Where Your Help is Needed: Hollings Cancer Center
MUSC Hollings Cancer Center is a leader in cancer medicine. Our specialized cancer treatment programs, our vast array basic and clinical research activities, our multi-disciplinary approach, and patient-focused philosophy are our contributions to how cancer will be prevented, diagnosed, treated and cured both now and in the future.
Since opening its doors in 1993, demand for care, combined with our growing reputation for excellence, has led to a dramatic increase in the numbers of patients being served, from 12,000 in 1993 to more than 36,000 today. Meanwhile, we have become increasingly active in our search for new ways to treat and ultimately cure cancer, with enrollment in our clinical trials program increasing 400 percent over the last year alone.
If your life has ever been touched by cancer, you might have an interest in supporting the work that we are doing here at Hollings Cancer Center. Maybe you are interested in funding cancer research. Perhaps you'd like to help us further raise the level of care we can offer our patients. Or maybe you'd simply like to honor the memory of a loved one lost to cancer.
Whatever the reason, our mission is to help you match your philanthropic interests with the work taking place here at Hollings Cancer Center. And with a major expansion project currently underway at the center, there are plenty of opportunities for you to become involved in our campaign to bring hope, comfort and healing to those living with cancer.
Financial support provided by these chairs allows the center to competitively recruit the nation's most outstanding educators, clinicians and scientists.
Unrestricted and restricted research support allows our biomedical and clinical researchers to conduct pilot research projects that often lead to better treatments and cures for illnesses.

The Hollings Cancer Center Annual Giving Program
The Annual Giving Program supports a wide range of resources designed to enhance patient care and support cancer research, including:
- Retention and recruitment of the best doctors, nurses and researchers
- Equipment and teaching/research/patient care materials
- Outreach and education services
- Research studies
Because the program supports an "unrestricted" fund, it enables the center to meet needs as they arise. It is this flexibility and responsiveness to student needs that makes the patient care environment at Hollings Cancer Center truly exceptional.
