How did you get connected with Med City Foundation and how did you become interested in its mission?
Hearing Kristina speak at a AM Expresso event hit home as my son Carter (age 7) was diagnosed with T-cell Leukemia in December of 2013. During these difficult times since Carter’s diagnosis, our family has experienced amazing support from friends, family, neighbors and even complete strangers. MedCity Foundation felt like a perfect opportunity to pay it forward.
