Athlete Bio

"You have cancer." Three words that will change your life and the lives of those who love you. Most of us have witnessed the effects of this diagnosis, but what can we do? The answer is MORE. We can raise awareness, share our stories, donate, raise funds, and/or be advocates. We want a world where cancer is defeated. My team and I are competing once again in the Chicago Decathlon. We are raising money to fund Children's cancer research at Rush University Medical Center through the collective athletic efforts from professionals who want to make a meaningful impact. Last year, we were extremely competitive and proud of the contributions we were able to make through your donations. This year, we are calling our team "Mac Attack" to honor and to give tribute to our friend, Mac, who lost his battle with brain cancer this past year. I feel privileged to be able to use my athletic ability to share his story and inspire others to keep up the fight. “When you die, it does not mean that you lose to cancer. You beat cancer by how you live, why you live, and the manner in which you live.” ― Stuart Scott, The way Mac lived after his diagnosis inspired me to do even more for people in this world. His journey showed me how to embrace pain and push beyond it, not to waste time on trivial things, and to always be present in the moment. I compete to give hope to those who are currently fighting, those who are in remission, and to those who may receive this devastating diagnosis in the future. Thank you for caring and for deciding today to do MORE!
