5 Ways Your Donations Help Support State-of-the-art Technology and Equipment

Leading-edge equipment and innovative technology can not only help detect cancer earlier, but also provide advanced treatment options and improve patient quality of life. Here are a few ways your donation makes a difference.


This unrivaled imaging technology combines magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) with positron emission tomography (PET), allowing researchers to detect cancer easier, and to understand, more than ever before, how it behaves in the body.

Point of Care Ultrasound

Used for advanced cancer patients, this portable imaging technology will allow patients to be seen at home rather than in a clinic or emergency setting, improving quality of life and care.

Linac MR

Improving radiation treatment by merging the imaging abilities of an MRI system with the treatment capabilities of a Linear Accelerator, this machine will allow doctors to see and treat cancer in real time.

Volumetric Arc Therapy

A novel way of delivering radiation in less than three minutes, resulting in decreased treatment time and an improved patient experience.
