When my youngest son, Azad, learned that his girlfriend, Debby-Lu, was diagnosed with an intrinsic brainstem glioma (inoperable brain tumor) at the tender age of 19, he decided to marry her and help her in the fight for her life.
With Azad by her side, and with the steadfast help of Jefferson Hospital’s neuroscience program, she outlived her initial prognosis of six months to live, and went on to live for six years. Sadly, Debby lost her battle at the age of 26. The Garo Yepremian Foundation
continues to fight this disease in honor of her memory.
Donations to our foundation support Jefferson Hospital for Neuroscience,
in Philadelphia, PA.
Thank you– I know that with your help, we can defeat this
terrible disease forever!
The Garo Yepremian Foundation
is a 501(c)3 charitable corporation dedicated to raising funds for
