Sorry Dr. Evil, but the Chris4Life Colon Cancer Foundation beat you by $100k and while yes, there are certainly doctors involved with this $1.1 million, they aren’t “evil” doctors.Â Not even a month ago, the 2 1/2 year old charity pledged this significant amount to to the Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center at Georgetown University (Dr. John Marshall and his team), which also happens to be the center that treated Christine Sapienza, from beginning (when her routine colonoscopy found her to be in the late stages of colon cancer) to end (two and a half years) during her fight against against the disease.
It’s no surprise that Lombardi is the first for this type of pledge from Chris4Life; expect more great news as the organization continues to expand nationally and thank you for your support!
