Offering Hope and Healing
to Cancer Patients
to Cancer Patients
This year alone, nearly 1.7 million Americans, including almost 33,000 Arizonans, will hear the dreaded words, “You have cancer.” Roughly 600,000 will die from it. Within 16 years, cancer is expected to overtake cardiovascular disease as the No. 1 cause of death in the United States.
Banner MD Anderson Cancer Center leverages the collective strengths of Arizona’s leading health-care provider and one of the nation’s top-two ranked cancer centers to wage war against cancer. Since opening in fall 2011, Banner MD Anderson has offered new hope to cancer patients and their families throughout Arizona and the Southwest.
Now we wish to take the next step in the cancer center’s development so we can truly proclaim to cancer patients and their families, Hope Starts Here.
