Garo and his wife, Maritza, formed The Garo Yepremian Foundation for Brain Tumor Research in 2001, while their late daughter-in-law, Debby, was suffering from an inoperable brain tumor. Unfortunately, Debby passed away at the age of 26.
In 2014, Garo was diagnosed with high grade neuroendocrine cancer and multiple brain tumors. He fought valiantly, but was ultimately taken by this disease in 2015. Garo’s family redoubled their fundraising efforts to help find a cure.
The foundation hosts yearly fundraising events including Casino Night, and A Night To Remember (wine tasting dinner), all taking place in the Philadelphia suburbs.
