Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center Fiscal Year 2011 (In thousands of dollars)

Thank you for joining us in our mission to eliminate cancer and related diseases as causes of human suffering and death. Private donations like yours are essential for Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center to respond rapidly to novel research opportunities that often lead to important medical breakthroughs.

Financial support from our benefactors enables us to attract and retain the world’s top scientists, provide our researchers with state-of-the-art technology needed to advance their work, and launch innovative pilot projects to explore better ways to prevent, detect and treat cancer and other life-threatening diseases. Private gifts also leverage significant additional investment by allowing our researchers to successfully compete for prestigious foundation grants that do not cover the full cost of research.

In addition to our groundbreaking research, your gift sustains critical support services for the patients and families who turn to Hutchinson Center doctors for lifesaving treatment. Programs include Pete Gross House; Hutch School; Cancer Information Service; Long-Term Follow-Up Program; Survivorship Program, part of the LIVESTRONG TM Survivorship Center of Excellence Network; and Cancer Prevention Clinic located at the Seattle Cancer Care Alliance.

The many accomplishments that keep the Hutchinson Center at the forefront of biomedical research could not be achieved without your generosity.

Thank you.
