On January 26 2009, we lost Anthony Salisbury (AJ) to ASPS. AJ’s fiancée, family and friends remain committed to finding a cure for ASPS. In February 2009, they organized “Knockin’ Down ASPS”, the first fundraiser in AJ’s memory. This year, on Saturday, April 10, the second AJ memorial fundraiser, “Knockin’ Down ASPS” will take place. Donations will support the ongoing research studies of Dr. Glenn Dranoff at the Dana Farber Cancer Institute in Boston. Dr. Dranoff developed the first cancer vaccine (GVAX) clinical trial for ASPS patients. The results of this ongoing research will hopefully lead to the opening of another clinical trial. Please click the thumbnail below to read the full details. We thank the organizers of the fundraiser, and all of you who will participate and donate in favor of our efforts to find cure for ASPS.
