Cancer Research

The sad fact is that over the course of our lives, the scourge of cancer will affect almost every human being in some way. This insidious disease is extremely resistant to even advanced treatment and procedure remedies, which is why we feel that it is important to keep you informed on the latest developments in the fast-changing world of cancer research.

We have a personal experience with this issue, so the research depicted in the film Living Proof, about the development of the cancer drug Herceptin, for example, makes research something that we feel very deeply about. Our goal is to provide reliable information on cancer research and its many forms in a way that it will be helpful to all who seek an understanding of this almost epidemically growing disease. We are committed to working with sponsoring companies that provide financial contribution to research and thereby helping to end this horrific disease one day and eradicate it from the Earth. We feel that in this effort we are all connected. Cancer is not discriminatory, and when cancer strikes, nothing is more powerful than knowledge. And, THAT is An Honorable Cause!
