Salute! Hartford

Join us for a special 1920s inspired Salute! to LFS patients
The Li-Fraumeni Syndrome Association (LFSA) presents the 3rd annual Salute! Benefit dedicated to supporting the critical research required to raise awareness, provide support, and improve the health of patients.

People diagnosed with Li-Fraumeni syndrome (LFS) live with cancer or a potential cancer diagnosis every day of their lives, often beginning in childhood and frequently with multiple occurrences. Your contribution to Salute! Hartford will help to ensure that funding will be available to continue the research necessary to improve and prolong the lives of LFS patients worldwide.

Proceeds for this event will specifically help fund LFS cancer research initiatives such as the feasibility of detecting circulating tumor DNA in the blood, the development and interpretation of the only familial cancer database, the effectiveness of whole body MRIs for early cancer detection, the potential application of elephant cancer resistance for human cancer prevention, and much more!

Guest Speaker

Dr. Joshua Schiffman

We are pleased to announce our guest speaker, Dr. Joshua Schiffman of the Huntsman Cancer Institute (HCI)!  Dr. Schiffman is conducting groundbreaking research on the potential of elephant cancer resistance in fighting human cancers.  His work in genetic risks and pediatric cancers has contributed to the landmark study demonstrating that early cancer surveillance in LFS patient families can significantly improve overall survival.  He is also studying circulating tumor DNA as a method of early detection of cancers in LFS patients.  Among his many titles and responsibilities, Dr. Schiffman is Medical Director at the High Risk Pediatric Cancer Clinic at the HCI and serves on the LFS Association medical advisory board.
