About Stop Cancer and The Marni Fund
Following Marni’s passing, Krav Maga Worldwide held it’s first “Fighting For The Cure” fundraiser, the proceeds of which helped plant the seed funding for The Marni Fund. Thereafter, a substantial Marni Fund three year research grant was awarded to Dr. Melanie Palomares at City of Hope. In 2007, as a result of growing support, additional grants were made to Dr. Sara Hurvitz at UCLA/Jonsson and to Dr. Christopher Haiman at USC/Norris.
Marni, you will be missed, but never forgotten.
