Funding Cancer Research

The Foundation is committed to helping find an effective treatment for soft-tissue sarcoma, the rare form of cancer that Chris had. The Foundation has partnered with the Northwestern Memorial Hospital Foundation in Chicago, IL where Chris was treated and specifically with Dr. Mark Agulnik who leads soft-tissue research at Northwestern. With several on-going clinical research protocols and the formation of a sarcoma-specific database, the funds provided by the Foundation will help develop these activities and are of utmost importance.

The Foundation is proud to report that we have already made eleven donations totaling $138,000 to Northwestern Memorial Foundation. A special thanks to everyone who has made this possible by participating in a Foundation event, by supporting a participant by pledges or by making a donation.
