At the OHSU Knight Cancer Institute, research and care teams are transforming the way the world understands and fights cancer, providing new treatment options and hope for patients throughout our region and the world.

Inspired by our mission to end cancer as we know it, Phil and Penny Knight issued a $1 billion, two-year challenge on Sept. 20, 2013. The Knights will give OHSU $500 million if we raise an additional $500 million by February 4, 2016.

Join the Knight Cancer Challenge by making a gift or learn about additional ways to get involved.
