MCHS FOUNDATION - BOARD OF DIRECTORS

Meet the board of directors for Marshfield Clinic Health System Foundation.

Letter from MCHS Foundation Board Chair (2021)

Gratitude is at the heart of our mission at Marshfield Clinic Health System. As a surgical oncologist at Marshfield Medical Center-Marshfield, I have seen firsthand how support from people like you makes a real impact for the patients we serve. That’s why I’m honored to serve as chair of the MCHS Foundation Board of Directors.

Each day, I get to experience powerful moments of connection, hope and healing for patients and families that are possible because of your donations. You help brave people fight cancer by providing support programs, comfort items, the latest technology and equipment, access to research, free lodging for patients and even help for families in need. You help brave people fight cancer.

I also have the opportunity to form deep relationships with my patients, many of whom are so grateful for the care they’ve experienced. Through the Foundation, I’ve witnessed how these patients see the chance to give back as a way to continue their healing process. There is nothing more gratifying for these patients and families than paying it forward and helping others on their journey.

Our rural Wisconsin communities, along with the rest of the world, are experiencing unprecedented times. But along with the remarkable individuals I have the privilege of serving with on the MCHS Foundation Board, I know that we can meet these challenges with your continued support.

Thank you for joining us in our mission to enrich lives.
