Help bring the latest advances in diagnostic imaging to Sonora

Your support of Gala 2024 will help fund the purchase of a state-of-the-art PET/CT machine with advanced artificial intelligence capabilities. Positron emission tomography (PET) and computed tomography (CT) scans are used for cancer diagnosis, treatment planning and assessment of how well treatments are working. This sophisticated imaging equipment is essential for our care teams at the Diana J. White Cancer Institute to provide cutting-edge oncology services for our community.

Provide hope for local cancer patients

Gala 2024 will also offer a thrilling live auction to benefit the Cancer Patient Support Fund. Bid on a selection of art, vacation packages and more to help local cancer patients and their families with transportation to and from appointments, groceries, utility bills, medication co-pays and much more.
