Dan & Meg Kresach, Co-Founders

Dan and Meg Kresach have been married for 28 years and were and still are the proud parents of their beautiful and only child, Olivia. Olivia lost her battle to Brain Cancer/GBM, at the age of 22 in 2014, after a short 4 month battle with this terrible disease. Dan and Meg vowed they would do all they could to stop this terrible disease. Their vision has been the creation of their foundation called BrainUp. Their goal is to raise money for research and to find a cure. Dan Kresach is co-owner of Melody Mart Inc., in Homewood, Il., and Meg Kresach is a nurse by education and has worked the last 25 years of her career at Silver Cross Hospital in New Lenox, Il., as the Executive Director of Managed Care. Together, they are working tirelessly for BrainUp.
