Annual Report masthead

MD Anderson’s 2014 Annual Report highlights achievements and contributions of our faculty, staff, volunteers and donors in advancing the research, treatment and prevention of cancer. It also provides key financial and statistical data.

Cancer can strike fear in us. Cancer can, at times, perplex us. It can sadden, frustrate and anger us.

But cancer can’t stop us.

This past year was filled with outstanding accomplishments, and I’m so proud of the tireless effort shown by everyone associated with MD Anderson — our employees, patients and their families, advocates, volunteers, donors, legislators and beyond. Together, we are relentless in the pursuit of our mission.

Cancer won’t win. We will.

Cancer can't match our resolve

At MD Anderson, everything we do revolves around the people we serve: our patients. Our only focus is Making Cancer History, and each and every employee and volunteer plays an important role in accomplishing that mission. The institution’s physicians and researchers are committed to turning discoveries into clinical advances that reduce cancer deaths. Our determination is unshakable.

People and data


Cancer can’t outrun us

In FY14, MD Anderson invested more than $735 million in research, and our investigators’ work in the lab is resulting in significant benefits for our patients. From the development of novel therapies and cancer drugs to a new algorithm for determining when ovarian cancer patients should have surgery — a move that could change the standard of care — we are focused on science that enables.


Cancer can’t escape our reach

When Marietta Cline, a pediatrician with a busy practice in Dickinson, Texas, learned she had breast cancer, she sought care at
MD Anderson in the Bay Area. Located close to where she lives and works, Cline was able to conveniently access the institution’s world-class cancer care. Her story is just one example of how the
MD Anderson Cancer Network is taking the institution’s clinical expertise to patients outside of Houston.


Cancer can’t surprise us

Knowledge is indeed power. And at MD Anderson, we want to convert our knowledge of cancer into the power of prevention. Raising awareness of the disease and promoting healthy lifestyle choices that can help people avoid becoming patients is a big part of what we do.
