A Dedication of Love

After the tragic loss of their son Chuck Trobman to cancer at only 25 years old, Phyllis, Malcolm and their son Les became acutely aware of the struggles faced by cancer victims. As strong supporters of Israel, their journey led them to establishing the Charles E. Trobman Data Center at Rabin Medical Center in Israel in 1996. Here, vital data is collected for clinical trials in the hopes of discovering new and innovative cancer therapies and cures. Data management is considered an essential tool in cancer research. The center was recently relocated to the stateof- the art Davidoff Center, a comprehensive unique facility for the treatment and research of malignant diseases, where all oncology and hemato-oncology services are now located.

In November 2006, Phyllis, Malcolm and Les visited Israel to dedicate the center's new facilities. Surrounded by Rabin Medical Center staff, they paid tribute to their son's memory and witnessed how the Data Center can help save lives. Dr. Sulkes, Chairman of Oncology at the Rabin Medical Center, highlighted the important collaboration between Rabin Medical Center and medical centers all around the world in applying sophisticated medical treatments for their patients. Then at the end of January 2007 the Trobmans and friends participated once again in the Miami Tropical Half Marathon to raise new funds. Through their efforts the Charles E. Trobman Data Center generates true sparks of hope for cancer patients.
