Elizabeth Pesce: Leader and Survivor

Elizabeth Pesce is member of The Wistar Institute’s Leadership Council.

Elizabeth's father, an estate attorney, worked with The Wistar Institute. When her father died of colon cancer, her family set up a fund in his memory: the Louis Washburn Memorial Fund, which raises money to support research studying the environmental factors that cause cancer.

Elizabeth is also a breast cancer survivor.

In this video, Elizabeth explains why she chooses to support a place like Wistar.
