For 40 years, the William Stamps Farish Fund has been an involved and generous supporter of some of the most innovative initiatives carried out at the UK Markey Cancer Center. In 2018, the nonprofit reaffirmed that commitment with a $1 million pledge toward the Precision Medicine Clinic.

“Through this gift, the Farish Fund continues to demonstrate its commitment to science and the value it represents to the people of Kentucky,” said Michael Delzotti, CFRE, president and CEO of the Markey Cancer Foundation. “For it is research that helps to ensure that tomorrow will be better than today.”
Advanced medicine close to home
The Precision Medicine Clinic is an interdisciplinary clinic within Markey in which physicians, pharmacists, nurses and clinical research staff work collaboratively to provide unparalleled care for patients taking part in early-phase drug trials.
This clinic provides cancer patients from across Kentucky with access to advanced therapies, including early-phase, investigator-initiated clinical trials not available anywhere else in the state; Markey’s Molecular Tumor Board, which provides individualized consultation on cancer genomic sequencing results; and specialized infusion bays for extremely precise drug delivery.
