We believe the current “standard” of cancer research doesn’t work; instead, we focus our efforts on funding research by treatment innovators whose work takes into account the entire patient experience, or uses a multi-disciplinary approach. Successful Gateway-funded studies focus on innovative cancer treatments that can change the lives of patients. Every year we fund studies in many areas of cancer research, and in two decades we have raised more than $20 million for research.
The president of The Gateway for Cancer Research, Lynette Bisconti is a 13 year breast cancer survivor. Just two weeks after learning she was pregnant, she was diagnosed with breast cancer. She decided to become as educated as she could about her disease. She had an aggressive cancer that had spread to several lymph nodes and was advised to undergo chemotherapy and radiation and advised to terminate the pregnancy.

Instead, she found a facility whose philosophy includes a whole body approach to cancer care. On August 31, 1998, she gave birth to a healthy baby boy named Frankie and today, Lynette remains free of disease. In October 2008, Lynette became the President of The Gateway for Cancer Research, a 501 (c)(3) not-for-profit organization dedicated to curing cancer through funding patient-centered clinical studies.
