Join the HEAT. You can HELP. Find a CURE.

HEAT.HELP.CURE. is a partnership among the Miami HEAT and Baptist Health South Florida to raise critical funds to help the non-profit 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. HEAT.HELP.CURE. is a full court press to defeat those statistics …and YOU can help!

Funds raised through HEAT.HELP.CURE., will help Miami Cancer Institute conduct breakthrough research, access the world's latest technologies and equipment, and retain internationally-recognized cancer experts who provide world-class cancer care right here at home.

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