“Cancer touches many people, but no one took this diagnosis with greater strength of character than Tricia’s Hope’s founder Tricia Rausch, whom I’ve known since birth (yes, I’m her uncle). From getting the call about her diagnosis through watching the ups and downs that cancer brings living as a survivor, I’ve watched Tricia continue to grow her mission to admirably give back to others who share this challenge. She has evolved and grown the good work she started with selling bracelets to now leading an organization that has granted hundreds of thousands of dollars for patient relief during the decade plus since she founded the organization. I am honored to be able to participate in ensuring that it grows and does more of the good she set about to do in the second decade of Tricia’s Hope.”
