Support RFG 2018!!

On July 2018, I will participate in the Young Associates Board’s (YAB) 16th annual Run for Gus 5K Run/1 Mile Walk, which raises funds to advance research and support services at Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago for patients with brain tumors.

Pediatric brain tumors are the second leading cause of cancer-related deaths in children and are fatal for almost half of those diagnosed. Yet, only $1 million is given annually for pediatric brain tumor research by government agencies. YAB has raised more than $1.5 million to date to further this lifesaving cause.

Please support my efforts by making a gift today! Any amount will make a difference, and all donations are tax-deductible and will be acknowledged by Lurie Children’s Foundation.

With your help, more children battling brain tumors can receive the best healthcare possible and the opportunity to reach their greatest potential. Thank you!

My Personal Web Log


DON'T Forget your BEADS of Courage!!
Beads of Courage program allows patients to express themselves through arts in medicine. The program helps our patients diagnosed with cancer in the Division of Hematology and Oncology string together beads that provide something tangible to use to tell their unique stories during treatment. It also gives patients a sense of ownership over their experience as well as recognition of the courage displayed in each visit a child makes to the hospital for treatment.
