Cancer Center Cabinet

The Mays Cancer Center Cabinet's mission is more important than ever

Each year, about 14 million people learn they have cancer and 8 million die from the disease worldwide. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports that one-third of cancer deaths can be prevented, but oftentimes the disease progresses too quickly. For other patients especially those living in low- and middle-income regions, treatment services and technologies are not widely available to help them. 

Fortunately, advanced cancer treatment and care are accessible in San Antonio and South Texas at UT Health San Antonio MD Anderson Cancer Center. We are helping to ensure that these cancer care resources thrive and are obtainable for generations to come. 

The Cancer Center Cabinet was founded in 1996 and consists of a vital group of individuals and businesses who contribute $1,500 or more annually to support the mission of the UT Health San Antonio MD Anderson Cancer Center to conquer cancer through research, prevention, and treatment.

Why join the cabinet?

To help the doctors and scientists find a cure for this dreaded disease. Your gift of $1,500 or more will do just that. Funds raised will be used for research and clinical trials.

Cabinet members receive name recognition, invitations to special events, such as the Annual Cabinet Reception and the UT Health’s President’s Gala, and regular communication materials.
