Sometimes you have the opportunity to give back when cancer affects you personally.

Kelly Sitkin, colon cancer survivor and Assistant Director of Development & External Relations, finds it a privilege to raise money and awareness for the UW Carbone Cancer Center on a daily basis. She has been with the UWCCC for 7 years and loves when donors get excited about their dollars advancing local cancer research.

The UW Carbone Cancer Center is among several centers participating in a multi-site trial to test immunotherapy named, CTL019, which was developed by a research team at the University of Pennsylvania.
A promising method of immunotherapy to treat children with relapsed acute lymphocytic leukemia (ALL) is opening at the University of Wisconsin Carbone Cancer Center and American Family Children's Hospital in Madison, Wisconsin. The trial is open to relapsed/refractory pediatric ALL patients who have limited treatment options.
