Sidney Kimmel Cancer Center

Who We Are:

The Sidney Kimmel Cancer Center at Jefferson Health – one of only 71 National Cancer Institute-designated centers in the U.S. – is committed to delivering the most advanced, personalized cancer care, made possible by scientific discoveries and breakthroughs in detecting and treating cancer. SKCC provides access to advanced clinical trials and novel treatment strategies for patients close to home, or those traveling afar to SKCC’s programs of excellence. 

Your generosity brings us closer to reaching our goal to reimagine the future of cancer care. You are the difference. The next breakthrough, the next treatment—you make it possible. With a gift to the Sidney Kimmel Cancer Center, you can support path-breaking work that could one day lead to better detection, prevention, and treatment strategies for cancers of all types. You can help improve lives, giving more patients the strength to fight today and the hope for a cure tomorrow.

Make an impact by supporting one of our top priorities with a gift today.
