Canary Foundation and the Thomas G. Labrecque Foundation Launch a New Lung Cancer Early Detection Initiative
Date:11/15/2007

rch. While almost $10 billion is spent annually on cancer research in the United States, the vast majority is allocated to developing new cancer treatments and caring for patients. Surprisingly, little funding is available to researchers investigating new ways to prevent cancer, or to detect it at its earliest, curable stages. Canary Foundation intends to affect this balance by increasing funding and by facilitating coordination among researchers and research institutions. Canary Foundation provides funding to researchers who are engaged in developing cancer early detection technologies and protocols. Specifically, Canary Foundation is supporting researchers working towards a standardized family of biomarker signatures for the effective and accurate early detection of all forms of cancer.

About Thomas G. Labrecque Foundation

The Thomas G. Labrecque Foundation is committed to preventing lung cancer through education and research. At the age of 62, Tom Labrecque, the former Chairman of The Chase Manhattan Bank, a never-smoker, died from lung cancer eight weeks after being diagnosed. Tom's family and friends started the Thomas G. Labrecque Foundation in 2002 to fight the #1 cancer killer in the United States. The Foundation has a two-pronged mission, to fund effective research and to educate people about lung cancer. In the process we want to break some of the stigmas associated with the disease, since many people believe it is a smokers' disease. For more information about the Thomas G. Labrecque Foundation, please visit http://www.tglfoundation.com.
