ICRF: Suppress Stress To Kill Cancer

Special to the Jewish Week

Some 30 years ago Varda Rotter finished her work with a cancer research team at MIT and returned to Israel. She wanted to continue her work but didn’t have a penny in her pocket. Israel Cancer Research Fund came through for her, giving her a grant that enabled her to start her own research.

She said that ICRF told her: We give you the liberty to work. Go ahead and realize your dream.
