DanceBlue Kentucky Children’s Hospital Hematology/Oncology Clinic
It is the mission of the University of Kentucky 24-Hour Dance Marathon, DanceBlue, to create a multi-faceted organization that operates through the support and leadership of the UK students, faculty, staff, administrators, and the Lexington community. The organization enhances the lives of children and families fighting childhood cancer through the Golden Matrix Fund, and therefore serves the Bluegrass by assisting those treated at the DanceBlue Clinic.
In January of 2017, DanceBlue fulfilled a pledge of 1.225 million dollars to open up a new DanceBlue Kentucky Children’s Hospital Hematology/Oncology Clinic. The new clinic transforms treatment for our patients. With a space of more than double the size of the previous clinic, families, and patients are able to receive more privacy and better care than ever before.
In 2018, using money raised over the past several years, DanceBlue was able to start an endowment called the UK Distinguished Professorship in Pediatric/Hematology Oncology which provides funding for a full-time pediatric oncology researcher.
This RoomFunding Project will help fund the new DanceBlue Kentucky Children’s Hospital Hematology/Oncology Clinic.
