The 2022 Quest for a Cure Gala raised over $230,000 for research!

The 2022 gala marked ten years of significantly impacting the lives of thousands of Castleman disease patients around the world. Ten years of relentless research to better understand the cause of Castleman disease and how to treat it effectively. And ten years of successfully turning our hope for cures into action.

The gala joined together patients, loved ones, and community members to raise awareness and funds for Castleman disease research. We had an exciting program with remarks from the CDCN’s co-founder, Dr. David Fajgenbaum, physician-scientist at the University of Pennsylvania, and the author of Chasing My Cure: A Doctor’s Race to Turn Hope Into Action. The CDCN would like to thank our headline sponsor, EUSA Pharma.
