Donations to St. Marcus School

St. Marcus School, founded in 1872, is the largest urban Lutheran school in the U.S. “What makes St. Marcus so unique,” says Superintendent Henry Tyson, “is demonstrated by our exceptional results in a place that’s proven tough to get good results.” The government does not give enough financial support to deliver an exceptional education to each child, explains Tyson, but WHR’s philanthropic contributions have helped to bridge that gap. “Access to great education in a city where a great education is hard to find is transformational,” says Tyson.

The school, with two campuses just four blocks apart, is located in a predominantly low-income, inner-city neighborhood with a vision of working to ensure that every family has access to high-quality education in the city of Milwaukee. Its 2019-2020 State Report Card received five stars, meaning “significantly exceeds expectations.” Few schools in the inner city and even fewer that are low income and predominantly African American receive this type of State Report Card, explains Tyson. St. Marcus follows graduates for eight years and reports a 90% high school graduation rate.

WHR’s employees also participate in the St. Marcus Christmas Angels program. “Lots of our families are on tight budgets, and they cannot always bless and celebrate their children during the holidays with presents, and that can be upsetting. WHR has stepped in and said, ‘we will give and share what we have with people who have a lot less,’” says Tyson. Tyson believes the City of Milwaukee and our country have significant segregation. “It’s so beneficial for employees of WHR to meet and interact with our families, since it creates bridges. Anytime you can build bridges, it’s transformational for the students and their families.” WHR is a suburban company west of Milwaukee, Wis.

WHR Founder and Owner, Roger Thrun, who is originally from Chicago and raised lower middle class, reflects on WHR’s philanthropic efforts with both St. Marcus and Mayo Clinic. “It doesn’t matter what color someone’s skin is, all that matters is that our money and efforts are going to great causes and that we can help someone,” says Thrun. “I feel fortunate that WHR is able to help people in other communities and I can see tangible results from our philanthropic efforts. I know that St. Marcus School is influencing and shaping kids to be successful for the rest of their lives.” A cancer survivor himself, Thrun understands how important it is to receive good healthcare. “I also know that on any given day, someone is getting a personalized cancer plan that WHR paid for through our research funding program. This program saves lives.”

Funding Cancer Research at Mayo Clinic

Mayo Clinic’s Hepatobiliary and Pancreas Surgeon, Surgical Oncologist, Dr. Mark J. Truty’s, M.D., M.S., revolutionary research practice has found a proven way to help pancreatic cancer patients who have been told elsewhere that they are out of options. “There is such a stigma associated with pancreatic cancer,” says Truty. With the standard level of care, the survival rate is 5% after 5 years, dependent on the cancer Stage, explains Truty. His research practice has found a way to significantly increase those survival odds, giving patients much more time to enjoy their lives – even for some patients who have been told their cancer was inoperable. “WHR’s generous philanthropic contributions have made a massive impact and help to keep my program alive,” says Truty. The contributions have also drawn attention to Truty’s program. Many researchers are clamoring for support but having a benefactor like WHR points a finger at the program and makes it easier. “Lots of medical research is going into discovery, but I want to see something translational,” says Truty, who explains his research directly helps patients now.

胰腺癌的治疗通常是连续进行的。使用一种药物,如果不起作用,就尝试第二种药物。"特鲁迪说:"时间在流逝,用这种方法治疗会失去时间。他的方法以相当不同的方式解决这个问题。患者将得到个性化的化疗治疗,这些治疗方法已经在Truty的研究实验室中被证明对该人在手术前缩小肿瘤有很高的可能性。"Truty说:"标准的护理水平是不够好的,我们需要给病人一些特殊的东西。 他对WHR的支持表示感谢,他说:"WHR的老板 Roger Thrun ,他明白有比经营一个成功的企业更重要的东西,Roger明白回馈的重要性"。

"是的,我们购买房地产,是的,我们帮助受让人寻找搬家公司,但当你把它归结为,我们只是在帮助人们。梅奥诊所的特鲁迪博士和圣马库斯学校的 亨利-泰森 ,真正在改变人们的生活。特鲁迪医生正在拯救生命,而圣马库斯学校正在影响那些已经处于严重劣势的孩子,并为他们的余生提供一个积极的启动平台,"瑟伦说。Thrun对他的所有员工和客户表示感谢。他为WHR在25年后仍在不断发展壮大并能对其他社区产生如此积极的影响感到自豪。
