A message from Dr. DePinho
A word from the president
At MD Anderson, we pride ourselves on three core values: caring, integrity and discovery. These simple words sum up the commitment and compassion behind our mission areas of research, patient care, prevention and education. These are not mere buzzwords — they permeate our collective consciousness toward one common goal: end cancer.
We’re grateful for the dedicated donors who also share these core values. Your courage and generosity are reflected throughout Promise. By believing in MD Anderson and giving so selflessly, you embody the spirit of caring and integrity upon which we were founded. What’s more, your philanthropic support enables us to build on our world-class research strengths and forge new paths of discovery that will directly benefit cancer patients and their families, now and for generations to come.
At every level across this institution, we embrace the importance of caring, integrity and discovery. It’s what distinguishes MD Anderson as the world’s premier cancer center. We’re indebted to you for your continued support. Donors really do make a difference — by sustaining and often launching novel research projects, accelerating big data initiatives, funding vital educational programs, enhancing prevention and risk management efforts, extending our national and global reach, and more. Most important, you make life better for our patients, whose courage inspires us and whose gratitude drives everything we do. Thank you for joining us in Making Cancer History®.
