Giving Back to Froedtert
Honoring a Father and Gifted Care Giver
The late Mark Adams, MD, was a gifted transplant surgeon who touched the lives of countless patients at Froedtert Hospital. He was admired not only for his surgical expertise, but also for his compassion, warmth and integrity. He died unexpectedly last year at age 60.
The Mark Adams Endowment for Transplant was created with a gift from the estate of Robert W. Doucette, former CEO of Milwaukee Insurance Group and a generous civic leader. Mr. Doucette was grateful for the care that he and his late wife, Mickey, received at Froedtert. He had a keen appreciation for the Palliative Care and Transplant programs, in particular.
Families of the late Robert Doucette and Mark Adams hope the creation of the Mark Adams Endowment for Transplant will inspire additional gifts to the Froedtert Hospital Foundation from friends, colleagues and grateful patient families.
Doucette’s daughter, Diane Mancini, was a patient of Dr. Adams and remains just one example of his living legacy. Dr. Adams’ daughter, Rachel Greenup, MD, is a fourth-year surgical resident at Froedtert Hospital. She and her brothers, Nick and Cameron Adams, along with Diane have a shared interest in growing the Mark Adams Endowment for Transplant — to honor this man who meant so much to them and to help advance the Transplant Program.
Income from the Mark Adams Endowment for Transplant will help to support the Transplant Program’s patient care, research and education initiatives. The Transplant Center at Froedtert and The Medical College of Wisconsin is nationally recognized for excellent outcomes with solidorgan transplants, including kidney, pancreas, liver, lung and heart.
