About My Campaign



Since losing my beloved Aunt Hope to cancer in May 2019, I've launched a charitable organization, Hats for Hope - donating hand knit hats to cancer patients and others in need, in Hope's memory.

I'm also committed to raising funds for cancer medical care and research. Specifically for the NYU Perlmutter Cancer Center, where Hope was treated and cared for over the course of her 20 month battle.


As part of my Mitzvah Project, for my upcoming Bat Mitzvah, I’d like to invite you to contribute to my fundraising campaign, and to this cause that's so meaningful to me.


If you feel motivated to donate any amount, no matter the size, please do. Your gift would mean so much to me, and even more to so many others who depend on care from Perlmutter and pray every day for a cure.


Thank you for your support.
