“Whenever we contribute to the cure of a child
with cancer, Kiwanians are part of it.” – H. Stacy Nicholson, M.D., Chairman of the OHSU Department of Pediatrics and Physician-in-Chief of Doernbecher Children’s Hospital
The Kiwanis Doernbecher Children’s Cancer Program is a partner in furthering these research efforts by supporting the training of the next generation of children’s cancer specialists. Applying the expertise they develop through the Kiwanis Children’s Cancer Fellowship Program, these young physicians will spend the next 40 years caring for children and seeking cures for currently untreatable forms of cancer.
Children from Central Oregon have made hundreds of visits to Doernbecher. Your contributions serve children from YOUR COMMUNITY.
