Susie's Cause volunteer President David Cohan took the opportunity of the annual 5K Run & Family Walk to announce that the Susan Cohan Colon Cancer Foundation and the Zhang Family have made a significant gift to Johns Hopkins Hospital to further research on colon cancer. Mr. Cohan presented a check for $250,000 to Lei Zheng, M.D., Ph.D., Assistant Professor of Oncology and Surgery at the Sidney Kimmel Comprehensive Cancer Center. The funds will help support a clinical research program that will test vaccine-based immunotherapy and DNA hypomethylating agents as new ways to treat colorectal cancer.
