The Circle of Inspiration is a way to support cancer research while sharing the inspiring stories related to the cancer journeys of members of the extended Israel Cancer Research Fund (ICRF) family— and to honor individuals whose cancer diagnosis served as an opportunity to help others and advance the ICRF’s search for cures and life-extending treatments. Together, they are true beacons of light in scary and dark moments.
The Champions of Hope award recognizes individuals who went beyond their own diagnosis and personal circumstances to become a recognized advocate, fundraiser, clinician/researcher, or lay leader in the fight against this dreadful disease, or those who, while they may never have had cancer, have made a truly outsized contribution in support of cancer awareness, treatment, or research. Champions of Hope award winners’ contributions must be substantial and sustained.
Inspirational Heroes are people/those (individually or together with their family) whose cancer story, powerfully demonstrates the virtues of strength, courage, perseverance and determination, and whose stories are a source of inspiration to others.
