Gateway for Cancer Research has become my number one charitable cause in recent years. The fact that 99 cents out of every dollar donated goes directly towards research is huge because that means that my donation is making a difference in the lives of cancer patients, rather than professional fund-raisers. Gateway's focus on translational cancer research is also appealing because it means that the research I'm helping to fund is going to benefit patients today rather than years down the road.
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.
Gateway for Cancer Research is a fantastic organization that is dedicated to finding a cure for cancer. They fund research and trials that has direct impacts for cancer patients, now! Gateway is unique because 99 cents of every dollar raised goes directly to research. It is very rewarding to know that your donations can make a direct impact on finding a cure for cancer.
Contributors to Gateway for Cancer Research are connected to real life patients and their doctors. Nearly every penny collected funds innovative research that involve patient trials. This means those afflicted with cancer receive hope today - not just hope they are helping future patients.
Gateway For Cancer Research is an amazing organization. 99 cents out of every dollar donated goes directly towards research protocols which make a difference in the lives of patients. Gateway funds translational cancer research - moving ideas from the laboratory to the bedside of patients in desperate need of treatment options.
