Elizabeth Goldhirsh-Yellin is a young wife and mother, recently diagnosed with a carcinoid tumor. She is committed to extending her philanthropy and her attention to neuroendocrine cancer research.

The Goldhirsh-Yellin Foundation has issued a challenge to friends and supporters of CFCF: each new or increased gift will be matched dollar for dollar, and every gift increased by 50% or more will be matched two to one – doubling and tripling the impact of support. CFCF describes this as “an incredible opportunity to do everything we can to test out possible breakthrough therapies as we continue our aggressive quest for cures.”
