David Goldwasser spent most of his career as a teacher and a nurse. In 2004, he founded a charity called The Marisa Fund in memory of his daughter, whose death in 2003 sparked the need to do something to eradicate pediatric cancer. David donates a portion of all book sales to support this effort. The Marisa Fund works tirelessly to raise funds for research, to find a cure, and to provide financial support for children with cancer and their families.
