Mission Partners:

Johns Hopkins Sidney Kimmel Comprehensive Cancer Center

2023 marks the 50th anniversary of the founding of the cancer center at Johns Hopkins. Patients who visit the Sidney Kimmel Comprehensive Cancer Center at Johns Hopkins have access to some of the most innovative and advanced therapies in the world. Because Kimmel Cancer Center clinicians and research scientists work closely together, new drugs and treatments developed in the laboratory are quickly transferred to the clinical setting, offering patients cutting edge therapeutic options. The Kimmel Cancer Center’s commitment to excellence in patient care and research is enhanced by their dedicated facilities, including the Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Building and Skip Viragh Outpatient Cancer Building, clinical care facilities; and the Bunting Blaustein and David H. Koch Cancer Research Buildings, home to their strong research and teaching programs. 

University of Virginia Comprehensive Cancer Center

The UVA Comprehensive Cancer Center (UVACCC) is one of just 53 in the nation to hold that designation by the National Cancer Institute, and the only one in Virginia. More than 175 researchers pursue discovery in support of cancer prevention, detection and treatment. UVACCC’s work directly supports patients seen by UVA Health clinicians and individuals who live in the UVACCC catchment area through outreach partnerships. UVACCC offers robust education and career development activities to participants ranging from elementary school students to junior faculty to train the next generation of cancer researchers and clinicians. UVACCC strives to support diversity, equity and inclusion in all of its communities and activities. 

Virginia Commonwealth University Massey Cancer Center

VCU Massey Cancer Center is working toward a future without cancer – one revolutionary idea, one promising therapy and one life saved at a time. Through innovative research, patient care, education and community engagement, Massey is discovering, developing, delivering and teaching effective means to prevent, detect, treat and cure cancer and to making these advancements equally available to all. Founded in 1974, Massey was one of the country’s original cancer centers designated by the National Cancer Institute. It is the only cancer center in the Richmond metropolitan region and the first of only two in the state designated by the National Cancer Institute, placing it among the top 4 percent of cancer centers in the country.

Major strengths for Massey are in translating research discoveries into advances in treatment and prevention and in addressing cancer disparities to provide equal access to quality cancer care and screenings. Massey is leading the nation in establishing a 21st-Century model of equity for cancer research and care, in which the community is informing and partnering with Massey on its research to best address the cancer burden and disparities of those the cancer center serves, with a local focus but global impact.

Stone Tower Winery

Three generations of the Huber family have considered Hogback Mountain their home, celebrating some of their most cherished memories on the property. With a commitment to hospitality and the rich agrarian traditions of Western Loudoun, the Huber family hoped to share the beautiful views and property with others to enjoy their big life moments and preserve the land’s agricultural beauty.

Wine connoisseurs prior to entering the industry, Mike & Kristi Huber’s dedication to quality implored them to bring in top consultants in the industry to analyze the terroir of their 300 acre estate, driving us to plant classic vitis vinifera varietals. What our land is capable of producing is a beautiful blend of new and old world styles; complex, age-worthy wines that tell a story, stories that deserve to be shared. For the Hubers and the STW team, producing world class wines handcrafted from our estate vines is the ultimate goal.
