The Cure Starts With Us!



The Cure Starts With Us - Scientists, Students and Supporters. With a new slogan, comes a new t-shirt! In spring 2023, the Johnson Cancer Reserch Center hosted a t-shirt design contest. The winning design is on our 2023-2024 t-shirts in lavendar and gray. Daily, the scientists and students perform basic cancer research to design and generate new treatments, diagnostics and methods of prevention. However, this would not be possible without help from the supporters!

Get your shirt now before they are gone 😊 Everyone will be wearing them at the September 23rd home football game in honor of K-State’s family…cancer has touched all of us in one way or another. Watch the Marching band’s performance at the game and help with our Johnson Cancer Research Center’s initiative “Wildcats give $10 to Cure Cancer”!

Apparel proceeds benefit the Johnson Cancer Research Center at K-State. Don't want a shirt? Donate to The Cure Starts With Us.
