More than noting, knowing.

A diagnosis of cancer is unsettling enough, but that unwelcome news is usually followed by the continuous need for easy-to-understand information, accessible resources and updates to help patients and caregivers stay focused and informed during treatment.

At Cancer Institute of Florida, we strive to keep up with the latest cancer research, treatment and prevention news. We also participate in and stay abreast of many local, regional and national cancer related events. So, check the pages within the Cancer Institute of Florida Newsroom and Events section of the website often - there’s always something groundbreaking around the corner. Be sure to check the Calendar of Events often for up-to-date local events or promotions. If you’d like us to promote your cancer awareness event, submit the information through the Feedback or Contact pages of this website.

PurpleStride Strives To End Pancreatic Cancer

Pancreatic cancer is not the most proliferative cancer, but it is the most deadly and it is on the rise. Currently it accounts for 5% of all cancer deaths, and 73% of patients diagnosed with pancreatic cancer will succumb to the disease. Dr. Zakari from the Cancer Institute of Florida will attend The Pancreatic Cancer Action Network's upcoming annual walk, PurpleStride, to help raise awareness and support those who have lost a loved one or have been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. This November we can all work to end pancreatic cancer, read more about the walk here.
