Support the Vermont Cancer Center
We cannot meet our goals alone; your support is vital. Join us in the fight against cancer by becoming a donor or a volunteer.
The Vermont Cancer Center, a recognized leader in the field of cancer research, has been serving individuals and families in Vermont and northern New York since 1974. VCC brings together over 100 scientists and clinicians, all committed to a common pursuit—unlocking the mysteries of cancer. For people in our region, having VCC in the community means access to the latest in cancer research, treatment, diagnosis, prevention, and education. It also means hope.
"Twenty-five years ago my parents moved to Essex Junction to be close to the quality schools and a respected research hospital only 8 miles away. While my parents were surely not expecting I would be a cancer patient almost as many years as I had been a high school student, we were extremely grateful to have such close access to some of the best doctors and state of the art treatments."
- Laura Abrams, who at 22 was a patient at the VCC and who credits her survivorship to the advanced and compassionate care she received just 8 miles from her home.
