2022 Holiday Fund Drive

Bring healing and hope to people facing cancer this holiday season!

Your generous gift today to the 2022 Holiday Fund Drive will accelerate new scientific discoveries that lead to clinical trials and lifesaving cures. And that means hope for patients and families facing cancer this holiday season.

The 2022 Holiday Fund Drive ends November 30. So please give today and help lead the charge to end cancer and improve the quality of cancer care in North Carolina and beyond!

Give the gift of hope and life!

“Cancer is a disease that’s treatable, and the science and technology to treat it is advancing. UNC Lineberger is making advances every day that makes cancer less of a potent killer.”

Your Support Advances Critical Research and Patient Care

Dr. Elmore is a radiation oncologist who is highly focused on individualized care for patients. Currently, she is conducting a study of Black patients with prostate cancer to understand their perspectives on shared decision-making.

Previous studies suggest that Black patients experience more treatment-related regret for their decisions and have worse survival rates when compared to white patients. Dr. Elmore is determined to see this change.

“The medical part is almost the easier part,” Dr. Elmore admits. “We have big studies. We have lots of good research. We know exactly what to do. The harder part is tailoring and individualizing care.”
