Where The Funds Go

Funds raised by A Taste of Life will support OmniSeq Target™, a promising new genetic test developed at Roswell Park Cancer Institute. This one-of-a-kind diagnostic test was recently approved by the New York State Department of Health and Roswell Park is now using OmniSeq Target™ to begin genomic testing of lung cancer patients.

This groundbreaking test allows physicians to provide the most effective treatment recommendations based on a patient’s individual genetic makeup. Access to personalized, gene-targeted therapies can drastically improve patients’ outcomes and quality of life.

We are now raising funds to cover the cost of the test and make it available to patients who are in need of financial assistance. Together we can make a difference for all lung cancer patients both now and in the future.
