RESEARCH: Science saves lives.
Research is essential for any breakthroughs in the prevention and treatment of cancer. It also takes a tremendous amount of resources. Funds raised by the TTSC community make vital research possible by providing seed funding to innovative researchers who have dedicated their lives to discovering new and better ways to treat cancer.
On average, every $1 the Friends of Dartmouth Cancer Center invests in research leads to $7 in additional funding from other sources!
