Elizabeth Pesce, Leader and Breast Cancer Survivor
Elizabeth Pesce is a 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, she explains why she chooses to support a place like Wistar.
