Huntsman Cancer Institute

Huntsman Cancer Institute (HCI) at the University of Utah is a cancer research and treatment center. HCI is a National Cancer Institute (NCI)-Designated Comprehensive Cancer Center, which means it meets the highest standards for cancer care and research and receives support for its scientific endeavors. Learn more about our Cancer Center Research Programs. HCI is also a member of the National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN), a not-for-profit alliance of the world’s leading cancer centers. NCCN is dedicated to improving the quality and effectiveness of care provided to patients with cancer.

 

Mission Statement

Huntsman Cancer Institute's mission is to understand cancer from its beginnings, to use that knowledge in the creation and improvement of cancer treatments, to relieve the suffering of cancer patients, and to provide education about cancer risk, prevention, and care.

 

Hope Through Research

HCI scientists focus on understanding cancer from its beginnings to create safer and more effective treatments. Researchers also investigate how genes function to discover possible methods of preventing, circumventing, or even reversing the genetic changes that cause cancer.

 

Hope Through Education

HCI offers free information about cancers, risk factors, screening, prevention, and treatments to patients, family members, physicians, and the public.

 

Hope Through Care

At HCI, teams of doctors and health care professionals work together to provide compassionate, state-of-the-art care.

 

Welcome to Team Jarem

Welcome to Team Jarem - a group of runners and non-runners alike that are unified in supporting the cancer fight of one of our dear friends, Jarem Hallows. Jarem has been fighting head and neck cancer for 2+ years. Long before his cancer-battle began, Jarem had demonstrated to those of us who have been fortunate enough to be associated with him that he is the kind of person that makes the world a better place. Now, together with his family, Jarem strives to be an inspiration to others who may be fighting cancer or going through other challenging times. He is documenting his journey at www.positiveforcancer.com.

 

2017 was the first year Team Jarem participated in the Huntsman 140 (see the highlight video here and Jarem's blog post here), and we are thrilled to be expanding our reach in 2018. Whether you are riding with us on June 16th, contributing funds toward head and neck cancer research, or adding your faith and support to Jarem's journey in other ways, we hope you'll feel inspired by the experience.

 

"My response to those amazing supporters wishing they could do more has always been something like 'Just knowing that you are in my corner and on my team helps me' - and that is because of the concept of DRAFTING. I still have to get up everyday, jump on the bike, and pedal my guts out. You can't do that for me. But when I know you are riding with me I can tuck in close and push forward while expending less energy. Those tough headwinds don't impact me as much." ~Jarem, June 2017
