The LRC/CL mourns the passing of Joyce Powell from Los Angeles, California.

Joyce was among the pioneers who funded Concern Foundation back in the 1960s. She was an ardent supporter of cancer research at the LRC for more than five decades. She was a unique character that inspired the community of the Concern Foundation and the many young researchers supported by Concern grants. Senior LRC Faculty and staff remember with gratitude her site visits together with members of the Powell Family, her questions, ideas, and warm words of support. We shall miss Joyce, as well as her friendship and leadership.

Our hearts are united today with Rick, Debbie, Nancy, Mike, Linda, and their families. May we be comforted in the eternal legacy of love and compassion that epitomized the meaningful life of our dear Joyce.
