Let's Hammer Down Cancer
Move cancer research forward. Purdue University is proud to Hammer Down Cancer in the fight against the disease. Purdue’s Hammer Down Cancer campaign, in partnership with the Purdue University Center for Cancer Research, is focused on discovering how cancers develop, progress and respond to treatment. Then, we can make advancements in medicines, detection and diagnostic methods — and develop more effective treatments and highly efficient drugs.
Throughout the week of Oct. 6, 2014, Purdue University will feature a luncheon, giveback events, student activities and the Hammer Down Cancer Game on October 11 vs. Michigan State — all to help raise awareness for this important campaign. For this Hammer Down Cancer game, fans are asked to wear cancer-supporting shirts to help those battling the disease and honor those who have survived. The Purdue football team will display its support for cancer research.
