She Had Amazing Support Every Step of the Way

"MyMichigan was the best of the best. It was reassuring knowing that I was getting the best care possible."

Jeri's Story

My Go-To Place

Comprehensive Cancer Center

Our vision for the James T. and Elsa U. Pardee Cancer Center brings care into one location, creating an exceptional patient experience. It creates space for multiple specialists to see the patient on the same day, collaborate and provide the patient a plan of care without multiple appointments at multiple locations.

In 2019, the program grew by 5.5 percent and in 2020, we continued to see an increase in the demand for cancer services. The current Cancer Center does not have room to accommodate any additional growth. Furthermore, our patients’ number one request is to have all cancer services in one building.

We All Know Someone With Cancer

We all know someone who has been touched by cancer. One single word, cancer, can turn a person’s world upside down. We want to be that person’s go-to place when they hear the word “cancer” by offering the latest technology and the brightest medical talent at the Pardee Cancer Center.

A newly diagnosed cancer patient has over 100 visits between the hospital, doctor’s office for testing, treatment and monitoring within the first year following their diagnosis. It is not uncommon for a patient to have a laboratory draw, diagnostic imaging tests, an office visit with their medical oncologist, as well as chemotherapy and radiation treatments all within a single day.

Will You Join Us On This Journey?

MyMichigan Health’s Foundation is seeking philanthropic support to help build a Comprehensive Cancer Center that provides quality cancer care and a world-class experience, yet can accommodate the rapid changes in medicine, treatment and technology.
