ERIE, Pa., April 14, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- In an effort to match last year's $250,000 Pepsi Refresh Everything grant, the Kanzius Cancer Research Foundation (KCRF) launched the "Repeat the Wave" Campaign on April 1 raising over $40,000 and adding more than 4,000 new Facebook fans in thirteen days. Until April 30, KCRF is increasing awareness and raising additional funds for research of the Kanzius Non-Invasive Radiowave Cancer Treatment by asking the public to "like" them on Facebook.
An anonymous donor has agreed to donate one dollar for each new KCRF Facebook fan as well as match fifty cents for each dollar donated to the Foundation. After a Facebook user likes the page, they are then encouraged to "Spread the Wave" by inviting all of their Facebook friends to also "like" the Kanzius Cancer Research Foundation page. The campaign urges KCRF supporters to use a special landing page, www.RepeatTheWave.com, and invite their social networks to spread the wave just like last April, when Internet users and Facebook fans voted KCRF's project as the most "refreshing idea" during the Pepsi Refresh Everything contest. Since the start of this campaign, KCRF has increased support on local, national and global levels.
"A year ago, we embarked on a journey to 'Spread the Wave' and thanks to overwhelming community support, we won the Pepsi contest resulting in a grant of $250,000 to educate new audiences; this has truly transformed our foundation," said Mark A. Neidig, Sr., executive director of Kanzius Foundation. "Today, I am once again humbled by the tremendous support for the 'Repeat the Wave' campaign. No doubt, everyone has been touched by cancer in some way. The 'Kanzius Way' of treating cancer non-invasively and without side effects is why we won the grant last year and today, this timely message is still refreshing and worth repeating!"
