Prof Nathan Cherny AM is the Director of Palliative Medicine at Shaare Zedek and is a world leader in applying emerging cancer therapies.
Dr Jordana Hyman is an IVF specialist who helps young women with cancer preserve their fertility into the future so that after they finish cancer treatment they can have children.
With a increased rate of BRCA genetic mutations in people of Jewish Heritage, initiatives at Shaare Zedek are saving lives both in Israel and around the world.
Last year you helped us buy a gene sequencer. Now we need to build on this so that Shaare Zedek can deliver the best of cancer prevention and care. We need your help to upgrade Shaare Zedek’s cancer facilities, to establish a biobank, and to implement an innovative cancer app. These initiatives have proven benefits that will enable our Australian doctors at Shaare Zedek to provide the best possible care and continue to make life saving breakthroughs.
