Our Heartfelt Thanks!  We extend our appreciation to the many benefactors who have donated to Friends of Marlene. From 2010 until mid-2017 their generosity allowed Friends of Marlene to provide meaningful support for services offered at the Robert H. Lurie Comprehensive Cancer Care Center at Northwestern University.  Beginning in July 2017, Friends of Marlene has directed support to Gilda’s Club Chicago, where those impacted by cancer can go to gain essential social, emotional and informational support to supplement medical care.
