Hale Family Support Transforms Pancreatic Cancer Medicine

Hale Family Support Transforms Pancreatic Cancer Medicine

The Hale Family are longtime supporters of Dana-Farber, including through a transformative $50 million gift—the largest single gift to pancreatic cancer research in the Institute’s history and one of the largest gifts to The Dana-Farber Campaign

Judith B. Hale, Karen and Rob Hale, and Elizabeth Hale Kendall and Richard Kendall support Dana-Farber to honor the memory of Judy’s late husband, Robert “Bob” T. Hale Sr., who was also a generous philanthropist and was treated at Dana-Farber for pancreatic cancer. Their gifts have established the Robert T. Hale Sr. and Judith B. Hale Fund for Pancreatic Research and the Hale Family Center for Pancreatic Cancer Research.  

From the Hale’s generosity, the Hale Family Center has grown dramatically in size and scope of work, from a small team to more than 100 total staff across 13 laboratories. As a result, Dana-Farber has established one of the most sophisticated and largest clinical trial programs for pancreatic cancer at any cancer center in the world, developing new therapies to target mutations in pancreatic cancers, and working to harness the immune system to attack pancreatic cancers. Watch this video or read the press release to learn more.
