Welcome to our team page for Roswell Park's first-ever Day of Giving. We're excited for this 24- hour give-a-thon!
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 gynecological cancer research, you can make a huge impact for patients facing this disease.
There are six main types of gynecological cancers: cervical, ovarian, trophoblastic disease, uterine/endometrial, vaginal, and vulvar. Uterine is the most common of these, and encompasses endometrial (the most common subtype), as well as uterine sarcomas, and carcinosarcomas. It is the 5th most prevalent cancer in women, with over 60,000 new cases diagnosed in 2016. While not the most common, ovarian cancer is the most deadly, causing more deaths per year than any other gynecological cancer.
We are making progress with these cancers thanks to new treatments like immunotherapies and with clinical trials, but we still have a long way to go. 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 gynecological 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 gynecological cancer, which holds great promise.
On behalf of the patients and families we serve, thank you for making a difference.
