David AbramsonDear Friends:

Welcome to our ICRF Chicago page! We invite you to become part of our community so that together we can support Israeli scientists in their tireless efforts to find more cures and treatments for cancer.

The purpose of our chapter is to raise funds to support scientists who live and work in Israel. We believe in the possibility that this generation will help rid the world of cancer. We base our belief in the success achieved by ICRF scientists to date.

Our volunteers share a single precept: to ensure that scientists remain scientists, and not have to become fundraisers. As volunteers, we pledge to support their efforts so that they can remain free of funding concerns. Through the power of our collaboration, we believe, cancer can become manageable, treatable and someday, eradicated.

We hope you never face the devastation cancer represents. We hope that your inspiration to join us comes from your passion to want to make a difference in the world of scientific research against cancer.

We look forward to sharing the progress of ICRF-funded scientists with you and invite you to subscribe to our newsletter to receive updates on the research advances made possible by ICRF supporters.

In the meantime, if you would like to learn more about our ICRF Chicago Chapter activities, please visit “Contact Us” to reach our team.
