Fighting the Battle Against Cancer 

When Chuck Maniscalco was diagnosed with the same lung cancer that took his mother and sister, he feared it was a death sentence.

Thanks to donors like you, however, Chuck has options for treatment that his loved ones didn’t... and a new sense of purpose. Chuck’s oncologist enrolled him in the OncoSET program at the Robert H. Lurie Comprehensive Cancer Center of Northwestern University, a donor-supported cancer clinic that provides personalized evaluations and customized treatment plans for patients with limited options and limited time. Sometimes these treatments are still in clinical trials, and therefore only available at an academic medical center like Northwestern Medicine.
