Cancer research is important to the Rosenberg family. During a 10 year period, Dana accompanied her son to Memorial Hospital for treatment approximately 50 years ago and encountered many very sick children, these sights were so powerful they’ve remained with Dana all these years. The traumatic memories are what propel this special octogenarian to give to The National Foundation for Cancer Research. Her examples of generosity and hope are priceless.
