A New Song written specially for Hope For Health
Mamma Tongue - World Music Band
Build a coalition to help the medical community win the war against disease.
It takes more than hope to cure disease, it takes attitude, determination, will, research, money and information. Patients especially need information from other patients, and doctors who have dealt with similar situations. Hope for Health is building a referal network to provide this kind of information. The Hope for Health Research Foundation was incorporated by Dr. Erle Strauss on October 1, 2000 for the purpose of supporting research to identify a cure for lymphoma. Dr. Strauss, whose life was dramatically affected by lymphoma cancer, wanted to pay back the dedicated and caring health care professionals involved in cancer treatment and prevention.
Hope for Health has supported Dr. Neil Berinstein's Advanced Therapeutics program at the Toronto Sunnybrook Regional Cancer Centre, where a state-of-the-art translation research program aimed at developing better treatment for patients with cancer by exploring the use of immunotherapeutic approaches.
The Foundation's interactive web site serves to further communication between doctor and patient and allows visitors to support medical research. The goals of Hope for Health are to receive contributions and to maintain a fund to provide gifts of capital and income to qualified recipients who are directly involved in research into prevention, treatment and cure of cancers and other diseases such as SARS.
