Why I Give to the Foundation: Adam Spartz
During the years he spent working at the bedside, he also got to know many patients and families, and he would often hear them talk about life circumstances. That would cause him to think about how fortunate he was and also wonder how he could give back. "One of the ways I do this is by donating to the CRH Foundation," he said.
Adam and his wife, Chelsea, who is a nurse practitioner in the Cancer Center, have donated to a variety of departments over the years, often supporting those departments where they have worked. Additionally, all three of their kids were born at CRH - another reason they support giving back to the health system. "For our family there is no shortage of areas or initiatives to support, which is such a great thing about our Foundation," Adam said. They currently split their donations between Pulmonary Services and Oncology Services. Adam is appreciative of the many options to choose from, and he's also appreciative of the Foundation staff. "Not only does the CRH Foundation have a wide ranging list of funds to support, but the staff are also wonderful to work with," he said.
Originally from northern Illinois, Adam is a lifelong Chicago Cubs fan. He's raising his kids to be Cubs fans, too, like only a good dad should.
