Where is the money going?

This event will raise funds for Duke Cancer Institute's Genitourinary Cancer disease group. Genitourinary cancers represent the broadest and most common group of all malignancies, including testicular cancer, bladder cancer, kidney cancer and prostate cancer. The funds will go directly to supporting research, education programs, and patient care programs.

Why should I support Duke?

Our Prostate & Urologic Cancer disease group is at the forefront of treating these cancers. We also have expertise treating mediastinal germ cell cancers, Paget’s disease of the scrotum, penile cancer, rhabdoid tumor of the kidney, stromal tumors of the testis, small cell/neuroendocrine cancer of the prostate or bladder, teratoma, transitional cell cancer, urethral cancer, urachal cancer, and urothelial cancer. Through multidisciplinary care, education, and research, our physicians are helping improve the survival and quality of life of patients. Our associated DCI Center for Prostate & Urologic Cancers, which brings together a multidisciplinary team of more than 20 clinicians and 30 laboratory-based researchers, is a national leader in the areas of health disparities, immunotherapy, population sciences and RNA targets and therapeutics.
