The Treads & Threads tradition
Behind the glitz and fun, Treads & Threads is a party with a purpose. Since 2002, the event has raised nearly $6.4 million to provide more options – and more hope – to patients at The University of Kansas Cancer Center
Proceeds from the 2013 event will support personalized care. Considered the future of medicine by the National Cancer Institute, it involves specialized therapies tailored to each patient’s genetic makeup and the cellular makeup of his or her cancer. Personalized care also involves tailoring care to each patient’s unique needs, which may include nutrition, education, support resources, survivorship resources and more.
