Proceeds from one of the most consistently popular fundraising events in Kansas City will benefit personalized cancer care at The University of Kansas Cancer Center. Considered the future of medicine, it involves specialized therapies tailored to each patient’s genetic makeup and the cellular makeup of his or her cancer. It also involves structuring care to each patient’s specific needs, which might include nutrition, education, support resources, survivorship resources and more.
