Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.

The mission of Huntsman Cancer Institute combines groundbreaking research and state-of-the art patient care with the offering of hope and support for cancer patients and their families. Our teams of research scientists, medical professionals, and cancer educators are working to understand cancer, improve treatments, and help patients fight their disease. Huntsman Cancer Foundation President, Jon Huntsman, Jr., explains, "It is the goal of Huntsman Cancer Institute to become a symbol of hope and optimism. We want those carrying the heavy burden of cancer to feel strengthened and hopeful."
Salt Lake has become one of the foremost regions in the world for genetic and medical research due to its unique resource of large and close families with detailed genealogical records living in a relatively small area. These families, along with the cooperation of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (the Mormons), have provided physicians and researchers at Huntsman Cancer Institute with the tools they need to investigate the genetic pathways of cancer and to create new ways to prevent, diagnose, treat, and cure cancer. Huntsman Cancer Institute has become a reality thanks to the generous support of the Jon M. Huntsman family, which pledged $151 million in 1995 to create a world-class cancer center. This institute bears their name and their vision of hope for all who are burdened with cancer. Huntsman Cancer Institute is an extraordinary legacy for the children of this community and this nation.
