Cancer shows no mercy. Its dark cloud has touched most of us in some way. But the illumination Gala rallies our community to help make the future brighter in St. Louis and beyond.
Since 2007, illumination has generated millions of dollars to support the Alvin J. Siteman Cancer Center’s leadership in the fight against cancer. The 2014 event alone raised more than $2.1 million for The Foundation for Barnes-Jewish Hospital's Cancer Frontier Fund, a $50 million initiative to help researchers at the Siteman Cancer Center accelerate breakthroughs in prevention, diagnosis, and treatment that will change cancer care and cure around the world. Our annual gala has rapidly become one of the can’t-miss evenings of the year.
The Siteman Cancer Center’s combination of innovation and compassionate care has made it one of the largest cancer programs in our country. Likely, someone you know has been treated there. Siteman offers patients a diverse spectrum of 340 therapeutic clinical trials. We will be honored to include your organization among those who want to invest in the lifesaving successes and potential of this phenomenal community asset— Siteman is the only cancer center in Missouri to hold the prestigious Comprehensive Cancer Center designation from the National Cancer Institute and membership in the National Comprehensive Cancer Network.
