From Dana-Farber Impact
Late Fall 2020
Nrman and Carol Tasgal were inspired to support gastrointestinal cancer
research after Norman successfully overcame his own battle with small
bowel cancer. Their generous gift of $100,000 will support key research in gastrointestinal cancers under the supervision of Thomas Abrams, MD.
Norman is an avid cyclist and former Pan-Mass Challenge rider for Team Perry, named after the late son-in-law of Norman’s good friend Bernard “Buddy” Gitlin. The money raised by Team Perry supported Dana-Farber’s Gastrointestinal Cancer Center where Norman was treated many years later
