Let's find a cure for childhood cancers!

Hi friends,

On July 25, 2019, Greta & I will participate in the Young Associates Board’s (YAB) 17th 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. This is an important event to us because we remember our friend Meera Leister who died way too young. Fresh off our last 5K, we are going to run another one for this very worthy cause.

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.
