Fox Chase Cancer Center created the "Love Versus Cancer" campaign for people who recognize the power of love when confronting cancer. Love Versus Cancer aims to honor and promote the strength and hope that love brings to this challenge. We asked ourselves, "What unifies everyone confronting cancer?" The answer? A caring attitude and willingness to give of oneself, often well beyond demands of work or family duty. The unifying concept is fundamental: It is love.
"Love Versus Cancer" does not promise that love will defeat cancer -- not every "fight" will be won. It is a conscious departure from the language of President Nixon’s "War on Cancer." Love bolsters the spirit and help us rise above the disease. Wherever cancer may take us, love abides and offers strength and hope to confront the disease.
Fox Chase Cancer Center
Fox Chase Cancer Center, based in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, is the region's only hospital devoted solely to cancer treatment, research and prevention. Our 100-bed hospital is consistently ranked by U.S. News and World Report among the top cancer centers in the nation.

Fox Chase Cancer Center is part of Temple Health. It started as an independent, nonprofit institution formed in 1974 by the union of American Oncologic Hospital (one the the nation's first cancer hospitals, established in 1904) and the Institute for Cancer Research (founded in 1927). Fox Chase was also among the first institutions to be designated a National Cancer Institute Comprehensive Cancer Center in 1974. It became part of Temple Health in 2012.
