What motivates your desire to give back?
Providence St. Jude Medical Center has served the community for many years and has proved to be one of the best hospitals. However, not many people got the benefits of knowing it or leverage the resources. It is time to help the medical center expand its presence.
Why are you supporting the medical center?
Medical field is related to most people sometimes in their lifetime. We can all improve the experiences and provide the support when people are most vulnerable.
Why did you agree to join the foundation board?
I wanted to embrace the opportunity to give it back and pay it forward for my community.
