CHICAGO - Feb. 22, 2022 - PRLog -- Northwestern Mutual – Chicago presented its Childhood Cancer Impact Lemon Award to Christina I Collins, CFP®, CPWA®, CLU®, ChFC®, RICP®, Private Wealth Advisor. The award recognizes leadership in philanthropic work to support the financial planning firm's Childhood Cancer Program. The firm will donate $1,000 to Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALSF) in appreciation of her service.

"Christina is committed to giving all children the chance to live life to the fullest by accelerating the search for a cure and better treatments," said Nikki Perryman, Director of Strategic Operations and co-chair of the Childhood Cancer Impact initiative. "She exemplifies a servant leader, and her passion for giving back reaffirms we are in the business of making a difference in people's lives."

Collins has been a long-time supporter hosting a lemonade stand with her kids, donating to silent auctions and participating in corporate fun runs. With COVID-19 hitting nonprofits hard, she was compelled to find a way to continue supporting ALSF. Through the Virtual End Childhood Cancer series, she formed a team to participate in a virtual childhood cancer run and raised more than $15,000, which will fund 300 hours of research.

Cancer is the leading cause of death by disease in children younger than 19 in the U.S., yet childhood cancer research and services are vastly and consistently underfunded. Every $50 raised will fund one hour of research into cures and better treatments for kids with cancer.

To date, Northwestern Mutual, through its Foundation, has raised more than $40 million for the cause and helped to fund more than 540,000 hours of research to help discover life-saving treatments for children affected by the disease. Since starting its philanthropic program in 2014, Northwestern Mutual – Chicago has raised more than $650,000, funding 13,000 hours of research.
