For the past 25 years, thousands have joined the Samuel Waxman Cancer Research Foundation at its annual gala, also known as The Waxman. Together we have invested millions of dollars, funding some of the brightest minds in cancer research.

Please join us in congratulating this year's honorees, artist and humanitarian, Ariela Wertheimer, Guido Campello, co-CEO at Journelle, Founding family of Cosabell & Dr. Sapna Palep, co-CEO at Journelle, Founder of Spring Street Dermatology, Mt. Sinai Clinical Professor, and CBS New York News Anchor, Chris Wragge.

This year, we hope to raise $5 million to fund the new SWCRF Mission Possible Grants. These highly competitive projects will help identify biomarkers such as longevity genes and epigenetic changes that play important roles in determining healthy lifespans and cancer risk as well as develop new targeted treatments and preventions.

The SWCRF genuinely appreciates your support of its mission. Your gift to the SWCRF, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, may qualify as a charitable deduction for federal income tax purposes.
