OUR FAMILY. OUR FUTURE.

CANCER ENDS HERE.

Three leading Cincinnati institutions are launching a community-wide effort to turn the tide against cancer in our hometown. Join us.

This year, Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana are expected to see more than 131,000 new cases of cancer.


Through a shared vision to reverse this trend, the University of Cincinnati, UC Health and Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center have formed the Cincinnati Cancer Center, a unique collaboration focused on breakthrough research.

We're focused on bringing the next generation of cancer treatments to all patients and all health systems in our community.

This will be done through dedicated study into the causes and cures for this disease, innovative drug development, and broad regional collaboration focused on reducing health disparities.

Our Vision

Why Now?
