The UPMC Hillman Cancer Center Gala 2017, A Future Without Cancer will be a wonderful celebration of the advancements that are being made daily right here in Pittsburgh. The physicians, scientists, nurses, and staff at UPMC Hillman Cancer Center are dedicated to finding new and better ways to diagnose, treat, and prevent cancer. Each year, the UPMC Hillman Cancer Center Gala supports these efforts by recognizing millions of dollars raised for patient care and cancer research. Community partners, private and corporate supporters, and individuals make this possible.

Every day, researchers and clinicians are working side-by-side to discover new breakthroughs that will have a positive impact on the treatments of tomorrow. We are proud to be the only facility in western Pennsylvania to be designated a Comprehensive Cancer Center by the National Cancer Institute. This prestigious status means that we are viewed as a leader in the battle against cancer, offering a wide range of programs and services to our patients and our community. This means that we’re not just at the forefront of diagnosis, treatment, prevention, and research. We’re at the forefront of hope. The UPMC Hillman Cancer Center Gala has become one of the most vital and visible events in our city. This year’s gala will take place on Thursday, September 14 at PPG Paints Arena and will once again serve as the cornerstone of our annual celebration of the new developments in patient care and cancer research at UPMC Hillman Cancer Center.
