Hadassah to honor 3 men; hear from melanoma survivor

The Tampa Ameet chapter of Hadassah invites the community to its annual Associates Award Dinner, on Thursday, Jan. 11 at 7 p.m. when guest speaker Stewart Greenberg, melanoma survivor, patient advocate and trial lawyer, will tell his own riveting story: “Miracles Do Happen – They Happen at Hadassah.”

This year’s honorees, Herm Greenberg, Cliff Reiss, and Larry Leibowitz, have demonstrated excellence in leadership ability and active participation in the advancement of the goals and objectives of Hadassah as well as the Jewish community at large.

Hadassah Associates are men enrolled as affiliates of Hadassah and support the mission to advance medical research, healing and education. Collectively, they have raised millions of dollars for projects including stem cell research, gene therapy, cardiac surgical suite, the Sarah Wetsman Davidson Tower medicine room and double patient room and for the recent Men’s Health Initiative focusing on cardiology, prostate cancer and lung cancer.

Born and raised in New York City, Stewart Greenberg is an accomplished trial lawyer, specializing in medical malpractice in both Miami and New York. He and his wife Maggie, a paralegal and life member of Hadassah, are active in the Miami Jewish Federation. He has been president of Bet Shira Synagogue and sits on the board of Jewish Adoption and Foster Care Options.

Stewart Greenberg was diagnosed with stage-four melanoma and was told that there was no treatment that could save him. Facing a devastating risk of metastasis, Stewart consulted various physicians, but they were unable to offer him any hope. While on a mission to Israel, he met with Dr. Michal Lotem, head of the Sharett Institute of Oncology, and was accepted into a personally tailored melanoma vaccine clinical trial at the Hadassah Medical Center.

Greenberg will tell how he received a new lease on life, and how Hadassah is saving and transforming lives every day through medical breakthroughs.

The Hadassah Associates Award Dinner will be held at the Holiday Inn Tampa Westshore, 700 N. Westshore Blvd. Tickets are $49 per person; gold sponsorship is available at $250 and includes two tickets as well as a special meet and greet reception prior to the dinner.

For reservations and more information, call Michele Norris at (813) 352-8765 prior to Jan. 2.
