APF Fellow Dr. Ran Lador
A Man with Backbone and a Heart  
Thanks in part to a grant from APF, when I return I will be the only one in Israel with training in spine oncology. My plan is to establish a dedicated spine oncology service at Tel Aviv Sourasky Medical Center that will serve all of Israel and abroad.

The APF grant is very helpful. It helps us maintain our regular lives with our traditions, including Jewish school, which we knew we wanted, but is a cost.
