The LIVESTRONG Challenge benefits the revolutionary LIVESTRONG Cancer Institutes of the Dell Medical School at The University of Texas at Austin. For over 20 years, we’ve been changing cancer care in Austin and beyond, and we’re excited to be able to reach even more survivors through the LIVESTRONG Cancer Institutes.
The LIVESTRONG Cancer Institutes has a simple yet powerful mission: to reinvent the way cancer patients and survivors are cared for and supported. The Institutes is rethinking the full range of cancer care from prevention to diagnosis, treatment and survivorship, all with a focus on the patient’s needs, values and preferences.
Our goal is to create a comprehensive cancer care model that puts survivors’ needs above all else, from the medical to the emotional to the practical. This innovative model will help us combat cancer–the #1 killer in Travis County–right here in Austin, Texas. After its creation and implementation in Austin, we see tremendous opportunities to scale and replicate the Institutes’ model across the country and around the world.
