About the Friends of Dartmouth Cancer Center
The Friends of Dartmouth Cancer Center is dedicated to supporting the services provided by Dartmouth Cancer Center, world-renowned cancer treatment and research facility affiliated with The Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth and Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center.
Founded in 1982, the Friends of Dartmouth Cancer Center has raised more than $52 million to date to support cancer research and patient and family supportive services.
This money helps fund world-class research, state-of-the-art equipment, critical education programs, and innovative clinical trials that make a difference in the treatment of cancer patients all over the world. Funds from the Friends also go toward important patient and family supportive services that help ease the journey of cancer patients and their families, such as support groups, massage therapy, art and writing programs, transportation assistance and resource libraries.
Our mission is to support Dartmouth Cancer Center by raising funds for cancer research and patient support services, by increasing awareness of our NCI-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center, and by acting as ambassadors for the Cancer Center and the communities it serves.
