We are excited that we are able to make the Health Festival at Mondawmin Mall an annual event. So mark your calendars for the next Health Festival at Mondawmin Mall to be held on Saturday, March 21, 2015 from 11:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. The Health Festival focuses on the under-served community where statistically colon cancer diagnosis and death rates are alarmingly high.
Dr. Joel Fuhrman, our nutrionist, presents convincing evidence about the role of saturated fats in promoting cancer. See his latest article for advice on changing to a more healthy diet.
Supported by the Susan Cohan Colon Cancer Foundation (“Susie’s Cause”) through a generous contribution of $750,000 from the family of Dr. Bozhong Zhang, Mr. Chen Zhang, and Ms. Li Yuan, the Kimmel Cancer Center at Johns Hopkins has launched an exciting cutting edge colon cancer vaccine research program. This clinical research program is further testing vaccine-based immunotherapies in combination with DNA hypomethylating agents as new ways to treat colorectal cancer. The funds that the Susan Cohan Colon Cancer Foundation and the Zhang family contributed are being used to support the production of a new clinical lot of the vaccine at Johns Hopkins’ Cell and Gene Therapy Facility.
Charlotte Bohn is a wife and mother of two young children and a colon cancer survivor. Her fight against this horrible disease almost overwhelmed her but now through her music she is not only thriving but working to support Susie's Cause.
