Funds raised through Goin’ Bald for Bucks support the cutting-edge research and patient-care programs at Roswell Park Cancer Institute. The majority of donations made to Roswell Park fund new, unique and major cancer research to find cures and save lives — and every gift makes a difference.
Generous support from Bald for Bucks participants and the community allows Roswell Park to:
- Offer OmniSeq Target, a potentially lifesaving diagnostic test, for patients in need of financial assistance. OmniSeq Target is being used in the care of patients with advanced lung cancer and advanced melanoma, and it allows physicians to recommend personalized therapies based on patients’ individual genetic make-up
- Accelerate the development of our promising work on cancer vaccines, which are now being used in patients with solid tumors
- Address patients’ emotional and spiritual well-being through quality-of-life services such as support groups, art therapy and pastoral care
