Since 1974, the KMF has partnered with the University of Kansas to fight cancer and improve people’s lives. Over the years, KMF has contributed more than $25 Million to KU Medical Center.
As the cancer center embarks on a new quest for comprehensive cancer center designation, there is a request for a $5.0 Million endowment from KMF, over a multi-year period, to permanently endow the masonic cancer Alliance. This commitment will establish funding for cancer education and research, in partnership with the Kansas University Medical Center. This significant contribution will help change the future fight against cancer – It will enable more lives to be saved. The benefits of this initiative are many and include:
- Link Kansas communities with NCI-designated cancer research and expertise available at The University of Kansas Cancer Center
- Connect patients to 2nd opinions and support health education programs close to home
- Partner with the Kansas medical community to advance the quality and reach of comprehensive cancer care
- Host life-saving cancer screening events across the region
This partnership will provide support for outreach, professional education and membership meetings, staff development and the opportunity to permanently endow the Masonic Cancer Alliance.
