Working to harness our collective resources against this great challenge, we recognize one of the most significant catalysts for progress against cancer is the decision Texas lawmakers and voters made in 2007 to invest $3 billion in cancer research and prevention. Through the Cancer Prevention and Research Institute of Texas (CPRIT), the state of Texas has become a global leader in the effort to eliminate cancer.

With uncertainty about what may happen with CPRIT when the initial $3 billion is exhausted, we believe the Texas Legislature should continue to make the problem of cancer a priority – and ensure the work of CPRIT will continue.

We invite your organization to partner with us.


Our ultimate mission is the defeat of cancer. Our shared focus toward achieving that mission is to ensure the state of Texas maintains its status as a world leader in the fight against cancer by continuing its investment in cancer research and lifesaving prevention services through the Cancer Prevention & Research Institute of Texas (CPRIT).
