Legacy 2014

Progress is happening

Stefanie shared this thought throughout her life and today I continue to share that message with all of you. No, we don’t have a cure for cancer yet, but we are taking small steps every day of making that goal a reality.

Recently, I had my annual lab visit with some of the researchers benefiting from Spielman Fund dollars. You can read more about their work inside, but let me tell you, hearing from them is all the motivation I need to know that Stef’s statement continues to be true. We have some of the brightest and most innovative minds at Ohio State’s Comprehensive Cancer Center – James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute (OSUCCC – James). Their work will lead to new and innovative ways to prevent, detect, treat and cure breast cancer. I hope you will find their projects inspirational and hopeful.

The work taking place at The James would not be possible without all of you. 100% of every dollar you donate to the fund supports research and patient care. The reason progress is happening is because of YOU. With your support we have raised more than $15 MILLION dollars to fight cancer. Please note that I say cancer, not just breast cancer. We are learning that many of the treatments or therapies developed to benefit breast cancer patients also benefit patients with other forms of cancer. That is truly one of the great things about The James and Ohio State, the collaboration between researchers, physicians and academics is incredible. This is what separates us from other institutions… it’s progressive thinking and it’s making a difference.

More than 35 years ago, Dr. Arthur G. James had a vision of a free-standing cancer hospital. Since that time, there has been amazing progress in research and treatment that has taken place. So much so, that The James is opening the doors to a new James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute, a new state-of-the-art cancer facility designed to further the collaboration of research, education and patient care. This is a huge milestone… not just for our community, but for the world. This new facility will push us even further and I’m extremely excited and optimistic. As always, Stef was right on with her thinking… progress is happening, and it’s happening at Ohio State thanks to your support!
