Typically, we think of females as the Make It Better stereotype – multitalented, multitasking, creators of win/win scenarios, re-inventors of self, fundraisers. Rarely do we think of males the same way. However, there’s someone you probably know coming to Chicagoland to raise money for skin cancer research, who clearly earns the title “Make It Better Man” –Christopher Knight, child star of the Brady Bunch
Knight will share his peripatetic, curiosity fueled, multiple career, remarkable life story at “Skin For Life 2015” – benefiting The Skin Cancer Foundation – at the Deerfield Hyatt on May 28th. This should be entertaining as well as rewarding.
Knight earned his childhood Brady Bunch gig despite being an extreme introvert. He was even more interested in how things work, science and business than acting. So he’s also studied, worked or started businesses in geology, technology, home furnishings and dermatology (including founding the world’s leading tattoo remover “Dr. Tattoff.” He fit in a few reality tv shows in recently, too.
Dr. Amy Forman Taub, a dermatologist who founded the state of the art clinic Advanced Dermatology and skinfo Specialty Skincare Boutique in Lincolnshire and Glencoe, launched the Skin For Life fundraiser 5 years ago. Using her heart and entrepreneurial spirit this way definitely proves Taub is a Make It Better woman too.
The energy, entertainment, inspiration and good intentions on stage May 28 should make your life a little better if you attend the 5th Annual Skin For Life. Added benefit – you’ll be contributing to finding a cure for skin cancer too.
