It is estimated that more than 70,000 new cases of bladder cancer were diagnosed in 2011, making it the fifth most commonly diagnosed cancer in the U.S.
Please join Team Jefferson and Dr. Jean Hoffman-Censits of the Department of Medical Oncology, Solid Tumor Division and the Kimmel Cancer Center at Jefferson in raising awareness of the disease.
This year’s walk will begin at the Kimmel Cancer Center’s Bluemle Life Sciences Building. Walk with us to Independence Hall, where we will have a tent and table with refreshments and information about bladder cancer and treatment options at Jefferson.
Can’t make it to the walk? Please consider donating to the team. All proceeds will benefit the Bladder Cancer Advocacy Network, host of the annual Bladder Think Tank – the only national scientific meeting focusing solely on bladder cancer. For more information, visit www.bcan.org.
