In April 2008, Debra Zelman, a 40 year old mother of three young children, was diagnosed with stage IV advanced incurable stomach cancer. While such awful news might bring many to a standstill, Debbie was a tenacious and successful litigator and real estate attorney who never let a challenge stand in her way. She immediately began to pursue treatment for her illness, but she quickly learned that there are relatively few treatment options available for those diagnosed with this type of cancer. In April 2009, Debbie founded Debbie’s Dream Foundation, Inc. which seeks as its ultimate goal to make the cure for stomach cancer a reality.
Debbie’s Dream Foundation, Inc., a non-profit charity, applies money to grants for stomach cancer research at healthcare, education, and medical research facilities throughout the United States. For more information please visit www.debbiesdream.org.
