As an affiliate of The Bonnie J. Addario Lung Cancer Foundation, The Joan Gaeta Lung Cancer Fund is proud to support The Addario Lung Cancer Medical Institute (ALMCI) with 85% of our net proceeds. We continue to be very excited about ALCMI, the progress they have made, and the progress they will continue to make in the fight against lung cancer.
ALCMI looks forward to launching many new innovative projects next year to advance their research initiatives, including the Epidemiologic Features in Young People with Lung Cancer, a follow-up to their Genomics of Young Lung Study, and their Biospecimen Big Data Project.
As a follow-up to their Genomics of Young Lung Study, they plan to examine the Epidemiologic Features in Young People with Lung Cancer to understand the unique pathology and drivers of this disease in those under 40 years of age. They also look forward to launching their Biospecimen Big Data Project to create a centralized repository of donated patient tissue, blood, etc. and patient-reported information housed under one data umbrella. This first-of-its-kind data bank would allow patients and clinicians, regardless of where they live, to participate and opt-in to share information to help determine effective treatments, standard of care, and to establish a platform for patients to share their experiences. Another exciting collaboration involves clinical development of an anti-cancer vaccine that essentially “trains” a given patient’s immune system to potentially recognize and target his/her specific cells. These are just a sampling of the many innovative initiatives under development.
