Recap Video

Bounce Back from Cancer™

Bounce Back from Cancer™ is a partnership between the Miami HEAT and Baptist Health Foundation to raise critical funds to help the non-profit Baptist Health Miami Cancer Institute achieve its vision of a world without cancer. Cancer is the second-leading cause of death in the United States. One in two men and one in three women will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetimes. Bounce Back from Cancer™ is a full court press to defeat those statistics …and YOU can help!

Funds raised through Bounce Back from Cancer™ will help Baptist Health Miami Cancer Institute conduct breakthrough research and lifesaving clinical trials, right here at home.

Join us in our quest to build a world without cancer.
