February 24, 2017 was a landmark date for the Timothy Francis Jones Foundation. The day marked our organization’s initial step toward realizing Tim’s wish of bringing comfort to others fighting cancer. It was only fitting that our group’s first contribution should be given to the place that helped bring comfort to Tim, Rush University Medical Center.
In a small ceremony at the Cancer Center’s 10th floor office, the foundation’s board members presented a check in the amount of $5,000 to Nicklas Pfanzelter, MD. Dr. Pfanzelter, who specializes in Oncology/Hematology at Rush, directed the treatment of Tim’s cancer and this donation is intended to help fund his research. The Timothy Francis Jones Foundation hopes the doctor will continue his great work in rendering comfort to his patients and progressing toward positive outcomes in the fight against cancer.
The presentation was a humbling experience for all who participated. It also produced a great amount of pride in our organization and all of the people who have supported us. Your support made this event possible and helps to keep Tim’s legacy alive. Thank you.
