Sylvia and Pat Tylka’s involvement with CURE spans more than 13 years. They were first introduced to CURE when Sylvia attended CURE’s “A Tribute to Our Quiet Heroes” luncheon, which honors mothers of children with cancer. Meeting the mothers and seeing the faces of the children battling cancer captured her heart. Immediately, she and Pat knew this was a cause and organization they wanted to support. Since that time, their impact on the organization has been remarkable.
Before retiring, Pat served as SVP for a $3 billion technology company headquartered in Atlanta. As a part of that role, he participated in board sessions, strategic planning, and budgeting. He was responsible for the worldwide sales organization and gained extensive experience in developing and building teams and relationship-building. Pat used that experience during his six-year service to CURE’s Board of Directors, guiding strategy and bringing strong business processes to CURE that are still in place today.
