BOARD OF DIRECTORS
ADAM RINDE, ND
President, Founder, Jordan's Dad
Adam has been leading Blankets For Cancer since its inception in 2016. The organization was born from discussions and interchanges Adam had with Jordan towards the end of life. To make tragedy into a blessing; we can transform the experience toward better outcomes for those who follow. Adam has years of experience in health care as healthcare provider and in non-profit work as volunteer and fundraiser. And, his unique emotional connection as a pediatric cancer parent allows him to understand what is needed to improve quality of life of pediatric cancer patients and their families.
Adam, his wife Amy, and Jordan's brother Eitan live in the greater Seattle area.
Jeremy is Jordan's uncle and was by Jordan's side through thick and thin. He is a devoted advocate to the Blankets for Cancer mission.
Jeremy started his career in the car business at the age of 16 as a “hydro technician” also known as the kid with the hose washing cars in the service department.
After graduating from Towson University in 1999, Jeremy moved to New York and continued working in the car business, holding many positions in various dealerships, eventually working his way up to running the day to day operations of the entire dealership.
Jeremy is actively involved in New York’s Westchester Jewish community and serves on the boards of the Westchester Jewish Council, the Jewish National Fund, and The Young Israel of White Plains, where he and his family have been members since 2011. Jeremy also serves on the board of the Waner Children's Vascular Anomaly Foundation.
Amy L. Abramson is the controller for a private family in New York City. As a Kelly School of Business graduate (hoo hoo hoo Hoosiers). Amy obtained her CPA in 2000 and has worked her way up from general audit, to Controller in wealth management. She has been the treasure of Blankets For Cancer since its inception.
Amy and her husband Jeremy reside in White Plains with their three children, Sydney , Alexander, and Emma. As a full time accountant and mother of three, Amy has her hands full, but still makes time to be involved with the children's schools, family's synagogue, serving on a multitude of committees and volunteering her time.
One of Amy's biggest passions is camp; she works closely with the leadership of Sunshine Day Camp, a full-summer day camp in Pearl River, NY for children with cancer and their siblings.
