Join the Friends of Norris Cotton Cancer Center to help raise funds and awareness for our Cancer Center, and bring hope to patients and their families in our community and beyond. All funds raised help fund innovative researchers and clinicians who are dedicated to finding ways to prevent, diagnose, and treat cancer. These funds also provide meaningful patient and family support services that are otherwise unfunded—such as support groups, massage, writing, and art therapy programs.
Events are organized based on local health and safety guidelines, and any event changes due to COVID-19 will be communicated with participants as soon as possible.
