     Ukrainian Institute of Cancer and world ranked tennis player Sergiy Stakhovsky have joined forces in the battle against cancer! The fruit of this collaboration is ACE THE CANCER FUND which was born out of the realization of the need to make a difference in the lives of people affected by this disease. Since early childhood, Sergiy has been sensitive to this issue as his father is a Professor of Oncology and now works at the Institute.


      Treating cancer effectively isn’t just about the right attitude and knowledge, but also about expensive radiotherapy, chemotherapy and surgery. These are the areas that Sergiy decided to target: starting May 5, 2010, he will donate $5 per every ace he hits when playing ATP World Tour tournaments.


     You can also join in and support ATCF by making a donation, participating in various fundraising initiatives or buying products with the Fund’s logo.






Situated in the busy city of Kyiv, Ukraine, the Ukrainian Institute of Cancer (UNCI), founded in 2008, is noted for excellence in cancer care and all staff have reputations as being the best in their field. The Institute is directed by Ihor Shchepotin.

mission statement:

“Sergiy Stakhovsky believes that cancer treatment should never be stopped or slowed down because of lack of funding. As a result, Ace The Cancer Fund supports financially the Ukrainian Institute of Cancer – the nation’s leading cancer center. Given the changing times and the rising cost of healthcare, Sergiy’s dream is to make the difference that it takes to make that fight for survival a better one.”
