There is plenty of good news happening in 2017, for many people across the United Sates. But, there is one particular story of good news that is actually threefold and deserves a little extra attention. It starts with a man named Chris Piazzi and ends with the Cancer Treatment Centers of America.
Chris Piazzi is the happy recipient of a successful double transplant. It involves a liver and a kidney. He just happens to be Chair at the College of Lake County Foundation Board and Mundelein Community Bank president. And, his colleagues just happen to be elated and looking forward to seeing him alive and well.
Looking back on the procedure itself, Chris Piazzi openly admits that due to a rare medical condition going under the knife was the only option open to him. It is an admission that he makes while speaking with others. With a little more time to search his soul, he makes a deeper confession and refers to the experience as an education on the fragile nature of life. He also remembers to think, in reverence, of the person who made a most personal decision to contribute something of themselves to complete stranger.
That is why his colleagues collectively plan to make the 2017 Scholarship Golf Classic June 12 an event to honor his health and service to the Foundation. It is not just that he is an important person within the organization which makes the decision fitting. His words of wisdom and humble braveness in the face of such an experience are worthy of note.
As a sponsor of the event in June, the Cancer Treatment Centers of America is the just doing what they do in their everyday jobs in the medical field. They are helping people live better lives. On every other day of the year, they do this in a more complex way than just sponsor events.
The key to their treatment techniques is personalized care. They believe in and practice medicine through a model of executing plans in multidisciplinary care teams. The best part is they believe in doing this under one roof to make things easier on the patient.
