Television Actor Who Has Portrayed a Doctor and an Investigator Lends Support to Fundraiser for the Toughest Children's Cancer
Date:5/6/2008

NEW YORK, May 6 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Melina Kanakaredes portrayed a doctor in her hit show, Providence. On CSI: NY she's a relentless investigator. So it's fitting she serve as mistress of ceremonies for the Children's Brain Tumor Foundation 6th Annual Dream & Promise Gala that raises funds to support medical investigation into one of the toughest and most challenging children's cancer; brain and spinal cord tumors. The Gala will take place tonight at 6:30 p.m. at the Marriott Marquis in Times Square in New York City.

The Gala this year honors three individuals who have made substantive contributions to children facing medical challenges. Dr. Larry Kun will receive the Pioneer Award for Pediatric Radiation Oncology to honor his efforts at St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. Dr. Thomas Koestler, Executive Vice President, Schering-Plough Corporation and President of the Schering-Plough Research Institute, along with Peter M.

Dr. Koestler guides the strategic direction of product development programs and oversees the movement of projects through the discovery, development, registration and launch phases at Schering-Plough. Mr. Kash sits on the boards of several not-for-profit organizations, including Keren-Or, which supports blind and multi-handicapped children.

Speaking about his award, Dr. Kun remarked, "I am delighted to participate in the Children's Brain Tumor Foundation Benefit, recognizing the central role the CBTF has played in both national advocacy and support for research in childhood brain tumors. I am truly honored by the Foundation's recognition and look forward to joining those who have committed considerable time and effort in promoting the goals of the CBTF."

Stuart Essig, CEO and President of Integra LifeSciences and last year's corporate honoree comments, "I am honored to be a co-chair of the Foundation's 2008 Gala and am very proud of the s
