Inez and Barry Wade’s support of the Abramson Cancer Center began 20 years ago during Inez's brother Stanley's brief yet valiant battle with Acute Myeloid Leukemia. While Stanley's team of physicians aggressively tackled his disease with all that was at their disposal, it became clear to Inez that research support was needed to truly advance treatment options for AML.
"Upon my brother’s death, I was determined to do whatever I could to help treat and eradicate cancer. I decided to establish an endowment in autologous bone marrow treatment. My husband and I will continue to support the institution to the fullest of our family's ability."
