Your Participation Makes a Lasting Impact

When you take part in a fundraising event, you strengthen Northwestern Medicine's ability to provide world-class medical care so patients live longer, healthier lives. Among those patients is Shelly Battista, who delivered healthy twin girls in December 2022, just two years after being declared cancer-free.
