Hero Award: Noah Grove
At just ﬁve years of age, Noah Grove won his ﬁght against osteosarcoma, but it resulted in a leg leg amputation. However, with treatment and support from Georgetown Lombardi, Noah has never looked back. He has succeeded on and oﬀ the ﬁeld (and ice), ﬁrst as part of the 2014 US Amputee Soccer World Cup Team, to most recently with the U.S. National Sled Hockey team, where Noah and his team won the gold at the 2018 Winter Paralympics in South Korea. With his ﬁrst year of college under his belt, Noah plans to ultimately become an orthopedic oncologist in order to help young patients facing a situation similar to his own. This young man’s resilience and dedication make for a hero in every sense of the word.
Fighter Award: Azrael, Franz, Schwab & Lipowitz, LLC
One must go back to the beginning of CCF to appreciate how important the law ﬁrm of Azrael, Franz, Schwab & Lipowitz, LLC has been to CCF. In 1983, Shirley Howard asked her good friend and attorney, Edward Azrael, to incorporate The Children’s Cancer Foundation, Inc. and serve on its ﬁrst Board of Directors. Edward readily responded to Shirley’s request, and or the next 35 years, Azrael Franz has continued to honor Edward’s commitment to Shirley by providing CCF with valued legal counsel on a pro bono basis. Jonathan Azrael followed in his father’s footsteps and served on the CCF Board until 2015. CCF is truly honored to extend the 2018 Fighter Award to our long-time partner in the ﬁght against children’s cancer.
The 34th Annual CCF Gala offers a variety of sponsorship levels, including ones that include tickets to the event and those without. For additional opportunities, please contact the CCF office at 443-546-4479 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
