Read Dr. Mark Israel's Op-Ed from this week's Jerusalem Post 'The Genuine Promise of Israeli Cancer Research'

I believe there can be no crueler or more outrageous act than falsely giving hope to millions of cancer patients and their families around the world.

Tamir Gilat

Tamir Gilat, 56 years old, attorney and businessman, Chairman of Israel Cancer Research Fund, Tel Aviv Israel.

In 2011, Tamir was diagnosed with two different types of cancer, and was given a few months to live.  Thanks to the use of groundbreaking drugs, a lot of luck, and a lot of mental toughness, Tamir has now been living with cancer for seven years. A few months after his diagnosis, Tamir decided to dedicate his time volunteering to help cancer patients, and to support cancer research in Israel. Today, Tamir serves as Chairman of Israel Cancer Research Fund, a non-profit private Fund which is entirely dedicated to supporting cancer researchers in Israel.

All of the ICRF’s activities in Israel are performed on a volunteer basis by Tamir and additional volunteers.  Tamir’s spouse, Keren Nahari OBM, shared the leadership of the Israel Cancer Research Fund alongside him, and shared his vision of finding a cure for cancer through Israeli cancer researchers.  Keren passed away a few years ago, following a long battle with cancer. 
Before her death, Keren was mentioned repeatedly in various articles as an “elite warrior” against cancer, for the way in which she handled her cancer over 13 years, while managing an impressive career and raising their two young daughters (Gabrielle and Maya).

Today, Tamir raises his girls with love and dedication, alongside his position as ICRF Chairman and as a bedrock of support for cancer patients and their families.  We thank Tamir for the countless hours of volunteering his time for ICRF in Israel.
