Welcome to my fundraising page!

Imagine yourself receiving that call from your doctor’s office with unexpected news.  Everyone is living a normal life while you are living life with news so heavy that you feel alone.  There are so many thoughts in your head.  How are you going to break the news?  How are you going to deal with your pain and confusion?   How will others take it?  Will other stand by you and understand?  Will other stay strong to keep you strong?

Back in 2009, my family went through the devastation.  My brother-in-law found out he had Stage 4 Glioblastoma Multiforme Brain Cancer (GBM).  GBM is a very aggressive form of Brain Cancer with a survival rate of 2-3 years.  After a hard fight Michael passed, in March 2011.  A year later after Michael’s passing I discovered Gilda’s Club during the Agents of Hope Gala through a work functions.

Gilda’s Club is an organization where no one needs to fight their battle alone.  Gilda’s Club is where men, women, and children, whose lives have been affected by cancer – along with their families and friends, as well as those who have lost someone with cancer.  Gilda’s Club helps ensure anyone impacted by cancer is empowered by knowledge, strengthened by action, and sustained by their community. 

Sponsored by my employer, Magellan Corporation, I’m very excited to be part of Team Gilda running the 2017 Bank of America Chicago Marathon.  In honor of my brother-in-law and other loved ones who are fighting and fought the battle.     

My fundraising efforts will help continuation of the innovative program including more than 350 free activities each month, from healthy lifestyle workshops to support groups to social activities - all essential complements to medical care.  All activities are available to anyone impacted by cancer, as well as family and friends.

How any donation can make an impact:

  • $5 buys art supplies for one child to enjoy Noogieland activities
  • $10 provides parking for someone who might not otherwise be able to attend Clubhouse activities
  • $25 supplies beads for Jewelry-making classes at one of our satellite locations
  • $50 funds a yoga class, one of our most popular activities
  • $100 helps one child impacted by cancer spend a day at camp
  • $250 provides entertainment at one of our member social events
  • $500 will fund outreach programming, taking GCC into the community for one week
  • $1,000 will fund GCC@school programming for one month, helping children with cancer transition back into their classroom

Please help me raise money for an amazing organization by making a donation.  I truly appreciate any support you can provide.  It benefits a great cause!

If you can't make a donation at this point, help me reach my goal by sharing this page to friends or loved ones you think might be interested in contributing!

Thanks so much for your generosity!
