March Mania


I think it is important to always support your best friend.  So today I am reaching out to all of and asking you to support my best friend, Heather Rosenberg, and the Michael Rolfe Pancreatic Cancer Foundation.  For those of you who are not familiar, the Michael Rolfe Foundation serves as a catalyst for the early diagnosis and ultimate cure of pancreatic cancer by funding advanced medical research, public awareness initiatives, and educational programs. The Foundation also prides itself in specializing in support services for pancreatic cancer patients and their loved ones.

Unfortunately, pancreatic cancer research is extremely underfunded as approximately 40,000 people are diagnosed with the disease each year and only 25% of those people will live beyond 1 year from diagnosis.  Heather got involved in the Michael Rolfe Young Professional’s Board after her father lost his 10-month battle with pancreatic cancer in 2010.

I ask everyone to please participate in the Second Annual Michael Rolfe Pancreatic Cancer Foundation “March Mania” by following the link below to purchase “March Mania” brackets.  All brackets must be purchased and picks must be made before March 15th at 11 a.m.

This year’s prizes include an autographed Derrick Rose jersey with Bulls tickets, Apple 32GB Wifi iPad, $250 Visa Gift Card, White Sox/Cubs tickets and a variety of Chicago restaurant gift certificates!
