both patients and health professionals. It includes both live and archived
webcasts of recorded interviews, medical presentations from various venues
and original, informative articles.
The Lymphoma Research Foundation of America was formed to promote and support
high quality research resulting in more effective treatments and the ultimate
cure for lymphoma. Scientists believe that finding the cure for lymphoma
will help open the door to finding cures for many other cancers including
those of the breast, prostate, colon, and lung. LRFA was founded in 1991 by
Ellen Glesby Cohen, who passed away earlier this year. Her experience
battling non-Hodgkin's lymphoma led her to fully appreciate the pressing need
for better and safer cancer treatments. Over the years, the Foundation has
put together a significant group of concerned business and community leaders
and lymphoma specialists who are dedicated to supporting research. To date,
LRFA has given close to $3 million dollars to fund 92 medical research
projects at cancer centers and universities across the country.
