How to Help the Knight Cancer Institute

Knight Cancer employees celebrate support from the community to fund cancer research.
Knight Cancer Institute employees, including Director Brian Druker (middle), thank the University of Oregon in 2022 for raising $66,000 for breast cancer research.

Join us in the fight against cancer. Your gift of money, time, blood or bone marrow will help us change how the world understands and fights cancer.
