Another Person Lost to Cancer

I just got an email from a fellow law student regarding one of our faculty. I was so sad when I read it and am hoping to help them. If anyone is interested in donating please contact me @

Dear Students,

Many of you may know Catherine Zografos, the secretary in the Career Development Office. I regret to inform you that this past weekend, her son, John Baum, passed away due to cancer that had spread throughout his body. Unfortunately, Catherine does not have the $1,850 to pay for her son’s cremation and there are no payment plans available—they require the money to be paid in full, up front. So, the Career Development office is accepting donations to help Catherine in this difficult time. Whether you know Catherine or would simply like to help another in a time of need, any amount donated is greatly appreciated. If you are able to, please bring your donation (cash or check made payable to “Cash”) to the Career Development office. Sharon Booth will be collecting the donations in her office.

Catherine is SO grateful to everyone who has supported her during this incredibly challenging time. She said that she never knew how many people cared about her, and that was something that made this time easier for her. We all are part of the Shepard Broad family and your generosity and compassion are truly appreciated.

Thank you and have a wonderful day,
