Remembering a Life Committed to Cancer Research

Scientific GlasswareFor more than two decades, Donald A. Carlson of California was an extremely generous supporter of the American Institute for Cancer Research. He was so dedicated to our cancer prevention mission that he often made contributions several times throughout the year.

In 2006, AICR welcomed Mr. Carlson into the Heritage Circle. The Heritage Circle consists of individuals who have been supporting AICR for at least twenty years.

In 2009, Mr. Carlson informed AICR that he had included the Institute in his will. He continued to make generous contributions to AICR until his death in 2010. AICR later received a substantial bequest from his estate.

We are extremely grateful for Mr. Carlson’s generous support throughout his life, as well as this bequest, which has helped fund a significant number of research grants.
