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.
