Where Your Donation Goes

SIH Cancer Center

Saluki Athletics is teaming up with the SIH Foundation for the Salukis Blackout Cancer Football game. The SIH Foundation continues to lead fundraising efforts to support the SIH Cancer Institute.

Through the creation of a comprehensive cancer center, we are helping patients and their families remain close to home and providing quality state-of-the-art care. 

The SIH Cancer Institute:

  • Helped over 1000 new patients in 2017
  • Added 6 more infusion treatment spaces
  • Over a 30% growth in the first year
  • Began review of expansion needs
  • Surgical and treatment advancements

Projected trends indicate that incidence rates of all-cancer will increase by a staggering 45% over the next twenty years.  This represents a substantial number of patients enduring the hardships of their accessing care away from home and family.  As a result, SIH is committed to providing quality cancer care in southern Illinois.

Rarely in our lives do we have a chance to make such a meaningful contribution to our community.
