Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center assigns a team of medical experts for each of their patients. Dr. Ira Dunkel was part of the team that treated Jennifer and was our primary contact for Jennifer’s treatment.
His soft spoken manner was always a calming force during some very stressful times.
After Jennifer's death, it was Dr. Dunkel who informed us that there were not enough young medical research doctors concentrating on brain cancer. It was Dr. Dunkel's suggestion that the Beez Foundation choose initial phase brain cancer research as the area where it would focus most of its resources.
Dr. Dunkel continues to offer advice, guidance, and support in selecting the institutions and researchers that receive Foundation grants.
