Doctor discussing Cancer Treatment

In 1994, we tested Jake D. Phillips, a lung cancer patient with advanced disease. Although we were not able to cure his cancer, we found a treatment that gave him added time and value to his life — a fact for which his sister, Loretta Stamos (mother of actor John Stamos), was forever thankful.

To show her appreciation and help others fighting cancer, Loretta created the Vanguard Cancer Foundation to support Dr. Nagourney's research and treatment of cancer patients.
