Piper Cancer Center, and the latest research and clinical trials.
Formed in 2017, in collaboration with HonorHealth and Arizona Center for Cancer Care, the HonorHealth Virginia G.

You and your caregivers can rest assured that you will receive the highest quality of care and support from our leading-edge team.
Specialized cancer care
There are hundreds of types of cancer, and they're usually named for the places where they form. The most common types of cancer are breast, colorectal, lung and prostate. Other common types include brain, bladder, bone, endometrial, esophageal, head and neck, leukemia, kidney, melanoma, neuroendocrine, non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, ovarian, pancreatic and thyroid.
At the HonorHealth Virginia G. Piper Cancer Care Network, we treat every kind of adult cancer, but our network has dedicated programs to treat:
- Breast cancers
- Gynecologic cancers such as ovarian and uterine cancers
- Gastrointestinal cancers such as colorectal cancers
- Lung and esophageal cancer
- Blood cancers such as leukemia and hematologic diseases
- Melanoma and skin cancer
- Metastatic cancers
- Brain cancer
- Pancreatic cancer
- Soft tissue and bone sarcomas
- Urinary tract and male genital tract cancers such as prostate cancer
Your cancer treatment options
Cancer treatment methods vary based on the type of cancer, the biology driving it and where it’s located in your body. With small tumors, surgery is often best. Larger cancers may require additional therapies such as radiation and chemotherapy. If your cancer has spread too far, then more traditional treatments such as chemotherapy may be your best option.
You and your doctors will consider:
- Chemotherapy, Immunotherapy, Targeted therapies
- Clinical trials
- Bone marrow, Stem cell transplant and CAR-T cell therapy
Your medical oncologist (a doctor specially trained to diagnose and treat cancer) will lead your care team. Your doctor will carefully consider your situation and preferences as they decide on a treatment plan and may coordinate treatment with other specialists. Each case is as unique as you are. It’s our goal to provide you with the highest quality of life for as long as possible, while we work to restore your health—never losing hope.
Our oncologists are routinely available within 48 hours. We’ll surround you with a team of experts within days of your initial diagnosis or request for services.
Is medical science making progress against cancer?
Although the prevalence of cancers may feel sobering, the good news is that:
- The overall cancer death rate from all cancers fell 25% from 1991 to 2014, according to the American Cancer Society.
- The five-year survival rate for all cancers combined is about 66%, according to the National Cancer Institute.
- The number of people living beyond a cancer diagnosis — almost 14.5 million in 2014 — is expected to rise to almost 19 million by 2024.
As a patient at the HonorHealth Virginia G. Piper Cancer Care Network, you’ll have access to leading-edge clinical trials and cancer treatment through our partnership with the HonorHealth Research Institute.
