This year's Huntsman 140, held on June 20, was the biggest in the event's 5-year history! More than 850 riders raised more than $425,000 for cancer research at HCI. Thank you to all of the cyclists and volunteers who made this year's ride such an incredible experience.

Earlier in June, Huntsman Hometown Hero cyclists took to the scenic roads of northern Utah in the annual women's-only Little Red Riding Hood Ride. Our Heroes pedaled up to 100 miles for the ride and raised more than $70,000 for women's cancer research at HCI. Thank you all for your hard work this spring!

Medical recommendations about sun safety are the same whether a person carries inherited genetic risk for skin cancer or not. HCI investigator Lisa Aspinwall, PhD, and her team explored whether genetic tests that identified a heightened risk for melanoma affected participants' sun safety behaviors. Read about the surprising results. http://bit.ly/1HQBytK

Mark your calendar to see what’s been called an “accurate, sobering, and powerful film” (Dr. William Bonnez, University of Rochester, NY) that could save your life or the life of someone you love. The Intermountain West HPV Vaccination Coalition is hosting this free public event to raise awareness of the importance of HPV vaccination. Learn more: http://wp.me/p5oiVV-g8

Sauce Headwear created a special-edition print to honor the Huntsman Hometown Heroes at Little Red Riding Hood earlier this summer. They've extended these limited beanies, hats, and headbands to the public at their website, with 50% of the sale of each piece benefitting women's cancer research at HCI. Get yours before they're gone! http://bit.ly/1IYpKo4

Studies led by HCI researchers Sean Tavtigian, PhD, and David Goldgar, PhD, have added four genes to the list of breast cancer susceptibility genes. These discoveries may have positive implications for families that carry mutations in these genes, giving them a leg up in fighting the disease. http://bit.ly/1HQCPRu

Expanding Possibilities for Healing and Hope
Introduction

Huntsman Cancer Institute (HCI) is are part of the University of Utah Health Care system. We serve cancer patients throughout the Intermountain West and provide academic and clinical training for future physicians and researchers.

Hope through Research: Our scientists focus on understanding cancer from its beginnings to create safer, more effective treatments. Researchers also study how genes function to look for ways to prevent or even reverse genetic changes that cause cancer.

Hope through Education: We provide free, expert and accurate information about cancers, risk factors, screening, prevention, and treatments to patients, family members, caregivers, physicians, and the public.

Hope through Patient Care: Our teams of doctors and health care professionals work together to provide compassionate, state-of-the-art care.
