The Vanderbilt-Ingram Cancer Center is committed to reducing cancer death and suffering through:

Located in Nashville, Tenn., our center lies in the “buckle” of the “cancer belt” – seven contiguous states with the highest death rates from cancer. Our job is not done until those statistics are changed.

Cancer is too big a problem to be solved by one Cancer Center. Through our participation in the network of National Cancer Institute-designated centers, the National Comprehensive Cancer Network and other local, regional and national collaborations, we are dedicated to being a partner with others who share our mission.

Cancer is our only competition.
