Our ability to fulfill the hopes and dreams of those affected by cancer begins with you. Your gift can extend your legacy beyond your lifetime.
We hope that you take pride in the part you play in helping to unlock the mysteries of brain tumors. In years to come, as dramatic discoveries translate into innovative treatments and even cures, we will reflect with gratitude on the generosity of those who made it possible.
By making a gift to the Fund for Hope, establishing a Partners for Progress Fund or choosing to honor a loved one with a named endowment or professorship, you become a member of a small but vital and unique group of people who are dedicating themselves to being on the front lines in the fight against brain tumors.
Together we can dramatically accelerate the pace of converting scientific discoveries into clinical advances that reduce the devastating effects of cancer.
The Deutsch and Samsky families are pictured above receiving the 2015 Shingleton Award. To date, the Rory David Deutsch Foundation has given over $3.9 million to Duke, resulting in a fully funded university professorship in Rory’s name, the establishment of the first Rory David Deutsch Scholar, and, most recently, the support for the recruitment of a renowned physician-scientist to further the work at Duke. The generosity of the Deutsch Foundation has allowed Duke researchers to continue to pursue a broad variety of projects aimed at advancing treatments of childhood brain tumors.
