What inspired you to get involved with ELB?
My dad. Since his mom died of colon cancer when he was in his 20s, he’s been involved with organizations like the ELB in the cities that we lived in across the country. My dad made sure I understood the impact cancer has on patients since I was a young kid and made sure I knew how important community support is for their families.

How have you seen donations directly impact the Cancer Center?
Through the dedicated medical teams that have treated family and friends & through community support organizations like Gilda’s Club. Unfortunately, many of us have too many examples of cancer in our lives. I am fortunate enough to know many cancer survivors… all made possible by donor support and state-of-the-art care to ensure each family member and friend got the best treatment possible. In addition, my family and I have volunteered at chapters of Gilda’s Club across the country to ensure that cancer patients and their families receive the community support they need outside of treatments and find a little joy during a difficult time.
