Pinnacle Gives Back to the Fight Against Childhood Cancer with St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital

May 14, 2018

If you have ever been to Pinnacle Consulting & Recruiting’s office, your first interaction with a Pinnacle team member was most likely a friendly, warm smile from our Office Manager, Mary Halerz. To our guests, Mary is the first person you meet. To our team, Mary is the glue that keeps everyone together. She is the “Office Mom.”

Mary joined Pinnacle’s team in April 2014. As the fourth official team member, she has witnessed Pinnacle grow from a team of three recruiters to a team of ten. That being said, we are truly lucky to have Mary with us today. At the age of 7, Mary was diagnosed with a stage 4 Wilms Tumor. She was told she had very limited time left and was sent home on Christmas Day. Against all odds, after undergoing several rounds of treatment, Mary beat her cancer. To date, Mary continues to receive long-term follow-up care from St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and participates in the research for understanding the long-term effects of cancer treatments on children.

To give back each year, Pinnacle is proud to sponsor the annual Pittsburgh St. Jude Gala and support Mary as she continues to work with St. Jude to give children just like her a fighting chance both now and in the future.

Therefore, on behalf of our team at Pinnacle, we would like to thank St. Jude for presenting us with the opportunity to once again support such an amazing organization.

If you are interested in learning more, donating, or supporting St. Jude by volunteering at next year’s gala, please contact us!
