Support Those Who Support Us: June 2016


The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center – James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute is so grateful for the more than 400 Corporate and Community Partners who raise dollars to support care for our patients and the research that is bringing us closer to our shared vision of a cancer-free world.

During the month of June, we have so many partners who host events to raise awareness of different cancer types while fundraising to support the OSUCCC – James.
