Eric Lefkofsky – The Carpet Salesman who Changed the World

If you could choose anything in the world to change and make a difference, what would it be? It makes no difference what you choose. As long as it is important to you personally. Anything can be changed, improved and accomplished with teamwork. Eric Lefkofsky, born in Detroit in the late 60s, probably had no idea when he was in high school, how much of an impact he would have on people, later on in his life and more information click here.

According to Wikipedia, Eric started out as a carpet salesman. He was not a billionaire. The community probably knew the cashier at the local corner store, but had no idea who this carpet salesman was. He went to college, got married, and starting climbing the ladder to success. In 2006, Eric and his wife, Elizabeth, knew exactly what is was that they wanted to change and improve to make a difference in this world. That was the birth of The Lefkofsky Family Foundation.

The foundation was born out of a passion they both had to make a difference for families. Families that they didn’t know personally, but needed the assistance of advanced technologies in medical care. Teaming up with a group of researchers at Tempus enabled the Lefkofskys’ to go beyond one on one patient care in cancer treatment to helping people miles away from the city boundaries.

When a foundation starts out to help a community, one has to look at how that can change the world. Research is not limited to boundaries or borders. One medical discovery will play a part in changing the lives of numerous families. The next time that one encounters the person at the store that they think is only a cashier, remember, Eric Lefkofsky was a carpet salesman. His family had a passion. A passion that someday, might be the cure for a family of someone you know and learn more about Eric.
