Father of Ivan
Pedro first learned about Fanconi anemia in 2001 when his then infant son Ivan was diagnosed. Over the last 20 years, Pedro and his wife Marina have connected with dozens of other FA families, participated in community events, and held a number of fundraisers. Pedro is the Director of Account Operations at Northwestern Memorial Hospital in Chicago, Ill., and has over 20 years of experience and extensive background in facilities trades, building automation, and mechanical systems.
Pedro brings to the board first hand knowledge of the FA world, based on his personal experience as a father. He hopes that his personal struggles as a parent of someone with FA can inform the organization and also provide support to affected families in the future.
