• Welcome

    Our mission is to decrease the death rate from cancer while enhancing patient quality of life.

    FCRE envisions a future in which deaths from prostate cancer are greatly reduced among all populations.

About FCRE

FCRE was founded in 2002 by Charles E. “Snuffy” Myers, MD, a noted prostate cancer oncologist, scientist, and author, and his wife, Rose Sgarlat Myers, PT, PhD. Dr. Snuffy Myers began his focus on prostate cancer in 1989 after spending many years developing agents for cancer and HIV treatments at the National Cancer Institute.

FCRE’s educational goals are to acquaint the general public, cancer patients, and healthcare professionals with recent advances in cancer prevention, diagnosis, and treatment.  Underlying everything we do is an understanding that incorporating the Quad of a Mediterranean Heart Healthy Diet, a daily exercise program, daily meditative practice, and a sound medical treatment program will improve the quality of life and outcomes for cancer patients everywhere.

Many of our patients responded favorably to these drugs.
