About Gabrielle’s Angel Foundation for Cancer Research

Gabrielle’s Angel Foundation for Cancer Research was created in 1996, when Grammy-nominated songwriter and philanthropist, Denise Rich lost her daughter Gabrielle, a vibrant 27-year-old actress and Hodgkin’s lymphoma survivor, to acute myelogenous leukemia.  Gabrielle’s mother and sisters, Daniella Rich Kilstock and Ilona Rich Schachter, believed the best way to honor Gabrielle’s memory was to create a Foundation that would fund the best and brightest scientific investigators with the hope that less toxic treatments, and ultimately a cure, might be discovered.

Gabrielle’s Angel Foundation funds junior scientific investigators conducting research in the fields of leukemia, lymphoma, and related cancers.  Since its inception, Gabrielle’s Angel Foundation has awarded grants totaling $23 million to over 120 of the top physician-scientists in America.  Gabrielle’s Angel Foundation maintains its status as one of the largest non-governmental sources of grant support for blood cancer research in the United States.  In 2011, the Foundation announced the creation of its sister chapter, Gabrielle’s Angel Foundation UK, which expands its mission to fund similar research in the United Kingdom.  For more information, please visit: www.gabriellesangels.org / www.gabriellesangels.co.uk
