The virtual journal that you are reading is just one of the many ways that the ongoing pandemic has changed our world and altered the manner in which we interact with each other. This year marks our fifteenth anniversary of uniting members of the law enforcement community in a celebration of public service. This fundraising drive marks a decade and a half of bringing people together, from
around the globe, in pursuit of a world without cancer.
Most importantly, it counts years of progress and advancements in the field of research that our generous donors have sustained. Long before the current global epidemic, we realized that disease respects no national border. Long before the outbreak we are experiencing, we realized that collaboration between people of goodwill with the world’s finest scientific minds, is the best way to combat sickness. These trying times only strengthen our resolve to further transmit this philosophy.
As the year closes, we salute all the individuals and organizations that made it possible for us to carry on during this tumultuous time. More importantly, we wish them a 2022 filled with wealth, happiness and above all, health.
Wishing You All Better Days Ahead,
Edward J. Strohm Jr.
Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory (CSHL) received a $20,000 donation from the Three Strohm Sisters Family Foundation to support cancer research. Ed Strohm, Vice President of the Foundation, visited CSHL Assistant Professor and Cancer Center Member Jeremy Borniger’s lab to learn more about his research and present the Foundation’s check to Sarah Kitt. The Borniger lab’s research investigates bi-directional communication between the brain and periphery in the context of cancer. This research, in combination with clinical work, will facilitate the development of novel treatments to improve outcomes for patients with cancer.
Strohm serves on CSHL’s Corporate Advisory Board and will have a plaque placed in one of the courtyards on main campus in honor of his dedication to the Laboratory and the Foundation. Founded in 1999, the Three Strohm Sisters Family Foundation’s mission is to fight against cancer by raising awareness of early detection and supporting research.

Three Strohm Sisters Foundation and Stony Brook Doctor Take a Personal Approach to a Global Challenge
With the number of diagnoses around the world expected to surpass 20 million by 2030, cancer is a truly global health challenge.
Three Strohm Sisters Family Foundation Vice President Ed Strohm and Stony Brook Medicine Associate Professor of Pediatrics Laura Hogan, the recipient of research funding from the Three Strohm Sisters Family Foundation. But for many of those leading the fight against the disease — as activists, fundraisers, doctors and researchers — the cause is extremely personal.
On December 18, 2017, Ed Strohm of the Three Strohm Sisters Family Foundation presented CSHL Associate Professor Mikala Egeblad with a check for $5,000 to support her ongoing lung cancer research. This is the first donation Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory has received from the Long Island-based foundation, which is dedicated to the eradication of cancer.
Cancer knows no border, so it is only natural that people from different countries would join forces to raise funds to support cancer research in an effort to eradicate this disease. One such international effort has been made by the Strohm family, from New York State.
