Earl J. Goldberg Chapter of AAMDSIF

Award Year: 

For over 30 years, the friends of Allen and Harriet Goldberg raised money in honor of their son, Earl, who passed away at the age of 14 from aplastic anemia.  Some of the $171,000 they raised supported an AAMDSIF Research Grant to Dr. Seth Corey of UT-MD Anderson Cancer Center for his study of the effects of an enzyme on controlling the demise of blood cells. Earl and his family inspired patients, families and friends across Chicago and nationwide to raise awareness and support to fight this bone marrow failure disease. As AAMDSIF has grown to reach more people than ever before, and local chapters are being transformed into Community Connections, we want to pay tribute to the generosity, leadership and commitment of everyone involved over the years in this tremendous volunteer effort.
