About The G&P Foundation for Cancer Research:

The G&P Foundation for Cancer Research was established in 1996 by Denise Rich and her son-in-law Philip Aouad in memory of Denise's daughter Gabrielle Rich Aouad, who died at age 27 from Acute Myelogenous Leukemia (AML). The Foundation's primary goal is to save lives by funding basic and clinical medical research in both conventional and integrative disciplines, which focus on prevention, treatment and quality of life issues of leukemia, lymphoma and related cancers. Since 1998, with the help of its Medical Advisory Board, chaired by Dr. Stephen D. Nimer of Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, The G&P Foundation has funded twenty-nine researchers, totaling almost $6 million in Medical Research Awards and is one of the largest non-governmental sources of grant support to blood cancer researchers at the nation's leading institutions.
