About Hope Funds for Cancer Research:

The Hope Funds for Cancer Research was formed in 2006 to establish a funding vehicle that would take a rational scientific, medical, and investment approach to making grants for the most interesting and promising research efforts to address the most difficult-to-treat cancers, including pancreatic, lung, liver, sarcomas, esophageal, brain, gastric, and ovarian cancers, as well as rare leukemias, lymphomas and MDS. These cancers are insidiously aggressive illnesses that kill most of their victims within months, even with aggressive chemotherapy. The Trustees of the Hope Funds for Cancer Research believe that funding young, innovative researchers will lead to breakthroughs in these areas and increase life expectancy for those with these types of cancers. The Hope Funds for Cancer Research is a 509 (a)(1) charity under 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Service's code. For more information, please visit our website at http://www.hope-funds.org/. Please follow Hope Funds on Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/pages/Hope-Funds/214081970235.

Hope Funds for Cancer Research will hold another in its continuing series of panel discussions on translational cancer research at the Newport, Rhode Island Redwoods Library and Athenaeum on August 7th, 2011 at 5:00 pm.
