Dr. Steven Albelda, Dr. Christine Ciunci & The Penn Team
The Kathleen M. Rotz Lung Cancer Research Fund has been established to exclusively support Dr. Steven Albelda, Dr. Christine Ciunci & The Penn Team's lung cancer research, clinical trials and treatments taking place at the Abramson Cancer Center and Presbyterian Medical Center in developing remedies for advanced stage lung cancer and the ultimate cure of lung cancer. Current trends and projections indicate lung cancer will turn into a chronically managed disease by the year 2023. We believe the Fund can help bridge that gap.
We Believe The Cure Is Within !!!
We believe in Kathy's strength, determination and passion for life! We believe in the dedication, determination and passion of The Penn Team, and in their research to find a cure for this devastating disease.
