CHR's Charity of the Month: Conquer Cancer CoalitionEach month we highlight a different charity that CHR feels is a worthy cause. June's charity, Conquer Cancer Coalition, is particularly special to us as CCC and CHR have been linked from the very beginning.

Michael Zuker, brother to CHR's founder Ed Zuker, was diagnosed with lung cancer in 2003 and passed away four months later. In 2004, Michael's son Jonathan,  Director of CCC, got together with his brother Matt and his mother Susan to honor Michael and raise money to fight cancer. “My father was treated at Mass General Hospital,” says Jonathan. “His doctor told us that ‘every dollar counts’ and we decided to do something to help. A few weeks later, my mom Susan wondered if we could raise money with sponsored MA license plates.”
