Northwestern Region supports research that could lead to a cure for cancer
At a September 22 Northwestern Region Executive Committee meeting, PSEA members representing locals throughout the Region were joined by a special guest with a special message: the Kanzius Cancer Research Foundation is testing new technology that could cure cancer. That technology is non-invasive. It does not harm healthy cells surrounding the cancer. It has no side effects, and has a 100% cure rate in destroying human cancer cells in live animals.
Mark A. Neidig, Executive Director of the Foundation, was invited by Northwestern Region PSEA leadership to address a crowd of nearly 100 regarding efforts to raise funding to begin human trials for the Kanzius Non-Invasive Radio Wave Cancer Treatment within the next three years. Developed by Erie broadcasting pioneer John A. Kanzius, who appeared on 60 Minutes before his death of leukemia in February, the technology begins with gold nanoparticles – 1/70,000th the width of a human hair – that attach themselves only to cancer cells. After those nanoparticles attach, the Kanzius treatment uses radio waves at a specific frequency to resonate the nanoparticles to destroy the cancer cells with no damage to surrounding tissue.
With the first flights of human trials being proposed at M.D. Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, TX (headquarters of lead researcher Dr. Steven Curley) and at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine under Dr. David Geller, the Foundation is raising the necessary funding to receive FDA approval, which is where PSEA Northwestern Region comes in.
“We wanted to do something positive as a Region,” said Northwestern Region President Mary Lou DeLuca, a member of the Erie Education Association. “And this was the perfect opportunity. Cancer touches the lives of so many of our students, our members, and our families; we felt we owe it to each of them to support what could be a cure.”
PSEA Vice President Mike Crossey, who also attended the meeting, added, “When you really break it down, all of our members -- whether EA, ESP, Higher Ed, or Healthcare – do one thing: they improve the lives of others. To see the entire NW Region PSEA support such an exciting cause is just a natural extension of that mission and I wish them and the Foundation great luck in their endeavor."
Region members aim to develop curriculum components in science, math, social studies, and other subjects exploring how the treatment works and how cancer affects families. In addition to curriculum components, which can be used to supplement fundraising drives in schools, Region members plan to host a display table at the PSEA House of Delegates in Pittsburgh this winter to “Spread the Wave to Cure Cancer.”
