Thanks to your generous support, the Timothy Francis Jones Foundation was able to make another donation to the Rush University Medical Center’s Cancer Center. On March 7, 2018, the foundation presented Nicklas Pfanzelter, MD with a $5,000 check for cancer research. As many of you may remember, Dr. Pfanzelter specializes in Oncology and Hematology at Rush and directed the treatment of Tim’s cancer. His thoughtfulness, resourcefulness and honesty have made him more family than a foundation partner. We are confident he will produce positive outcomes for future patients and pass that knowledge along to others.
Before the presentation, we took time to reminisce about Tim and discuss new breakthroughs in cancer treatment and community healthcare initiatives Rush University Medical Center was involved in. Among the topics were Rush’s participation in West Side United and their efforts to bring CAR T-cell therapy to bear in the fight against cancer. After the presentation, the conversation continued about areas where the foundation could make a difference such as West Side United and the TCF Summit Chicago for testicular cancer.
The foundation’s delegation consisted of Bernadette and Edward Jones, Demo Salazar, Shareeff Williams and Rich Lomax. Dr. Pfanzelter, Mary Marron and Kevin Gray represented the hospital. On behalf of the foundation and Rush University Medical Center, we would like to thank you for making it possible to fulfill Tim’s wish.
