Connor Hooper feels a deep connection to the mission of TGen and sees his own family in so many of our advocates and donors.
“My wife lives with a rare, inherited genetic disorder, HLRCC, which increases risk of kidney cancer. Her father passed away from a resulting cancer when she was still very young. My hope is that the advances and innovations made at TGen can help deliver earlier detection and smarter therapies for those like my wife and her late father.”
As Director of Development, Connor helps to secure philanthropic support for the Center for Rare Childhood Disorders and TGen’s Brain Tumor Unit among other TGen initiatives.
Prior to joining TGen, Connor served as a Director of Development at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center. He is a graduate of The Ohio State University, a Certified Fund Raising Executive, and member of the Association of Fundraising Professionals.
