Climb for a Cause

In partnership with Northwestern University’s Feinberg School of Medicine, I am looking for your help in raising $5,000 to fund early stage cancer research at the Lurie Cancer Center.

On April 10th, I will attempt to climb the infamous “Moose’s Tooth” in the Ruth Gorge of the Alaskan wilderness. The climb will be to the 10,335 ft. summit via a route called “Ham and Eggs”, a technical and challenging climb that ascends 3,000 vertical feet ranging from steep snow to vertical ice.

I recently joined the Associate Board of Lurie Cancer Center, with a focus on advancing cancer research, education, patient care, and community benefit. I am raising money for our Innovative Research Award, which will provide critical seed or bridge funding to an early-career scientific investigator conducting basic, translational, or clinical cancer research studies. This award will fund novel research at a crucial stage in the physician or scientist’s career, with the promise of leveraging this support for larger grants from other governmental or nonprofit agencies in the future.

Thank you so much for your support!
