Cancer Link is a non-profit, all-volunteer organization dedicated to finding an ultimate cure for breast cancer through research, spreading breast cancer awareness through education, improving the quality of treatment for those suffering from the disease, and growing and fostering the community outreach at the Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center of the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine. The Braman Family Breast Cancer Institute at Sylvester has greatly benefited from the continuous support of Cancer Link which has sponsored key research studies and further advancements to breast cancer bedside treatment.
In its twenty years, Cancer Link has raised more than $1Million to support breast cancer research at Sylvester through sponsorship, major annual luncheons, and several events throughout the year with its various community partners.
Sylvester integrates all cancer-related activities of faculty members at the University of Miami, including cancer diagnosis, treatment, research, and education at the University of Miami’s Miller School of Medicine, and UHealth, the University of Miami Health System. As the only academic-based comprehensive cancer center in the region, Sylvester plays a unique role in the South Florida medical community. In 2012, Sylvester physicians treated nearly 6,000 newly diagnosed cancer patients within the University of Miami Health System. In addition, Sylvester physicians supervised the care of more than 2,500 new cancer patients at Jackson Memorial Hospital.
In an effort to better serve current and future patients throughout the region, Sylvester has established exemplary outpatient treatment facilities in Miami, Deerfield Beach, Kendall, Plantation, Hollywood and Coral Springs and thus provided local access to Sylvester physicians, clinical trials, radiation therapy, infusion therapy, imaging, and laboratory services. With an unparalleled team of dedicated faculty and state-of-the-art facilities, Sylvester confirms its steadfast allegiance to ensuring convenient, as well as compassionate, expert cancer care.
