Mark Light is the Co-founder and President of The Pancreatitis Foundation, a non-profit organization who's mission is to provide funding to advance research leading to a cure for pancreatic disease and provide support for patients and their families.

Mark joined us on the podcast to discuss the work he is doing with the foundation as well as the #EmmeSmiles fundraising campaign. Emily (Emme) Theisen, a 4-year-old from Noblesville, who is battling pancreatitis, a rare condition for a child of that age.

Last week, Emme underwent a surgery at the Cincinnati Children's Hospital to remove her pancreas to help relieve the pain. So Mark, and his foundation, have partnered with the Theisen family to help cover some of the medical costs. One of the most recent fundraising efforts was Mark's cross-country bike ride that raised about $30,000 to help support the Theisens. <a href="https://pancreatitisfoundation.org/pedaling-coast-to-coast-for-the-warrior-princess/" target="_blank">If you would like to donate to the cause, please visit their website</a>.
