Never miss another interview! Join Devin here: Scott and Angela Uhland were as sad and afraid as any parents when their three-year-old Lucia was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. Two years of treatment left her healthy and starting school with her peers. Scott always hoped to find a way to give back to the team of people who treated Lucia. He was especially fond of the caring people who structured fun experiences for her in the hospital during treatment. It made the whole experience tolerable. So tolerable, in fact, that her memories of the hospital include many positives, including, he admits, some of her favorite foods. When Scott learned about Johnson & Johnson’s CaringCrowd global health crowdfunding platform, he realized he’d found the way he could give back. Scott is a PhD scientist at J&J. He decided to raise money for the Bass Center for Childhood Cancer and Blood Diseases at the Lucille Packard Children's Hospital at Stanford, specifically targeting their programs supporting fun for cancer patients.
