PLANTATION, Fla., Dec. 23, 2019 — Debbie’s Dream Foundation: Curing Stomach Cancer (DDF) is grateful for its partners whose financial support helped make 2019 a huge success. These sponsors have made significant contributions toward the organization’s mission-driven initiatives, including its Patient Resource Education Program (PREP), stomach cancer symposia, webinars, and signature events.
Sponsors of DDF’s PREP program include 2019 Copper Sponsors Intercontinental Real Estate Corporation and Taiho Oncology; EMD Serono, Genentech, and Merck. The Foundation hosted a total of seven Stomach Cancer Educational Webinars in 2019, each made possible by Gold Sponsors Astellas and Merck, and Taiho Oncology. This year, thanks to the support of 2019 Nutrition Sponsor Bristol-Myers Squibb, DDF partnered with the Memorial Cancer Institute and Publix Aprons Cooking School to host a nutritional “Eating Around the Holidays” webinar and produced how-to cooking videos and recipes to bring deliciously modified food options to stomach cancer patients. All recipes and videos are available at https://debbiesdream.org/resources/nutrition/, and webinars can be accessed at https://debbiesdream.org/lecture-library/.
DDF’s Stomach Cancer Educational Symposia include National Platinum Sponsors Bristol-Myers Squibb and Daiichi Sankyo; National Gold Sponsor Lilly Oncology; National Silver Sponsors Astellas and Merck; National Supporting Sponsor Taiho Oncology; International Symposium Silver Sponsor Baptist Health South Florida and Bronze Sponsor Genentech.
Thanks to our generous sponsors, we have been able to accomplish so much in 2019,” said Andrea Eidelman, DDF’s CEO. “We are extremely grateful for this level of support from our industry partners because their contributions allow us to make a huge impact in the stomach cancer community through our various programs. Without them and the support of the general public, we would not be able to accomplish these goals, which help us towards our mission of raising awareness and finding a cure for this disease.”
In addition to the support of DDF mission-driven programs, Intercontinental Real Estate Corporation’s CEO Peter Palandjian has also served as Title Sponsor for the 10th Annual Dream Makers Gala, Headliner Sponsor for the 5th Annual New York Night of Laughter, and funded one of three 2019 Debbie’s Dream Foundation-AACR Gastric Cancer Research Fellowship grants in honor of his late father Petros Palandjian, who passed away of stomach cancer.
