Last week we had the opportunity to meet Michelle Ernsdorff, founder and CEO for Compass to Care, and learn all about her organization. Compass to Care is dedicated to scheduling and paying for the travel arrangements families require to seek the best cancer care for their children. Her passion for children with cancer and their families stems from her own experience as a childhood cancer patient and survivor. Michelle launched Compass to Care in honor of her parents’ financial struggles to travel for the best cancer care that ultimately saved her life. Her mission is to help families that face challenges like her family did.
Compass to Care has an event coming up, of which they were taking photographs for in our back alley, called the FASHION FLASH Fashion Show featuring Illinois State Troopers. On Friday, June 1st, the dedicated State Troopers who see the benefit in helping those in need will become runway models for a day and showcase the latest trends in fashion.
It should be a great event that supports an even better cause. If you’d like to attend, you can learn more about the event here. If you are interested in learning more about the cause, please check out Compass to Care. Some of the photos that were taken of a few State Troopers in our back alley, as well as more information on the show, are shown below.
