Family members and friends eulogized John Kanzius at a funeral service Feb. 23 at the Episcopal Cathedral of St. Paul. The retired television and radio broadcasting executive, 64, earned worldwide attention in recent years for inventing a radio-frequency generator that is being tested as a cancer treatment device. Kanzius died Feb. 18 of pneumonia, a side effect of recent chemotherapy treatments for his rare, incurable cancer. About 250 people, including family, friends, current and former WJET-TV staff members, and a number of public officials filled the cathedral nearly to capacity.

The exact total raised Thursday night during our three hour telethon was $140,224. The three Lilly Broadcasting stations - WICU, WSEE, and the CW combined talent and resources and made this happen. "I am overwhelmed. Before I got here to the WICU studios tonight, 22 states and 3 countries have contributed to the telethon based on e-mails," said Mark Neidig, Executive Director of the Kanzius Cancer Research Foundation. Our newsroom played host to members of the Kanzius Cancer Research Foundation as well as the many selfless volunteers who manned the phone lines we set up. At the Ambassador, we had 20 phones set-up, and the phones began to ring early. Many of our on-air personalities spent hours accepting checks and changing the number boards, it kept on increasing. Our News Director Julie Eisenman overwhelmed by the public's response for the second year in a row. "The support we are seeing from the Erie community we are seeing is phenomenal I'm not surprised Erie's a great and they always, always step up when there's a need and this is such a great cause," said Eisenman.

"5/22/2007 Retired TV station owner and broadcast engineer, John Kanzius, wasn't looking for an answer to the energy crisis. He was looking for a cure for cancer." Sounds great, but Stan Meyer ended up dead somehow in the 90s when he invented his famous water powered car. I hope this guy lives long enough to get this invention into production.
