The Goodman family: committed to cancer research

Rosalind and Morris Goodman - Owen Egan

In 2008, Rosalind and Morris Goodman made a transformative multi-million dollar gift to support the McGill Cancer Centre, which was renamed the Goodman Cancer Research Centre (GCRC) in their honour. Not only did their support allow McGill to bring together more than 300 leading cancer researchers, students, and staff in a new state-of-the-art facility, but it also cemented the University’s status as a leading strategic hub for innovative research. Rosalind fought and survived cancer in 2007, but ultimately it took her life in 2014. As a tireless volunteer, Rosalind’s ability to energize cancer research activities at McGill and educate others about the disease continues to inspire our daily work. Morris Goodman remains a passionate driving force behind annual GCRC activities, including its popular public lecture series as well as biennial galas to raise cancer research funding.
