CTRC Cabinet

The Cabinet raises funds to directly support the Cancer Therapy & Research Center. The CTRC is one of four National Cancer Institute designated cancer centers in Texas and the only one serving our area. 

We are moving into a new era in cancer prevention, diagnosis, and treatment. Our task is challenging as cancer is such a complicated disease; each time we discover a new mechanism by which tumors develop or spread, we find new questions that must be answered for us to find a cure.

We also are impatient. As you know, I see thousands of patients each year with cancer and each and every one of them is a very special person to me. This is the attitude of all of our physicians: we want a cure today; now.

The CTRC is dedicated to the mission of preventing and curing cancer through research and treatment. Many of the drugs that have cured several types of cancer were first tested here at the CTRC.

If you’d like to learn more about the CTRC and the Cabinet, please contact Sheri Ortiz, CTRC Director of Development at (210) 450-5512. Our facilities are world-class and are only surpassed by the quality of our staff, scientists, physicians, and surgeons.

Please join my wife Donna and me by becoming a member of the CTRC Cabinet today!
