Committed to a Cure for Neuroblastoma
Lilah’s Fund is a registered family fund at the Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto. In just 6 years, the fund has directed over $660,000 to research aimed at developing more effective treatments for neuroblastoma patients. These funds have assisted SickKids researchers in obtaining an additional $3,000,000 in research grants to support their drug discovery program under the leadership of Dr. David Kaplan.
Lilah’s Fund works in collaboration with a number of other Ontario family- run organizations, including the James Fund, Shania’s Sunflowers, Sam’s Day, Kyle’s Fight, Sydney and Georgia HOPE fund and Barbara’s Butterflies in order to fund a critical mass of neuroblastoma research at SickKids and collaborative research projects around the world.
Lilah’s Fund was started by Lilah Petersiel’s family while she was still in treatment for neuroblastoma. Diagnosed and treated within her first few weeks of life, Lilah fought her disease with courage, strength, and a smile, and is now a bubbly, inquisitive, and, most importantly, healthy 3rd grader in Toronto. She shares our dreams of solving neuroblastoma so that all children who face this disease can do so with the knowledge that they, too, will get healthy soon.
