Hello,

Since 2002, dubbed "The Most Meaningful Golf You Can Play," the Huntsman Golf Classic has raised over $7.5 million for cancer research at Huntsman Cancer Institute (HCI). It is our pleasure to announce that on Wednesday, September 11, 2019, Huntsman Cancer Foundation will join forces with VLCM Foundation and merge tournaments, creating one premier golf event to support HCI.

Please see the event brochure for additional information.

100% of donations from the tournament will be used to fund cancer research at HCI. Private philanthropy helps seed the innovative ideas in our labs and ensures that lifesaving research at HCI continues. It provides the funding they need to have for the “proof of principle” work required to advance our knowledge in the field. You play a vital role in the quest for cures. Your participation in the Huntsman Golf Classic matters.

Just this past year, HCI has seen breakthrough discoveries large and small including:

  • Used the Utah Population Database to discover two new inherited cancer susceptibility genes for multiple myeloma, a type of blood cancer
  • Discovered a major pathway responsible for glioma, the most common brain cancer
  • Uncovered a new feature that identifies the most aggressive types of endometrial cancer
  • Made a promising breakthrough in pancreatic cancer, using already approved FDA drugs to see dramatic tumor reduction in weeks that haven’t been seen with other therapies, such as chemotherapy

Remarkable advances in cancer research are driving revolutionary changes in cancer care that we bring to our patients each day at Huntsman Cancer Institute. The world is taking notice of the strides we are making. We truly appreciate all your support throughout the years and cannot thank you enough. Your support will allow us to continue to explore groundbreaking new insights into cancer – benefiting all. We look forward to seeing all the familiar faces, and hope you join us in our mission to eradicate cancer from the face of the earth.

Please consider participating to help fund cancer research through the Huntsman Golf Classic, hosted by VLCM Foundation. Thank you again for your consideration.

 

Sincerely,

Susan Sheehan Sign Josh Linton Sign
