The American Cancer Society’s 7th Annual Champions of Hope Gala will be held on Saturday, November 9, 2019, at the Wings Over the Rockies Air & Space Museum. This year’s theme Pop of Color encourages guests to dress in black-tie attire with a Pop of Color representing the type of cancer you have been affected by or awareness you support.
The Champions of Hope Gala is led by some of the most distinguished leaders in the Denver area; our CEOs Against Cancer of Colorado – Denver Chapter Members. CEOs from the country’s top companies are uniting to change the course of cancer to leverage the collective knowledge, power, and resources of the American Cancer Society.

Together, we are a united force against all cancers.

WE FIGHT FOR EVERY LIFE


WHAT ACS MEANS TO RESEARCHERS

  • The Society funds basic research, which is critical because we can develop an understanding of cancer mechanisms and targets that eventually lead to effective cancer treatments. Great strides have already been made by American Cancer Society funded researchers, but we need to continue our lifesaving work.
  • I conduct research specifically in the genetics of prostate cancer tumors. My investigation is to further identify therapies for the various genetic subtypes of prostate cancer. ACS donations allow cancer research to continue, keeping many researchers like me at the bench and our laboratories open.
  • My research is identifying new targets for therapeutic intervention and understanding why current therapies fail. With ACS donations, we can continue to drive diversity in our scientific approach to diagnose, treat and support patients suffering from cancer. Thank you for your continued support in cancer research.
