Jada Pirius, Board Chair
I first learned about the vital work of Cancer Legal Care in 2013 from my best friend, Chris Heffelbower. She became involved as a volunteer attorney and later became the Senior Staff Attorney and Partnership Ambassador for Cancer Legal Care. Chris was a colon-cancer survivor, and as such she was very passionate about working on the consequential legal issues faced by cancer patients and their families.
Chris was unable to continue the work that meant so much to her. Despite being a true warrior, her cancer returned and as is the case for too many people dealing with cancer, her beautiful life was cut short. I became a board member of this remarkable organization to help support the important work Chris cared about so deeply.
Jada is a graduate of Hamline University with a degree in psychology. She has a background in human resources and currently works as a stay at home parent.
