Since 2006, we have donated over $1,500,000 to cancer research and to crucial services for those fighting cancer.


Our Mission

The Pano Koumantaros Cancer Research Fund was created to fight cancer and alleviate the struggles of the patient’s journey by providing equipment, research and treatment to those in need.

Our history
