CAR T-cell therapy is highly effective in stopping even advanced cancers, and uses the patient's own T-cells to attack and kill cancer cells.

The FDA has approved CAR T-cell therapy to treat several types of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, multiple myeloma, and acute lymphoblastic leukemia. Research trials are underway exploring treating cancers of the breast, colon, brain, and lungs.

Patients must live within 30 minutes of CAR T-cell therapy treatment centers for weeks at a time.

Currently, however, the closest treatment centers are in Salt Lake City and Seattle.

Many cancer patients in Idaho can't easily make out-of-state trips for extended periods to access this potentially life-saving therapy. With your help, St. Luke's can bring CAR T-cell therapy closer to home.
