detection and research leading to improved treatments, it can be more difficult to treat if detected late.
Here at Roswell Park, donations allow us to pursue and advance research, bring the latest treatment options to our patients and help them maintain the best possible quality of life. Our team is committed to increasing survival rates, developing new treatments, providing access to new therapies through clinical trials, and offering supportive services for our patients throughout their cancer journey.
But we need your help! Please consider making a donation today as part of our Day of Giving. The support of generous donors like you allows us to stay on the cutting edge of colorectal cancer research and to provide compassionate care to all our patients. Your donation will be used to accelerate promising clinical trials in immunotherapy treatments for colorectal cancer, which holds great promise.
On behalf of the patients and families we serve, thank you for making a difference.
