Be Our 2020 Hero: A Message from Dr. Leonard


We know that COVID-19 is greatly affecting ALL of us, and we sincerely hope this note finds you healthy, in these difficult times.

For safety reasons, Doc’s Cancer Shootout has been canceled for 2020.

Please SAVE THE DATE Thursday, April 15th, 2021 for Doc’s Cancer Shootout! This will put us back on track with our spring fundraiser.

Because we are not able to come together to raise funds for the Leonard/Saltzman Cancer Research Lab, we are asking for your help to bridge the gap to fund the lab until the 2021 spring fundraiser.

Donations can be sent to the address above or made online here.

We would appreciate your gift in any amount to help fund the lab this year. It is by the generosity of our donors like you that we can fund the cancer research lab another year. Please BE OUR HERO and support this cancer research.

Together, we can reach the goal of $125,000, which becomes $250,000 with the matching funds offered by Hubbard Broadcasting Inc, to successfully fund the Leonard/Saltzman Cancer Research Lab for another year. We are already part way there as some of you have already donated cash, in kind products or services, Corporate Sponsorships, or had registered for the 2020 fundraiser. THANK YOU.

Remember, 100% of funds raised go directly to the cancer research as Dr. Leonard personally covers all administrative costs to the cancer fund.

The cancer research lab has been able to continue the important work in the lab during COVID-19. They are currently in the end, cure-ative stage of developing an innovative cancer therapy. As the primary source of funding for the lab, the Arnold S. Leonard Cancer Research Fund is vital to the success of the research lab and your contributions are meaningful gifts to ensure the completion of Dr. Leonard’s lifelong cancer therapy project, and help bring the world this innovative cancer treatment therapy that is proving in the lab to be highly effective while producing no side effects.

The side effects of current cancer therapies do not allow therapies to be applied aggressively enough to save the lives of most patients. So, the most important work now in the Leonard/Saltzman lab is minimizing toxicity by creating the “best bug” and optimizing this “bug” for tumor targeting. This is accomplished by hundreds of experiments with different combinations of the genetically engineered materials. The lab is working hard to push the science to reach the very best combination of optimal tumor targeting with minimal toxicity.

There are brighter days ahead, and the need for a non-toxic cancer therapy has not diminished as we look toward the other side of side of this current health crisis. We hope you will consider helping us during these difficult times.

Sincerely Yours,

Arnold S. Leonard, M.D., Ph.D.
