1. What are Personal Pages?
Personal Pages are an opportunity for anyone with interest in the fight against cancer to join us as we work towards cures. We invite patients, survivors, family members and friends - to become partners as we develop innovative treatments and conduct groundbreaking research. Each page includes a personal story, photos, progress towards a personal fundraising project or goal, and a guest book with notes of encouragement from supporters.
2. Where do funds raised from these pages go?
Every gift, no matter the size, brings us one step closer to the cure. Funds raised by myDuke Cancer Fund pages go to the Duke Cancer Fund to support innovative programs at the Duke Cancer Institute. Funds are also used to support researchers who are working every day toward realizing our vision of a world without cancer.
3. What is the Duke Cancer Institute?
Leading-edge cancer care and research have been a hallmark of Duke Medicine for nearly 75 years. Today, the Duke Cancer Institute continues to build on its national and global reputation as one of the foremost centers for cancer diagnosis, treatment, research, education, and training. We are one of the original eight designated Comprehensive Cancer Centers as named by the National Cancer Institute.
The Duke Cancer Institute provides specialized care to patients, treating every cancer type, with 100 oncology-dedicated, board-certified physicians and 500 clinical staff -- nurses, social workers, nutritionists, and others -- dedicated to cancer.
Since 1993 Duke has ranked among the top centers in the nation for cancer services according to U.S.News & World Report and leader in the southeast.
The Duke Cancer Institute is a single entity -- the first of its kind at Duke -- that brings cancer care and research even closer together. By uniting cancer physicians, researchers, educators, and staff across the medical center, medical school, and health system, the DCI offers unprecedented opportunities for teamwork among the scientists in our labs and caregivers in our hospitals and clinics.
