A brighter future for kids with brain cancers.

About Tali's Fund
Tali’s Fund was established by Kim Doron and Ori Doron in loving memory of their daughter, Tal Esther Doron, who died at age 4 after a brave struggle with a rare and aggressive brain tumour called ATRT.
HELP US to honour Tali’s legacy by supporting researchers who are working tirelessly to move us closer to the day when children suffering from rare brain cancers can receive safe and effective treatments that not only improve their chances of survival, but also maximize their quality of life as they grow from childhood to adulthood. We collaborate globally to promote awareness of research, resources, and treatment options related to childhood brain cancers.
For 4 short years, Tal Esther Doron (Tali) was our living, breathing, beautiful, loving, affectionate, happy child. She loved playing with her twin brother, Noam, and her older brother, Amir. She enjoyed singing, arts and crafts, puzzles, books, computer games, swimming, playing at the park, playing hide and seek, riding her bike, and being silly! Her favourite colours were pink, purple, and green. She loved Dora the Explorer.
In October, 2006, Tali was diagnosed with ATRT – a rare, aggressive, brain tumour. It was the beginning of a long and challenging road. Tali passed away peacefully on August 26, 2007.
Tali’s sense of fun, determination, and resilient spirit were her hallmarks.
We hold on tightly to our precious memories and derive great comfort from knowing that during the long months of treatment and aftercare, she seized the opportunity, whenever possible, to be a child like any other.
