I first learned of Israel Cancer Research Fund when it was listed in the obituary of our family's long-term nanny Laura, who sadly lost her battle with breast cancer in 2019. As I learned more about ICRF, I was blown away by the quality of the research that the organization supports, and particularly that the research is happening in Israel.
I decided to join the Chicago board of ICRF in 2020, and in the three years since joining have known of several close contacts under the age of 45 who have been diagnosed with cancer - one who lost his life to pancreatic cancer at the age of 40, leaving behind his wife and two young sons.
Nobody knows which dollar will finally lead to a cure, or to a life-saving early detection, which is why I ask for any support you are able to provide. I firmly believe that the work ICRF does is of vital importance. The answer to cancer is research!
