Project To Cure
Project To Cure was founded in 2004 by Charles and Andrea Hirsch with the support of their family and friends. It is a grass roots organization that operates under the North Shore LIJ Health System Foundation. Four years after their son’s recovery at Cohen Children's Medical Center from a benign pituitary brain tumor the Hirsch’s were interested in finding a means to give back to the facility that cured their son. They were approached by their surgeon and asked if they were interested in raising funds to support a novel line of research that targeted cancerous brain tumors.
