Letter from MD Anderson president

Now is the time for MD Anderson to envision and prepare for its future — one of increased financial stability, caring and mentorship, entrepreneurial opportunities, and trying new ideas and ventures while remaining judicious about how it uses its talents and resources.

The time is now to excel

Patients come first at MD Anderson as researchers develop therapies to strengthen the immune system; surgeons adapt even greater patient safety measures; emphasis is placed on nursing excellence and education; and volunteers help patients and caregivers navigate the journey through our hallways.

The time is now to collaborate

Every day, teams of cancer experts work together across specialties and around the world to help patients at each step in the journey — from assessing cancer risk to early detection, advanced technology for early treatment evaluation and side effects management.

The time is now to impact

Cancer research increasingly focuses on what we eat, our physical activity, the support of friends and family — and the role that our individual genetic make-up plays in our health. As the depth and breadth of research data increases, so do the possibilities of bringing the right drugs to the right patient at the right time.

The time is now to educate

Elementary school students, college graduates, health care professionals, tomorrow's scientists and doctors, surgeons and nurses are among the many who take training and knowledge gained at MD Anderson into the community, the region, the nation and the world.

The time is now to support

As government funding and grants dwindle, philanthropy becomes more essential for new prevention strategies and novel treatments. Fundraising groups find creative ways to raise money, for example, through cattle auctions. They also educate the community by supporting programs such as Too Cool to Smoke.
