Raffi's Story

Raffi's Story

In December of 2004, our 4 year old son Raffi was diagnosed with a brain tumor. After three surgeries and several failed drug protocols, it was clear that the tumor was winning. Raffi's vision, language and motor skills deteriorated and a cascade of endocrine problems affected many vital functions.

Introducing Thomas Seyfried PhD and his book: "Cancer as a Metabolic Disease"

Not all scientists are created equal.  We are reminded of this right now as the Nobel Prize Committee is awarding Nobel Prizes to those few who push the boundaries of science -- that ephemeral edge, dividing the know from the unknown.  It is worth while to remember that many of those receiving that most coveted prize, have had to face various degrees of skepticism and derision throughout their careers -- until their ideas are ultimately proven correct in the end.

Research Update

In May of 2016 we awarded a substantial grant to Dr. Thomas Seyfried's lab at Boston College. The grant is funding the exploration of a cocktail of metabolic therapies in a metastatic mouse model. The experiment will test the combination of the ketogenic diet, glycolytic inhibitors, oxygen therapy, glutamine inhibitors, exogenous ketones, and other metabolic targeting therapies in combination.

Why the Name Change?

Why the Name Change?

We have decided to change the name of our foundation from The Single Cause Single Cure Foundation, to The Foundation for Metabolic Cancer Therapies. We think this name better reflects our ethos. It was pointed out that perhaps Single Cause Single Cure could be interpreted as encouraging patients to seek a single cure. That is not the case. Research has clearly shown that combinations of metabolic acting therapies are synergistic, and have outcomes that far exceed any single agent. We have granted research awarded to investigate synergist "cocktails" of metabolic therapies. The preclinical work is very encouraging. Our goal is to empower patients with these largely non-toxic therapies that may greatly enhance standard of care.

ABOUT US

By the time you read this sentence 2 people will have heard their doctor say the words:  you have cancer.

1 out of 3 will hear those words said to them in their lifetime.

Your donations will be directed to keeping doctors from every having to say those words, and if they do, the next words they say will be, “but it’s going to be all right”.

We will allocate funds swiftly, with a singular purpose – to cure cancer.

The unique quality of metabolic therapies is their broad efficacy.  While a given drug that targets mutations only has the potential to work on a fraction of the people with a specific type of cancer – drugs that target metabolism work on everyone with cancer, regardless of tissue of origin.

Even though this therapeutic approach has shown incredible preclinical promise, procuring funding is still difficult.  The vast majority of funding continues to be allocated to research focusing on single mutations, or narrow pathways that have proven, time and time again, to be largely irrelevant to the course of the disease.

Our focused approach is unique among foundations, allowing for collaborative synergy.  Not only do we directly fund research, but we will sponsor symposiums aware that innovation is born out of a collective effort.

We will allocate funds swiftly, with a singular purpose – to cure cancer.

WHY CHOOSE US

The goal of our foundation is to put ourselves out of business as quickly as possible.

Other foundations typically focus on one single cancer type; we focus on the one feature of cancer that pervades all cancer types – defective metabolism.

Sadly, because metabolic therapies like the ketogenic diet, hyperbaric oxygen, and re-purposed drugs are unable to be patented they sit on the side-lines.

Our goal is to fund the research that may demonstrate the efficacy of these therapies so they may be incorporated in to the oncology clinic--for everyone.
