Our donations at work
The White Aisle Foundation is mentioned prominently in an issue of the Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center publication Giving Matters. An interview with Dr. David McDermott, whose work we support, quotes him as saying:
The White Aisle Foundation was created by the family of a young woman who was treated for metastatic melanoma with a drug that resulted in a dramatic, but unfortunately short-lived response. When this drug failed, she was too sick to receive the newer forms of immune therapy. The grant given in her memory was enough to collect and publish data and develop a clinical trial to compare her treatment with immune therapy. The research that was spurred by her unfortunate outcome and supported by her family and friends will help change the treatment for patients like her around the world.
We have contributed more than $110,000 thus far to Dr. McDermott's work, and continue our support through the Rebecca Garrison-Sokoloff Melanoma Research Endowment. Thank you for helping us make that happen.
