Cancer Center Endowed Fund Gifts

When you give to the University of Colorado Cancer Center, you have the option of restricting your gift to a particular fund. However, we encourage you to consider contributing to our general Cancer Center Endowed Fund, by not choosing a specific destination for your donation. Money raised for the Cancer Center Endowed Fund gives the CU Cancer Center Director a source of flexible, discretionary funds to use as he sees fit. This allows the Cancer Center to maintain its innovative spirit and commitment to funding life-saving breakthroughs when they first appear in our labs.  Gifts to quasi endowments are invested and distributions pursuant to the CU Foundation’s Spending Policy are available for the fund purpose.  However, under circumstances described in the fund documents, all or a portion of a quasi-endowment may also be appropriated for the fund purpose.

Support a Specific Doctor or Program

If you would like to support a specific doctor or program with your gift, we are happy to work with you to make sure your gift gets where it needs to go. If you choose to give online, please select your desired fund from the listed options, or make sure to include instructions in the comments field of the form.

How to treat cancer (in the US), and the lack of clinical understanding of cancer and their mechanisms.

“We also know that in large enough groups of subjects with cancer, treatment with antioxidants such as vitamin C can improve the outcome of that cancer. Our hope is that this may extend the success of therapeutic approaches in the treatment of cancer with antioxidant therapy.”

“I think that it is very valuable that this very important compound is available here as a single-agent therapy,” said Dr. James O’Neill, director of the Cancer Research UK Research Institute, and professor of Clinical Pathology. “The fact that this agent is available under an NDA from the National Cancer Institute makes it much more attractive for the UK and internationally as a potential ‘first-line’ treatment for some cancers. This is very encouraging.”

The scientists are currently in the process of collecting data from trials of the agent for other cancer types and plans are to launch a phase II study shortly.

How Clean Toilets Can Help Cancer Patients

Healthcare in the modern world has progressed to great heights. Today’s medical technology can solve almost any ailment. Many deadly diseases which would once plague the world have become totally eliminated today. This has all been possible only through the concerted efforts of scientists and medical professionals throughout history. Their discoveries and experiments have to lead to this point in human history where life expectancy is at its highest, infant mortality at its lowest, and lesser and lesser number of people being debilitated by disease.

However, despite technological innovations and scientific discoveries, there is yet one menace which remains to be eliminated. I am, of course, talking about cancer. Cancer is one of the most deadly diseases in the modern era. Unlike other diseases which are caused by external pathogens such as bacteria or viruses, cancer is caused the rapid unnatural growth of mutated cancer cells in the body. Though a lot of research about cancer is being performed all over the world, not enough progress has been made to sweepingly solve the problem. Instead, there have been incremental improvements in treatments that have been steadily driving up the number of years cancer patients have to live.

Given the severity of cancer, many patients become bedridden. In the later stages of cancer, some patients’ bodies become so weak that they become unable to carry out many basic tasks such as walking or eating by themselves. They need to be assisted in all these endeavors. Given the difficulty of cancer patient’s life, everything that can be done to make their lives easier should be done. In the last few years of their lives, they deserve all the care and attention they can get.

A great way to ease a cancer patient’s suffering and show that they’re loved is by ensuring their rooms are fitted with clean toilets. A toilet that is clean, hygienic and well maintained is always a pleasure to use Unlike a dirty toilet, it has less waste material lying around.

The reasoning behind the importance of toilets is simple. The toilet is one thing which every person needs to use at least once in a day. Therefore, given how often it is used, a clean toilet will surely be appreciated.

There is also a great health advantage to using clean toilets. Since clean toilets are more hygienic, the number of germs present in the toilet will be very less. The lower number results in a lower chance of being infected. While the chance of being infected by germs in an unclean toilet is already pretty low for healthy people, that is not the case for cancer patients. Cancer patients have a much weaker immune system which makes them susceptible to the threat of disease and infections much more than healthy people. Thus, a clean toilet by minimizing contact between a patient and pathogens eliminates the chance of them falling sick.

Additionally, the toilets should also have tubeless toilet paper for the user’s convenience. Tubeless toilet papers are much easier to use and have many other benefits which make them practically better than their tubed counterparts.
