By Greater Midwest Chapter

Our Mission

In collaboration with Northwestern Memorial Foundation, the Friends of Marlene Hetzel Palmerson provides meaningful financial support to help provide cancer patients with a variety of supportive care services during all stages of one's treatment and recovery.

As the mother of two young daughters, Marlene was diagnosed with breast cancer. She kept her disease private, only sharing it with an inner circle. While Marlene remained positive, maintaining balance as both a businesswoman and mother as she went from treatment to treatment, proved to be a constant struggle. Marlene sadly lost her battle with cancer in May 2010, but her generous spirit continues to be remembered and appreciated by all who knew her. This is why the Friends of Marlene have partnered with the Maggie Daley Center - to provide a one-stop concierge approach to help women battling cancer.
