A Cure For GI Cancers

Target hitting a bullseye with the word "cure"

Gastrointestinal (GI) cancers are the most common and most fatal of all cancers, yet continue to be dramatically under-funded. This year, 300,000 Americans will be diagnosed with GI cancer and more than 50% will succumb to their disease within five years.

One of the most meaningful gifts you can give cancer patients and their families is hope. Your gift to The Ruesch Center for the Cure of GI Cancers at Georgetown Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center will advance the most promising research projects with potential to save lives – and will bring hope to people fighting cancer in our community and around the world.
