Welcome to My Personal Page

This year marks the second year that I will be participating in the Move for the Kids 5k and on May 20th I would like our team to raise even more money than we did last year for Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago.

I am supporting this wonderful hospital because of my past experience as a patient.  When I was 12 years old, I was admitted to Lurie Children's with a defunct left kidney.  Among many other symptoms, a swollen renal pelvis had caused my blood pressure to rise to very unsafe levels which created numerous other problems for my health.  Had they not found the issue and removed the entire kidney, it is unlikely that I would be here today.

This year I will be running with the Junior Council, which is a junior board that benefits specifically the HIV/AIDs Program at Lurie Children's.  The primary mission of our board is to ensure quality pediatric care for all children affected by HIV/AIDS, regardless of their economic status.  

I hope that you take a chance to support this wonderful hospital by donating whatever you can.  Every dollar helps to support over 200,000 children in need of medical care.

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!
