Community Involvement


Column of Hope

The Kane Firm is most heavily devoted to supporting Column of Hope – an international leader in medical research of Chiari malformation, syringomyelia and related disorders.

Mark Kane and his wife, Barbara, founded and serve on the board of directors for the Column of Hope, and Laura Kane-Punyon acts as a spokesperson. Mark provides business mentorship to researchers to optimize translational research funding opportunities. The Kane Firm dedicates resources to provide transparent financial reporting, administer research grants as well as an annual CME session and fundraising gala.

If you are to tour through The Kane Firm office, you will find gala photographs and reproductions of slides from Column of Hope’s groundbreaking research studies proudly lining the halls.

In 2015, Mark Kane & Laura Kane-Punyon, along with Dr. Lee Guterman, were featured on AM Buffalo to discuss Column of Hope’s progress. Check out the Video!
