About Us

christinaChristina Camardese Savage passed away on January 27, 2009 after a courageous ten year battle with cancer. Christinas Garden was created in August of 2009 to honor the memory of Christina, whose strength, courage, humor and love for life inspired so many.

Christina's Garden is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. To assist cancer patients and their families on a national level, Christina's Garden has developed a free cancer care website. The website provides cancer patients and their loved ones with information and links to valuable resources, including organizations that provide financial assistance, support services, organizational tools and tips for loved ones to help. There are many resources available to cancer patients. However, these resources are sometimes difficult to find. ManageCancer provides easy access to these resources so that those in need can take full advantage of what is available to them.

Site will soon provide cancer patients and their loved ones with links to resources that are available in the Valley.

Christina's Garden has partnered with another nonprofit organization to bring a cancer wellness center to the Valley. We are so proud to be working with the people of Yellow Brick Place to create a center that will provide free non-medical services to cancer patients and their families. We are currently looking for a location. When open, the center will provide free services such as: a resource library, support groups, meditation, yoga, massage and much more! This facility is so needed in the Valley and we are so excited to be a part of this project! Learn more about our friends at Yellow Brick Place by visiting Site.

The structural analyzes show a likely explanation for the loss of toxicity: The substitution of the amino acid glutamine to glutamate in the catalytic domain of the toxin does not alter the overall structure significantly but it increase the distance between a zinc atom and a water molecule essential for the splitting process by a mere 0.6 angstroms . The subtle change in the electrostatic properties of the molecule to the active site interferes so that it does not cleave the target protein.
