What is Roswell Park?
Driven to eliminate cancer’s grip on humanity, Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center has a long history of cancer care. Founded in 1898 as the nation’s first cancer research center, Roswell Park grew from the vision of Dr. Roswell Park. Today, Roswell Park is one of the leading cancer facilities in the country. Its research has led to historic breakthroughs in the way cancer is understood, prevented and cured. That expertise also enhances how the next generation of physician leaders is trained.
Research With a Global Impact
Roswell Park has many researchers who bring their expertise to patients through innovative cancer therapies. The funds raised through Team Roswell help researchers investigate new treatment options and facilitate clinical trials for both common and rare types of cancers.
The faculty and staff at Roswell Park are committed to developing impactful quality-of-life programs for patients and their families. Donations raised through Team Roswell go directly to fund these programs, such as free wigs and head coverings for patients through Roswell Park’s Resource Center and comfort kits for overnight hospital stays.
