    Nikki Lank Bialow

    Nikki is an enthusiastic member of the Friends of Dana-Farber who co-chaired the silent auction for the Great Chefs Cooking for Hope event, as well as the 2007 Gala Tribute Book. Together with her husband, Corey Bialow, founder and chief executive officer of Bialow Real Estate in Newton, and their two children, she devotes time and energy helping with holiday decorating and giving gifts to The Jimmy Fund Clinic Playroom.

    Nikki and Corey are active members of the King Solomon Society of Combined Jewish Philanthropies and Nikki is on the event committees for the Children's Hospital League and the Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center of Needham. In addition, she takes an active role in the parents' association at the Beginnings School in Weston, where her son and daughter are enrolled.

    While living in New York, she served several years on the Advisory Board of Sloane Women's Hospital, a division of New York Columbia Presbyterian Hospital. She was instrumental in organizing events for the fundraising campaign which helped establish the Thain Center of Maternal Fetal Medicine.

    Having two young children, Nikki chose to take a break from the business world and is fully dedicating her time to philanthropic causes. Her family has a long history of philanthropy and their charitable trust has helped to support the major hospitals in the Greater Boston area by establishing the Lank Center for Genitourinary Cancer Research and the Lank Radiology Department at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, the Lank Center for Radiation Oncology at Beth Israel Hospital, the Lank Center for Thoracic Surgery at Brigham and Women's Hospital and the Lank Family Comfort Room at Children's Hospital.

    Nikki says, "Corey and I have personal reasons for becoming active in philanthropic causes stemming from the examples set by our parents and grandparents, as well as having witnessed too many friends and family members who have been stricken with tragic illnesses. We have used these life experiences as motivation to get involved and feel it is our obligation to give back to society as a way of showing our appreciation for having been blessed with two beautiful, healthy young children and a loving extended family."
