Jenner & Block Associate Andrew F. Merrick has been appointed to the Board of Directors of Compass to Care, The Mike & Sandy Ernsdorff Childhood Cancer Foundation.   The Foundation is a Chicago-based charitable organization that ensures under-served families can access life-saving cancer treatment for their children by scheduling and paying for travel arrangements from home to where the children are being treated for cancer.  In a press release about the appointment of Andrew and two other board members, Michelle M. Ernsdorff, founder, CEO and board chairman, said, “As we embark on a significant growth phase for our organization, [Andrew and the other new Board members] will bring both the passion for our cause and an individual set of expertise that is necessary to help us achieve our goals of serving more children and families who face the burden of traveling for cancer treatment.”
