It takes a community to fight cancer—and we need you to join the fight.

I-O research seeks to harness the body’s own immune system to help fight cancer. One area of I-O research is exploring biomarkers – individual characteristics of each person’s cancer. Understanding a tumor’s unique make-up through biomarkers may help researchers better address the disease.

Show us how you harness your unique inner power to rise up against cancer by submitting a photo and an optional short caption to our Facebook page. Help us reach 100 submissions, and we'll donate an additional $250,000 to participating cancer advocacy groups.
