“I have been involved with the ACS since my days at General Motors when I was part of the inaugural team that brought the Cattle Baron’s Ball to Metro Detroit. I have been passionate about the mission of ACS, because like many of us, we have been personally impacted. My first spouse Debra fought a courageous battle with ovarian cancer for 15 years, and we shared a tremendous life together living and travelling around the world, until she passed away with her fourth battle.

I am chairing the Research Committee of ACS Illinois because I believe that we can make significant progress in the battle against cancer with all the continuing advances in research, especially in biomedicine and gene sciences.”
