Oncology and Hematology

How You Can Help

Lymphoma Research Donations: At the University of Nebraska Medical Center we believe there is no better medicine than hope. Through private support, we can provide those facing the realities of lymphoma greater hope by advancing state-of-the-art research, treatment and patient care programs.

Every day we see patients seeking the internationally-recognized expertise and care at UNMC for treatment of cancer and blood-related diseases. Their perseverance strengthens our determination to eliminate these diseases which affect one out of every two Americans sometime during their life. An example of one of these extraordinary individuals can be found at the University of Nebraska Foundation. Visit teamzachary.com today to learn more about Zach's story.

UNMC's Oncology/Hematology Division has assembled teams of renowned physicians, researchers and educators. We collaborate to find better ways to prevent and treat various forms of cancer and blood-related diseases such as lymphomas and leukemia.

This collaboration promotes the rapid translation of discoveries into new treatments. Ultimately, it enables us to provide therapies that cause fewer side effects and increase cure rates.

We are committed to providing the best treatment available today as well as discovering and evaluating new therapies for the future. This important work saves lives and forever changes the face of cancer and blood-related diseases.

Give the gift of hope today by supporting the UNMC Oncology/Hematology Division and UNMC Eppley Cancer Center and its lymphoma program. Your donation, made through the University of Nebraska Foundation, will benefit physicians working with the lymphoma program in developing clinical research and patient care programs that enhance the lives of our patients.
