Please join us in celebrating “A Decade Of Hope” in honor of Elizabeth Minter’s 30th Birthday (02/11) and the ten-year anniversary of Elizabeth’s Hope founding.
Liz was diagnosed with rare inoperable brain cancer just weeks before her 20th birthday. In the months that followed, realizing that research was the only hope for young victims like her, she founded Elizabeth’s Hope with her brilliant neurosurgeon, Dr. Jeffrey Greenfield, to fund research on pediatric brain tumors. Her passion and dedication laid the cornerstone for developing a dedicated laboratory at Weill Cornell Medicine called the Children’s Brain Tumor Project (CBTP).
As we celebrate ten years of Elizabeth’s Hope, the CBTP lab is now an acknowledged global leader in pediatric brain cancer research.
Tragically, Elizabeth passed away a year later. She is forever 21. It is an everlasting sorrow that Elizabeth is not here to celebrate her 30th birthday and to see what she created.
Over the last ten years, Elizabeth’s courage and vision have inspired us. Sadly, her job is not done. Brain cancer is still the most fatal cancer in children. Thus, it seems appropriate we should celebrate Liz’s birthday and the Ten Year Anniversary of Elizabeth’s Hope founding with a call to action. LET’S RAISE FUNDS to help get closer to Liz’s goal of better treatment options for young victims of brain cancer.
Thank you to all her friends, family and supporters who have believed in her vision and legacy. You have made a difference. Tangible hope is on the horizon.
Emmie and Mike
