Amanda met the love of her life, Mike on February 25, 2011 after Amanda’s father, Rich, introduced them. They married in 2016 and gave birth to their sweet daughter Vivian in 2018.
Amanda fought a nearly two-year battle with breast cancer, during that time she maintained her work and education schedule as well as gave birth to her daughter. Amanda was such a giving and caring person, which carried into her profession, as she cared so much for her patients. Amanda and her family were so grateful for the compassion that the Doctors, Nurses and staff at University of Chicago and M.D. Anderson in Houston provided to her. The family would like to thank her employer, University of Chicago for their support and consideration, especially to her colleagues at 4-west, CCD who showed her such kindness.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Ronald McDonald House – UC Comer – 5444 S. Drexel, Chicago, Illinois 60615. The family is also accepting contributions to support Vivian’s education.hide
