Three Strohm Sisters Family Foundation partners law enforcement members to raise money to fund research into paediatric cancer. They hold an annual Gala in NY each year and honour specific members of law enforcement for individual efforts in their efforts to support such causes. This year, JACK board member Mark Edwards, MBE, was awarded the 2017 Children’s Hero Award.
The Three Strohm Sisters Family Foundation is a non-profit organization founded in 1999 by three sisters, all of whom were afflicted with breast cancer. As cancer survivors, they found strength in organizing a foundation to support those battling this dreadful disease by sponsoring events that will raise money for cancer research.
In addition to their commitment to eradicating cancer, the Strohm Family has a tradition of law enforcement and public service stretching back almost a century. The Strohm Family subscribes to the tenets that cancer is a scourge that respects no national boundaries, when good people focus their efforts on a common problem anything is attainable, and there is no commodity more precious than a child’s life. To these ends, the Strohm Sisters Family Foundation has developed a Law Enforcement Partnership with the goal of eradicating pediatric cancer. This Partnership has evolved to encompass a broad spectrum of the law enforcement community on both sides of the Atlantic.
By uniting the global law enforcement community, as well as citizens of the world who believe in being of service to their fellow man, with leading international scientific researchers, we are confident that a cure for childhood cancers will be found.
