Cancer shows no mercy. Its dark cloud has touched most of us in some way. But the illumination Gala
, the Barnes-Jewish Hospital Foundation’s annual, premier fundraising gala, rallies our community to help make the future brighter in St. Louis and beyond.
All proceeds are direct to the Cancer Frontier Fund
, the Foundation's $50 million campaign, helps researchers at the Alvin J. Siteman Cancer Center at Barnes-Jewish Hospital and Washington University School of Medicine accelerate breakthroughs in prevention, diagnosis, and treatment. In 2010 the Cancer Frontier Fund
supported Siteman's research in breast cancer vaccination, melanoma vaccination, and improving outcomes for leukemia and esophogeal cancer patients.
