Gateway for Cancer Research
August 1, 2009
I joined Cancer Treatment Centers of America as an Oncology Information Specialist in June 2009. I had the privilege of meeting Lynette Bisconti, the President of Gateway for Cancer Research. She explained that she is a cancer survivor and passionate advocate of patient-centered cancer research that offers new and innovative treatment options to cancer patients as quickly as possible. Gateway focuses on cancer research that can have an impact on cancer patients today as well as 10 years down the road. The type of research they fund bridges the gap between the laboratory and other larger studies, keeping cancer research progressing toward a cure.
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
kind-hearted individuals who identify and pursue new and promising clinical studies and progressive treatments leveraging cutting edge medical technologies and practices.
If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
significantly contribute vital information in the search for a cure to all types of cancer and continue to impact patients immediately.
When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
