Our Canary Champions are fighters and believers in our cause. To us, they are simply awesome people who have stepped up their involvement. They are helping us get the funding we need to really make the Canary approach work.
Whether that means helping us bring underfunded studies to clinical trial, making other connections to industry and academia, or ensuring that we always attract the brightest scientific minds so we can stay at the forefront of early cancer detection research.
The Spungen family made a gift in honor of their mother when she struggled with ovarian cancer and when they lost her to the disease. Having the BRCA gene, Debbi is strongly dedicated to Canary’s mission with its focus on the development of cancer early detection tests for those, like herself, who are in high-risk groups. Debbi and her family believe that they should be involved in the non-profits to which they give support. She volunteers at Canary Foundation events and helping with office projects.
