About Closer to Free
A cancer diagnosis is devastating—for a patient and for their family. At Smilow Cancer Hospital at Yale New Haven and Yale Cancer Center, no one faces cancer alone. We partner with our patients and their loved ones to provide personalized cancer treatments and compassionate care to achieve the best possible outcomes. Every day we work to develop new cancer therapies based on groundbreaking research. Our goal is to improve each patient’s prognosis.
At Smilow Cancer Hospital at Yale New Haven and Yale Cancer Center, together, we believe that through science, compassion and the sheer belief in what is possible, the world is becoming closer to free. This vision started with the opening of Smilow in 2009 and has since grown to a movement of patients, survivors, families, loved ones, researchers, employees and others who celebrate the life and passion in each one of us to live life our way.
