Edelman-Gardner Cancer Research Foundation
2019, what a year it has been. The foundation has by far had their share of challenges. One thing did not change and that was the fundamental charge of this organization.
Some of the changes, highlights, and successes for 2019 and where we are headed in 2020.
Board of Directors
With George’s passing, we made some additions to the Board of Directors.
- Karen assumed the position as President
- Sue Corey took over the responsibilities of Secretary
- John Kwiatkowski assumed treasurer responsibility.
- Additional Board members added were Cheryl Edelman, Courtney Edelman (Social Media Director), Margaret Farrell, and Billy Farrell.
Maureen Werner from Schum & Werner PLLC Law Firm joined us by offering to do pro-bono work with foundation when needed.
Wilmot Cancer Institute
Many changes and highlights. The Foundation was honored at the Wilmot Discovery Ball with the 2019 Inspiration Award. It was an incredible night, one that George would have been very proud of!
In April we renewed our commitment to continue our $50,000/year for research and presented our check for $50,000.
Sue Corey and I presented a Certificate of Appreciation to the Hilton Fire Department at their monthly meeting for their continued support to the foundation over the past 30+ years. We hope to make this an annual award.
In July, we rode in the Hilton Fireman's Parade to show our appreciation to all for your support. In 2020 we will host a float with Survivors. Please call me (585-755-7270) if you are a survivor and would like to ride the float!
Overall, a lot was accomplished in 2019, despite the difficult time.
Thanks to all for your support and we are confident we will have another successful year.
Thanks to all for EVERYTHING
