Swim Across America, Inc., an organization of volunteer swimmers and friends and family members of cancer patients that raises money for cancer research through swim events, has funded a laboratory at the Johns Hopkins Kimmel Cancer Center headed by oncologist Luis Diaz, M.D.
Swim Across America 2014 Event Recap:
In 2014, two new clinical trials were launched. One uses a combination of a conventional chemotherapy drug at very low doses to extend the lives of patients with pancreatic cancer and the second involves a new immune target that provides new options for patients whose cancers have not responded to existing treatments.
Because of the generosity and dedication of hundreds of swimmers and volunteers, our team of researchers and clinicians are forging ahead against the toughest, most advanced cancers.
