The Margie and Robert E. Petersen Foundation  Matched $5 Million in Spark Hope Gifts 

The Spark Hope Campaign was fueled by a generous match by the Margie and Robert E. Petersen Foundation. A publishing giant, Robert E. Petersen passed away from neuroendocrine cancer in 2007. The Margie and Robert E. Petersen Foundation has helped NETRF to achieve its most ambitious research effort yet to understand and treat neuroendocrine cancers.
