In 2007, we made our largest donation since the inception of our Fund. We committed to donate $1,000,000 to The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia to create something that has never been done before; an endowed Research Chair solely dedicated to finding a cure for pediatric leukemia. Our donation was deemed so important that Children’s Hospital themselves agreed to donate an additional $1,000,000. This $2,000,000 endowment is unprecedented. Once completed The Joshua Kahan Pediatric Leukemia Research Chair will have continual funding to support high quality, state of the art research objectives at one of the best children’s hospital in world. It is our belief that funding like this will give doctors and scientists more tools than ever before and will undoubtedly help us find a cure for pediatric leukemia.
