The Wilmot Cancer Institute is the largest cancer care provider in Upstate New York and is internationally known for research discoveries that have changed the standard of care. Support for the blood cancer research program will be critical as Wilmot pursues National Cancer Institute designation which will not only provide a substantial boost to Wilmot’s resources, reputation, and research, but increase patient access to clinical trials and novel treatment options.

Diagnosed in July 2011 with acute myeloid leukemia, Ralph Olney began chemotherapy and received a stem cell transplant from his brother. After experiencing side effects over the next few years, his leukemia returned. Ralph’s oncology team at Wilmot suggested another stem cell transplant and more than five years after the second transplant, he is doing well. Grateful for his care at Wilmot, Ralph is paying it forward by raising awareness about the importance of fundraising.
