Memorial and Tribute Gifts

Many people find it meaningful to make a gift to the USC Norris Comprehensive Cancer Center in honor of someone who is fighting cancer or in memory of a friend or a loved one. Others want to recognize someone who make a difference in the lives of cancer patients, such as a physician, nurse or other caregiver. It’s a thoughtful way to pay tribute to someone whose life has been impacted by cancer. And your gift makes a real impact in our fight against this disease.
