Cancer exists in many forms, but a defining feature is uncontrolled cell division.

Unfortunately, cancer continues to resist and it is anticipated that mortality will continue to uptrend. Precision oncology aims to understand a patient’s unique tumor profile and to exploit vulnerabilities by matching with a treatment.

Donate to the Silent Auction! 

As you might already know, we will be hosting our Annual Seminar virtually this April, and we also plan to host the Silent Auction virtually. The money raised from this event will go directly toward the OSHP Student Scholarship Fund which benefits pharmacy students at both Oregon State University and Pacific University. Each year, several $1,500 scholarships are awarded on the basis of academic performance, health care-related work experience, leadership, community service, and scholarly activities. 

The Silent Auction is organized by students from both universities. We are working hard to make this virtual event a success, but we cannot do it without your support. 

We are reaching out to see if you might already possess auction items or experiences you’d be willing to donate that can help us make this event a success. We think people might enjoy some of these experiences that were so lacking in 2020. 

  • Would you like a hiking buddy for a day trip to the Gorge?
  • Do you have season tickets for something you’d be willing to share?
  • Do you have a nice bottle of wine collecting dust in your cellar?
  • Do you have a teachable skill you could share with someone in an afternoon?
  • Are you the creative type? Can you make something someone would want to use?

If you would like to make a donation, please email the attached form in the link below with your pledge to [email protected] by April 23rd, 2021. We recognize these are challenging times, so please do not feel obligated to donate or go out of your way to purchase something.
