MRW Leadership Board

The Myra Rubenstein Weis (MRW) Leadership Board's goal is to educate and empower people to make informed decisions to prevent hereditary breast and ovarian cancers.  Funds raised through their activities support Living in the Future (LIFE) Pre-Vivor resources, including an online educational workshop created for individuals diagnosed with BRCA and other breast and ovarian cancer predisposition genes; as well as provide Mammogram testing for the underserved of Lake County.  

MRW Leadership Board held its 3rd Annual "Jammin' in Our Genes" Benefit on Saturday, December 1, 2018 at 210 Restaurant in Highwood.

This year’s benefit featured a silent auction, games, music provided by DJ Versage, drinks and more. 

Proceeds will provide financial support for a screening mammography program for uninsured and underserved patients in the Lake County community.
