The Eileen Stein Jacoby Fund

The Eileen Stein Jacoby Fund

Cheryl Herman
has a positive attitude
for life.

This was especially evident when she established a special fund at Fox Chase Cancer Center in tribute to her beloved sister, Eileen Stein Jacoby.

Eileen died in April 1999 at the age of 45 after a three-year battle with breast cancer. A year after Eileen's passing, Cheryl threw her energies into developing the fund as a lasting tribute to her sister's life. With tremendous support from her husband Scott, her children, Justin and Jillian, her parents Harold and Pauline Stein, extended family and friends, The Eileen Stein Jacoby Fund at Fox Chase Cancer Center was established.

The Eileen Stein Jacoby Fund supports crucial research examining the hereditary and non-hereditary factors that influence one's risk of developing breast cancer and one's response to therapy. Instead of being used to buy an expensive piece of equipment that will one day become obsolete, the Eileen Stein Jacoby Fund invests in a much more valuable and important part of cancer research: new researchers. One hundred percent of the money that the fund raises goes towards this important cause.

To date, the Eileen Stein Jacoby Fund has raised more than $1.3 million for breast cancer research! 

Cheryl, along with her family, friends, and dedicated volunteers remain committed to the cause, and are confident their efforts will make a difference.

On May 12, 2011, The Eileen Stein Jacoby Fund held a reception to celebrate the $1 Million mark in fundraising efforts for Fox Chase Cancer Center.
