In late September 2017, the Jeff Gordon Children’s Foundation committed to the establishment of a $2 million endowed chair in support of academic and research efforts at Levine Children’s Hospital in Charlotte, N.C. An endowed chair gives a doctor flexibility to pursue his or her research when financial resources for groundbreaking investigation are limited.
Javier Oesterheld, MD, the Specialty Medical Director at the Levine Children’s Hospital Torrence E. Hemby, Jr. Pediatric Hematology, Oncology and Blood and Marrow Transplant Center – fondly known as “Dr. O” – has been named the first Jeff Gordon Children’s Foundation Endowed Chair.
“Cancer remains the leading cause of death from disease in children in the United States, and better cures for children with cancer will only come through research,” said Gordon, chairman of the Jeff Gordon Children’s Foundation. “I’ve never faced anything on the racetrack as tough as childhood cancer. I won’t stop until we beat it.”

“I am deeply grateful for the support of the Jeff Gordon Children’s Foundation and their commitment to research – but even more so for their passion to improve the lives of pediatric cancer patients in our region,” Dr. O said. “This gift will prove instrumental in supporting our new pediatric cancer translational research laboratory which will open in 2018 at Levine Cancer Institute, and launching clinical trials designed to enhance treatment and diagnosis of cancer and blood disorders.”
