This September cardiothoracic surgeon, author and television personality, Dr. Mehmet Oz joined Zellmer Wellness Foundation founder Mary Agnes Zellmer and Inez Toledo in New York at the Cantor Fitzgerald offices to promote and raise money for the foundation. Zellmer Wellness Foundation is one of many charities that will share in the money raised from this world wide event.
About the Foundation
In 2014 the Zellmer Childhood Disease Foundation will change it’s name to the Zellmer Wellness Foundation. This name change reflects the positive commitment of the family and it’s Board of Directors and Advisors, and the passion to help individuals, living with chronic illness, live full lives both physically and mentally.
What started as a small family operation selling pumpkins from our family farm in Iowa has become a national foundation. Over the past ten years the family has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars to help fund research, education and programs throughout Chicago.
