“A couple of years ago, I readily welcomed the opportunity to serve as counsel for LRG. I had some knowledge of the mission, saw first-hand the devastating effects of the disease and enjoy giving back through the provision of pro bono service. It was easy to accept the position. My decision to serve on the Board, however, is the result of observing the commitment and drive of the officers, staff, Board and volunteers at LRG, as well as the remarkable efforts and progress made towards enriching the lives of those effected and finding a cure for GIST. I look forward to following these examples and contributing in a meaningful way.”
