Welcome to My Personal Page
On July 25, 2019, 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.
My younger brother, Will McKone, was diagnosed with a brain tumor in September of 2017. Despite his brave, strong, and admirable fight, he passed away in November of 2018. He was the happiest, brightest, funniest kid I had ever met and I aspire to be like him every single day.
Throughout his fight, he would end every email, every phone call with the same two words "Staying Positive". With runs and fundraisers like Run for Gus, I am staying positive that we will find a cure for pediatric brain cancer- even the rare and impossible cases like my brother's.
I run for Gus and I run for Willie.
