Prezi Fight Strong
John Cleland Testis Cancer Fellowship Fund
Approximately 39.5% of men & women in the U.S. will be diagnosed with cancer at some point during their lifetime (NCI).
In 1974, John Cleland (left) was one of the first patients to receive experimental chemotherapy with cisplatin + vinblastine + bleomycin (PVB) to treat his advanced testis cancer. He became the first person in the world to be cured with this regimen.
Gifts will support fellowships for trainees conducting testis cancer research in the Division of Hematology/Oncology in the Department of Medicine at the Indiana University School of Medicine.
Presidential Exteriors has started the Prezi Fight Strong campaign to bring awareness and raise donations to fight against cancer. Cancer has affected everyone in one way or another and has directly impacted our company. Our very own CEO, Christopher Edwards, was diagnosed with testicular cancer in December of 2020. He endured weeks of chemotherapy which not only weakened him mentally and physically, but failed to work.
After being told to prepare for the worst, he sought help from Dr. Larry Einhorn who helped him beat it and become cancer-free. Dr. Einhorn chaired studies in the area of testicular cancer that led to the FDA approval of cisplatin, etoposide, and ifosfamide. In addition, his groups conducted pivotal studies that led to the approval of both gemcitabine and pemetrexed in non-small cell lung cancer.
All it takes is ONE dollar, ONE share, ONE person to make a difference.
