Friends of the UH Cancer Center
The Friends of the University of Hawaii Cancer Center is a nonprofit organization whose purpose is to promote the efforts of the University of Hawaii Cancer Center. The Friends' mission is to generate community support for cancer research and education to prevent and reduce cancer-related deaths as well as improve the quality of life of those diagnosed with cancer. The Friends support the Center's focus on opportunities that are unique to Hawai'i and its people.
Cancer is a disease that impacts one in two people during their lifetime and touches nearly everyone. The Friends organization was established to support the Cancer Center in their quest to prevent and find cures for cancer in Hawaii. This includes the Centerâ€™s education and outreach programs for those battling cancer, and family and friends who care or are caregivers. The Friends respond to and fulfill the UH Cancer Center's need for private funds to supplement federal and state resources by coordinating fundraising events and conducting an annual friendship drive to give people like you the opportunity to play a vital role in the fight against cancer.
