Why do I support CANCER FUND?

Many of my grandparents have had cancer, as well as many friends. I support Cancer Fund because it is one of the fundamental problems for humanity to solve.

My Story

I am an avid hiker/skier living in Westminster, Colorado. I grew up in Hudson, Ohio and studied Finance at Ohio State. I created a brand with over 1 million followers around the country, develop real estate in the Caribbean, sell residential and commercial solar, and, most importantly, I help grow CANCER FUND’s community of investors supporting cancer innovations.

I joined Cancer Fund to connect investors with life-saving ideas. Cancer Fund investments impact future generations by producing treatments and cures that salvage lives and years for millions of diagnosed patients around the world. CF is a brilliant organization because it provides investors with a vehicle to potentially profit from benefiting humanity, now and in the future. Helping others is at the core of who I am, and building out this community is an honor and a privilege. I am always happy to chat with anyone who is curious to learn more about our team, the mission behind it, and the investments we are making to hopefully create a healthier world.


CANCER FUND is a venture capital firm where you can INVEST in early-stage companies moving breakthrough cancer research from the lab to patients. It’s an opportunity to support to an important cause – who hasn’t been touched by cancer? – in a unique way that can provide a return on your commitment.

We’ve identified over 450 startup companies working on the hard task of getting cancer innovations to patients. And those 450 are just the start. Those companies are seeking over $2 Billion to bring their innovations to patients. Without it, their innovations stay in the lab and don’t save lives. And the journey from lab to patient doesn’t benefit from the support we provide to cancer research. It takes more.
