May is Brain Tumor Awareness Month

May is Brain Tumor Awareness Month and the futures industry is teaming up to fight for one of their own and children with brain tumors. https://team.curethekids.org/fightingforfutures2018

Meet Beckett.  Beckett is the son of Matthew and Millie Ryba.  Becket is like  most 7 year-olds except he has been battling a brain tumor since 2011.  Millie works for the CME Group and Matthew used to work in banking  until he left to stay at home full time to care for Beckett.  Beckett is one of 28,000 children in the U.S. currently fighting a brain tumor.  That’s 13 families a day who receive the devastating diagnosis that their child has a brain tumor – the deadliest of all childhood cancers.

Fellow Futures professional, Julie DeMatteo, Managing Director, Asset Management at RJ Oasis, met the Ryba family and felt that more needed to be done.  Fighting for Futures is the tagline for the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation (PBTF), the largest non-governmental funder of research for pediatric brain tumors.  Julie currently sits on the Illinois Chapter Board for the PBTF and quickly made the connection to the industry and fighting for futures.  The Futures Industry has always been very generous in support of their own and quickly found a way to support the Ryba family and families like them during Brain Tumor Awareness Month.

Donations to the PBTF can be made directly at the Fighting For Futures donation page –https://team.curethekids.org/fightingforfutures2018

There will also be a networking and fundraising event to support Fighting for Futures on Thursday, June 14th at Little Toasted, 300 S Riverside Plaza, Chicago, IL
