I Am Who I Am Foundation for Down Syndrome

Hi, I am Holly Simon and the mother of 5 kids. When my 5th child was born here in Chicago everyone in the delivery room noticed that Nate had Down Syndrome. Unfortunately the usual CONGRATULATIONS were not heard. The doctors and nurses all said that they were sorry to my husband and I. Can you imagine? The fears? The horror? “Sorry” must mean he was dying.

Spike TV’s Frankenfood Show Mash Up

I had a blast being on the Spike TV show, Frankenfood! A competition-reality series following New York executive chef and restaurateur Josh Capon and actor/musician/restaurateur Tony Luke Jr on their insane quest to find new and unique flavor combinations by pairing existing dishes together (think chicken flavored cheesecake and turtle tacos!?!) – the result tends to either be a delicious dish…or an awful miss! Check out this crazy spastic mash-up!!

Guess what office distraction cost firms up to $13 billion in lost productivity?

Challenger, Gray & Christmas, a Chicago-based outplacement consultancy, calculated this $13 billion lost in productivity, states that its motive was to highlight the cost of distractions in the office. “We are not trying to demonize fantasy football,” CEO John A.

Being Charitable in Your 20’s with Cruise Chicago for a Cause

For the past few years I have been involved with Susan G. Komen 3 Day Event (a 60 mile walk spanning over 3 days). Since 2008 our team has raised over $75,000 towards the cause. I thought, hey, I’m doing my part, right? But, breast cancer just scratches the surface. On top of illnesses and disease, our nation, even our city of Chicago, faces serious issues with bullying and cruelty, poverty, gangs, unclean water, sex trafficking, the woes in this world are incredible and like most 20-somethings, actually, like most middle-class Americans, these causes were not affecting me.
