On August 16th, the family of Aretha Franklin confirmed that the 18-time Grammy Award-winning singer/songwriter died of pancreatic neuroendocrine cancer. Croixstone leaders Mark and Patti Weber each lost a parent to pancreatic cancer, and both actively volunteer with the Charlotte Affiliate of the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network to increase awareness of the disease and raise money for research. Maureen O’Boyle of WBTV (Charlotte’s CBS Affiliate) recently interviewed Mark about his passion to rewrite the future of pancreatic cancer. Read the interview here.
The Croixstone team enjoyed welcoming WBTV’s Maureen O’Boyle (Anchor/Reporter) to our loft today. We enjoyed working with Maureen for a photo and video session to promote PurpleStride Charlotte 2017…the walk/run to end pancreatic cancer hosted by the Charlotte Affiliate of the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network (PanCAN) on September 9.
Croixstone’s Founder and Managing Partner, Mark Weber, serves as a volunteer Media Relations Chair for PanCAN. Patti Weber, Croixstone’s Chief Experience Officer, volunteers as Teams Ambassador for PurpleStride Charlotte.
