The Robert E. Reed Gastrointestinal Oncology Research Foundation (The Reed Foundation) was formed in 2002 while Robert Reed was battling pancreatic cancer. Mr. Reed felt strongly that creating a focus on GI cancer research and patient care would accelerate discovery of a cure.
Since its inception, the Foundation has significantly raised awareness and understanding about all gastrointestinal cancers. The first fundraising event, “Finish the Fight” Iron Bowl Kick Off Party, was held in November of 2004. This event serves the purpose of raising financial support to fund research and patient care at The University of Alabama at Birmingham under the direction of Dr. Martin J. Heslin and his team of research physicians.Read more
