BACKGROUND

BRAG LINES

PAY IT FORWARD

Cancer Alliance of Nebraska (CAN) collaborates with experienced physicians, hospitals, cancer clinics, and patients across Nebraska and provides breakthrough cancer treatment via clinical trials directly from the National Cancer Institute and pharmaceutical companies to cancer patients in the comfort of places they call home. The purpose of a clinical trial is to find ways to prevent, diagnose, or treat cancer. Through cancer clinical trials, our physicians continuously test new drugs and new drug combinations.

Cancer Alliance of Nebraska (CAN) was founded in 1993. The network of clinics and hospitals continues to expand. Through the successful collaboration of their research team and the support of physicians, clinics, and hospitals across Nebraska, CAN has, to date, administered 725 cancer clinical trials impacting over 8000 patients in Nebraska. When this research is shared—across the state and around the globe—we get closer to the cure even faster.

Help get closer to the cure! Make a donation, share CAN’s story in your newsletter, host the organization for a presentation at your next meeting, attend the annual fundraiser “Screw Cancer,” join the sand volleyball tournament, follow CAN on social media, and help spread the word about the organization’s important work. Every dollar stays in Nebraska to support cancer patients enrolled in clinical trials.
