As many of you know, my good friend Kate Palermo has battled leukemia over the majority of her adolescence and was a patient at Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago. Thanks to Lurie and their tremendous care and support, Kate is now cancer free and entering her freshman year at the University of Michigan. Beyond saving Kate's life, I was beyond impressed with Lurie and their commitment to the care of children and support for their families.

I would invite you to donate to this great institution to help ensure many more children, like Kate, have the opportunity to receive the best care and make a difference in the lives of the more than 173,000 patients treated at Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago each year. Support my efforts for the 2017 Lurie Children's Marathon Team by making a donation today. Every dollar raised means a brighter and healthier future for our children.

All donations are tax-deductible and will be acknowledged by Lurie Children’s Foundation.

On behalf of the patients and families of Lurie Children’s, thank you for your support!
