As long as there is research, there is hope!
Through our mission of finding a cure for cancer, Voices of Hope is proud to be donating our proceeds to The Henri and Belinda Termeer Center for Targeted Therapies at the Massachusetts General Hospital Cancer Center.
Voices of Hope is a very special foundation driven by musical theater performers whose lives have been profoundly touched by cancer. In our battle to conquer cancer, the unity of art and science can be a powerful call to action. Through the voice of music, we strive to paint a compelling picture of hope that brings passion to the mission. Through an understanding of the research that holds the key to a cure, we give purpose to our actions. This dynamic is the foundation of the Voices of Hope, and the reason a group of local musical theater performers have joined forces with a world renowned cancer research team to share in the mission of finding a cure for cancer.
Voices of Hope is deeply committed to raising awareness and funds to support cancer research. To that end, Voices of Hope is proud to support The Henri and Belinda Termeer Center for Targeted Therapies The Termeer Center offers new hope to patients and their families at the Massachusetts General Hospital Cancer Center and beyond, as the center defines the future of cancer therapy.
Led by José Baselga, MD, PhD, chief of Hematology/Oncology, associate director of the Cancer Center and world-renowned pioneer in personalized cancer medicine, the Termeer Center offers a comprehensive translational research program to speed the discovery and delivery of new targeted therapies to patients with early and advanced stage cancers.
The Termeer Center brings together cutting-edge research resources and provides a foundation for collaborations among physicians and investigators from a broad spectrum of biomedical disciplines, resulting in a rapidly expanding arsenal of weapons against cancer. Leading specialists from the Cancer Center’s 23 disease centers participate in the Termeer Center by enrolling their patients in its fast-growing portfolio of Phase I, Phase II and Phase III clinical trials.
The cycle of discovery is swift and efficient, with newly identified genetic abnormalities revealing new information about cancer pathways and creating novel investigative possibilities, not only for Mass General researchers but for scientific collaborators around the world. The Termeer Center’s goal is to cut the average time for drug development from ten years to five and, with more clinical trials, improve access to therapy for patients. With hundreds of new anti-cancer therapies now in the development pipeline and countless patients waiting for targeted drugs that match their individual tumors, the Termeer Center’s work is vital and timely.
Therefore, we need you, to help us help them.
Thank you for your support.
