Why I Support the American Cancer Society (ACS)

As an oncologist, I see so many patients facing this disease. One in three Americans will battle cancers in their lifetime. I am inspired by my patients and their families on a daily basis. As oncologists and scientists, we are always looking for ways to move the needle in cancer care.

The ACS is proud to be a supporter of women in cancer research. Currently half of the ACS’s grantees are women, most early in their careers. I have recently been chosen to be a ResearcHERS ambassador for the ACS. ResearcHERS: Women Fighting Cancer is a movement that engages women to raise funds to directly support women cancer researchers. Help raise the funds needed to fuel HER next big discovery.

Taking part in this event gives me the chance to make a difference and honor those touched by cancer by raising funds for groundbreaking research and services for people dealing with cancer.

Funds raised support cancer patient programs and groundbreaking research that can help save lives. This event also celebrates over 15.5 million cancer survivors nationwide. 15.5 MILLION. That’s huge. That’s why I’d love your support.

If you are able to donate, you may be funding the next groundbreaking discovery in cancer care!

I am a practicing, board certified hematology/oncology physician in Chicago. I speak on topics ranging from the impact of social media on healthcare, how physicians can utilize social media, how to write Op-eds in the medical world, gender equity and barriers to career advancement, and topics in GI oncology and immunotherapy. My goal is to explain complicated topics in simple terms. I also enjoy writing and you can find some of my writing on this site. I am mother to a strong willed three and a half year old girl and twin baby boys, and a wife to a gastroenterologist. I look forward to connecting with you.
