Marlene Greenebaum, a breast cancer survivor, expressed her pleasure at being able to help Israeli women receive outstanding medical care in a personalized and dignified setting. Dr. Tamar Sella, Director of the new Center, commented: “In the field of breast cancer, there are a lot of difficult moments, but there is also a lot of hope. We know that Marlene Greenebaum’s strength and courage will now give hope to other women.”
Marking the opening of the Center, leading cancer experts from the University of Maryland joined the Greenebaums in Jerusalem and exchanged knowledge with their Israeli colleagues at a seminar on breast cancer research that preceded the dedication. Among them were Dr. Kevin Cullen, Director of the Marlene and Stewart Greenebaum Cancer Center at the University of Maryland, Dr. Angela Brodie, Professor of Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics at the University of Maryland’s Greenebaum Cancer Center, and Dr. Rachel Brim, Director of Breast Imaging at George Washington University Medical Center.
