Steve Paschos, MD, a resident in internal medicine at Rush University Medical Center, appeared on Fox Chicago News this week to talk about his fund-raising campaign for Leukemia & Lymphoma Society Man of the Year honors.

Paschos, who was diagnosed with leukemia at age 17, said his experience fighting cancer inspired him to go into medicine.

“I love the interaction between patient and doctors,” said Paschos, a Rush Medical College alum. “I loved what I had with my doctors and I wanted to share that from the opposite end of the spectrum as a physician with patients.”
