DID YOU KNOW...
Did you know that elephants have 40 cancer-fighting proteins in their DNA which means they rarely get cancer? Did you know that humans only have two cancer-fighting proteins in their DNA? Kneaders Bakery and Café is proud to be part of the pioneering research of Dr. Joshua Schiffman, world-renowned oncologist, hematologist, teen-cancer survivor, and respected cancer researcher at Huntsman Cancer Institute. His research on elephant DNA is inspiring cancer research innovations that may unlock the answers to new treatments, better outcomes, and ultimately ending cancer in children and adults. His research and that of his colleagues at HCI is bringing new hope to the fight against cancer for everyone.
Learning that our grandson, Tanner, had been diagnosed with Hodgkin lymphoma in 2015 was heartbreaking. Where there used to be laughter, sports, and activities with friends, Tanner’s typical teenage life turned into overnight chemotherapy sessions at the hospital, painful radiation treatments, and doctor appointments. Every day of Tanner’s life was spent trying to survive and every day we were faced with the real possibility that he might not win his fight. Although Tanner is now cancer-free, we will never forget the profound challenge of surviving an overwhelming and rare disease. We are proud to support the monumental research of Dr. Schiffman.
