Celebrating 20 years of The H Foundation
Your stories make a difference and inspire the continued support of The H Foundation. In honor of our 20th anniversary we will be sharing stories from individuals in The H Foundation community and researchers at the Lurie Cancer Center, who share their own stories of why cancer is personal, why $20 or more will help them cure cancer, and how the money we raise continues to make an impact.
Leonidas Platanias, MD, PhD
The H Foundation is pleased to introduce Leonidas Platanias, MD, PhD, Director of the Robert H. Lurie Comprehensive Cancer Center of Northwestern University, as our first Ambassador of our 2020 H Foundation Ambassadors program.
In addition to his role as Director, Dr. Platanias is the Jesse, Sara, Andrew, Abigail, Benjamin and Elizabeth Lurie Professor of Oncology; Professor of Medicine (Hematology and Oncology) and Biochemistry; and Professor of Molecular Genetics. Dr. Platanias’ research focus is on chronic leukemias, multiple myeloma, and non-hodgkin’s lymphoma.
As an Ambassador of The H Foundation, Dr. Platanias shares, in his own words, the need for basic science cancer research funding and the impact of The H Foundation’s support.
The H Foundation is pleased to introduce Ambassador Neil Graves, co-founder of The H Foundation and President of Tri-State Sales & Service. Inc. which represents Generation Lighting Brands, Designer Collections/Monte Carlo, Sea Gull Lighting, Emery Allen, and Koncept.
Neil’s support of The H Foundation is driven by his passion to help cure cancer in our lifetime and change the odds of 1 in 3 people being diagnosed with cancer. Neil never wants to hear that his wife, daughters, or granddaughters are touched by this disease, so he is making a difference NOW.

Donate $20 for 20 years of The H Foundation
The H Foundation founders came together with a vision to make a difference in the fight against cancer 20 years ago. They saw $1 turn into $100, $100 turn into $1,000, and $1,000 turn into $100,000; proving that together we can make amazing things happen.
