ERIE, Pa. (AP) _ A cancer research foundation plans to give more than $1 million to cancer-treatment facilities in Texas, Florida and Pennsylvania.
An Erie County judge and the Pennsylvania Attorney General’s Office have approved plans to distribute the remainder of the Kanzius Cancer Research Foundation’s assets. The money will fund human trials of a noninvasive cancer treatment that uses radio waves to destroy cancerous cells.
The Erie Times-News reports (http://bit.ly/1EUtNRW ) more than $10 million was donated to the Erie-based nonprofit for research using the Kanzius Noninvasive Radiowave Cancer Device.
Texas’s Baylor College of Medicine and Florida’s Lee Memorial Health System Foundation will both receive $250,000. The rest will be given to the Erie Community Foundation which will be distributed to the Regional Cancer Center in Erie and other institutions qualified for human trials.
