John Thomas Financial Supports Gabrielle's Angel Foundation for Cancer Research

Public Invited to Join John Thomas Financial Team in Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Light the Night Walk

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - September 28, 2010) -  John Thomas Financial, a full service broker-dealer offering client-centric retail brokerage and investment banking services, continues its commitment to the fight against cancer with a donation to Gabrielle's Angel Foundation for Cancer Research. 

Gabrielle's Angel Foundation for Cancer Research is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to encourage the development of more effective therapies for patients with leukemia, lymphoma and related blood cancers. The Foundation funds innovative clinical or basic science research that will lead to novel therapeutic approaches that could replace, or be used in combination with, existing effective therapies. Just last year, the Foundation announced twelve medical research awards in the amount of $2.7 million.

Gabrielle's Angel Foundation for Cancer Research is named after Gabrielle Rich, a beautiful young actress and writer who lost her life to acute myelogenous leukemia (AML) in 1996 at age 27. Gabrielle bravely fought the debilitating disease, acting in eight plays and seven films, and writing a screenplay during a period of remission.

"John Thomas Financial is committed to making substantial contributions to the global fight against cancer. It has become a focus of our firm both philanthropically and professionally to support ongoing efforts to find effective treatments for cancer, which claims more than half a million Americans every year," said John Thomas Financial CEO Thomas Belesis.

In addition to committing financial resources to the cause, John Thomas Financial CEO Thomas Belesis will attend the foundation's Angel Ball on October 21, 2010 to support and raise awareness for the cause. Those who are interested in donating to Gabrielle's Angel Foundation or attending the Angel Ball can find more information on the Foundation's website

On October 14, 2010, a week prior to The Angel Ball, John Thomas Financial employees, clients, family, and friends will be walking across the Brooklyn Bridge united in the fight against blood cancer at the 2010 Light the Night Walk. The JTF Team invites you to join the group in the event.
