deLeuze Family Supports Discovery of a Non-toxic Cure for Lymphoma
Napa winemaker Norman deLeuze and his family saw great promise in research projects led by UC Davis Internal Medicine’s oncologist Joseph Tuscano, M.D.
Norman deLeuze was a man accustomed to chasing big dreams. By donating $313,000 for a UC Davis Health System endowment, his philanthropic passions are making a positive difference.
His wife, Rosa Lee, and children, Brett, Julie and Robert, have continued to perpetuate Norman’s memory after his passing by raising an additional $294,000 to support this meaningful cause through support from ZD Wines and donations from close friends.
“Norman deLeuze, founder of ZD Wines, was a successful Napa Valley entrepreneur and world-class winemaker. One of his most significant legacies is what he did during his lifetime as a lymphoma patient and generous philanthropist to help find nontraditional approaches to treating his disease. His family carries on that dream with their endowment,” says Joseph Tuscano, M.D.
