I am pleased to continue my support of the the
"Punch" Worthington Laboratory (PWR Lab) at the David Geffen School
of Medicine in honor of my father, David "Punch" Worthington,
Ph.D. with a contribution of $100,000.
The PWR Lab is the home of exciting new research on novel strategies for
the treatment of mesothelioma and other occupational cancers.
In 2005, I was proud to help launch this vital research effort in honor
of Punch who was diagnosed with asbestosis and lung cancer. Punch obtained
a Ph.D. in Genetics but left a promising career in academia to pursue
his true love: labor union organizing and advocacy. His memory lives on
through the efforts of Dr. Robert Cameron and his staff. Thank you Dr. Cameron!
