Stefan has been a leader in the community and now a public voice through experiencing the heartbreaking disease that his thirteen year old daughter had to endure.
Stefan has initiated the start of Cancer Response Team, Inc. to help families cope and to give hope after receiving a diagnosis that their child has cancer. He understands the emotional and physical pain that is experienced by the entire family when a child is diagnosed with cancer. Every individual deals with circumstances and situations in different ways, but experiencing that moment of terrifying shock, feeling of helplessness and disbelief that comes with a cancer diagnosis is indescribable, and something that no family should have to endure.
Before Stefan’s daughter, Ashley, passed from astrocytoma brain cancer, he made a promise to Ashley and committed that he will do everything in his power to help make a significant change for families whose children are affected by cancer.

She was an original CRT board member and is thrilled to be back as of February 2017 to serve as the Chief Operations Officer. She is passionate about supporting families of children with cancer that wish to seek alternative or integrative treatment options often not covered by insurance. These families deserve the opportunity to explore a variety of ways to treat this awful disease while experiencing some relief from the coinciding financial burden.
