A New Lease On Life, Chris Piazzi

Many people are diagnosed with cancer every day. This disease takes it toll on the patients and their families from the moment of diagnosis. Chris Piazzi, chairman of the Board of the College of Lake County Foundation and president of Mundelein Community Bank, was diagnosed with a rare liver disease. Over time the disease took its toll on his body and during one of his tests, cancer was found on his kidney. After his team of doctors collaborated, they decided that a dual transplant of his liver and kidney would be the only way he would survive. On February 27, he received a blessing and got his transplant.

The College of Lake County Foundation decided to honor Chris Piazzi and the work he has done for the Foundation on June 12, at their golf tournament. The Foundation raises money to help students reach their potential academically with helping financially. Chris Piazzi wrote a letter to the foundation saying that while they support education to the highest, he learned another valuable lesson in life and that was life was to short and that by the kindness of others, he received his second chance.
