The David Yurman Jewelry Event

 David Yurman

On Tuesday, August 11th more than 100 people attended the David Yurman jewelry event to benefit the Sarcoma Tumor Bank at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center. The exclusive shopping night, held at the Copley Place Mall, was hosted by Dalia Al-Othman, an osteosarcoma survivor and grateful patient of Mark C. Gebhardt, M.D.

Dalia Al-Othman, who spearheaded the event, spoke eloquently about how grateful she is for the wonderful care she received at BIDMC and for Dr. Gebhardt, chief of orthopaedic surgery, whom she credits with saving her leg—and her life—when she was 12 years old. A portion of the funds raised from the event will help support Dr. Gebhardt’s important work in sarcoma cancer research. 

Dr. Gebhardt spoke about how the tumor bank will better facilitate research efforts to fight sarcomas, which are aggressive, malignant tumors of the musculoskeletal system. The Sarcoma Tumor Bank will help accelerate the discovery of biological markers and pathways involved in tumor growth and can lead to the development of new customized drug therapies.

Dr. Gebhardt graciously thanked all those in attendance for their help in making this event a success.

If you are interested in supporting The Sarcoma Tumor Bank, please contact Leah Oko at loko@bidmc.harvard.edu or (617) 667-4567.

The David Yurman Jewelry Event was just one of many events organized by a BIDMC grateful patient.
