Hope Starts Here, at UVA


In 2000, a group of cancer patients, with their friends and families, founded the Patients & Friends Research Fund at the University of Virginia Cancer Center. Since then, the fund has provided more than $3 million to support research at critical stages in the process, when promising ideas might otherwise go untested for lack of funding.

Every gift matters, and every dollar raised goes directly to cancer research at UVA.

Your gift to Patients & Friends helps:

  • Put more scientists to work on finding better treatments for cancer
  • Quickly move discoveries out of the laboratory and into the clinic
  • Increase opportunities for patients to enroll in clinical trials
