The Jesse & Julie Rasch Foundation has engaged Dr. Mackenzie and his team to examine the anti-cancer properties of over 30 promising naturally occurring compounds, particularly within the context of Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. For those compounds showing the most promise, they will do further experimentation to determine efficacy and mechanisms of action.
