Robert Packard Foundation for Als Research
Late in 1999, a small group of scientists, patients and philanthropists met at Johns Hopkins to change the status quo for research on amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). Convinced that existing ALS research suffered from a piecemeal approach, which needed focus and a streamlined path to a cure, the group formed the Center for ALS Research at Johns Hopkins. With multimillion dollar funding from respected sources â first the Baltimore Orioles, followed by The Emily Davie and Joseph S. Kornfeld Foundation and the Robert Packard Foundation â the Center opened in February 2000 at Johns Hopkins Universityâs medical school campus in Baltimore, Maryland. In 2002, a considerable donation from the then-named Robert Packard Foundation, in California, prompted the Centerâs name change to its present, Robert Packard Center for ALS Research at Johns Hopkins. Today, more than 40 scientists from Hopkins, other universities and biotech companies worldwide now collaborate at this Center without walls. Packard Center ALS research underlies the major existing theories on ALS. Its grantees are the most published in ALS in respected scientific journals

Since its founding in 1979, The Skin Cancer Foundation has set the standard for educating the public and the medical profession about skin cancer, its prevention by means of sun protection, the need for early detection, and prompt, effective treatment. It is the only international organization devoted solely to combating the world's most common cancer, now occurring at epidemic levels. Skin cancer is the most common cancer in the world, with more than 13 million cases diagnosed annually. One of every three cancers diagnosed is a skin cancer, and up to 65,161 people die every year from skin cancer. The incidence of melanoma continues to rise at a rate faster than that of any of the seven most common cancers. Each year in the U.S. there are more new cases of skin cancer than the combined incidence of cancers of the breast, prostate, lung and colon. Almost 9,000 people die from melanoma in the U.S. every year. Nonmelanoma cancers such as basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma have reached critical levels, with squamous cell carcinoma killing 2,500 people each year. Ninety percent of nonmelanoma skin cancers are associated with exposure to ultraviolet radiation from the sun. A person's risk for skin cancer doubles if he or she has had five or more sunburns. Just one blistering sunburn in childhood more than doubles a Caucasian's chances of developing melanoma later in life. However, the incidence of skin cancer can be dramatically reduced through education, behavior modification, and early detection. Skin cancer is primarily a lifestyle disease which is why The Skin Cancer Foundation emphasizes public awareness and education campaigns.
