For 75 years, MD Anderson has conducted bold research that has ensured that its patients receive cutting edge treatment that they simply cannot receive anywhere else. I can say from personal experience that battling cancer is a lot easier when you know you have the best doctors in the world behind you. I congratulate MD Anderson Cancer Center on this monumental anniversary and look forward to seeing what this institution does in the coming years to make cancer a thing of the past.”                                            

“Throughout its distinguished 75 years, MD Anderson’s world class health professionals have provided hope, healing, and exceptional care to more than one million patients,” said Sen. Cornyn. “Their focus on research and prevention has led to innumerable breakthroughs in the fight against cancer, and I’m proud to recognize the world’s premier cancer institution on its 75th anniversary.”
