Join us or donate in our support of bladder cancer research at the University of Minnesota in honor of all those battling bladder cancer.
All funds raised this year will remain in Minnesota benefiting the Bladder Cancer Research and Education Fund at The Institute for Prostate and Urologic Cancers at the University of Minnesota.
Bladder cancer is the 7th most common cancer in the U.S. and the 3rd most common cancer in men, yet there is not enough knowledge of the early warning signs and not nearly enough funding for research to find better treatments and a potential cure for this disease. There are over half a million individuals living with this disease in the US. The University is involved in research on many fronts to battle this disease. Research is ongoing to identify new urine based diagnostics tests, treat early stage cancer to preserve the bladder and also manage advanced disease with cutting edge surgery and immunotherapy.
