Meet the Carly's Club Team
Robin Nusbaum is a familiar face to many Carly’s Club members. She plans all the fun events, activities and programs that members enjoy. She also works hard at organizing fundraising events that support the important pediatric research and patient care that takes place at Roswell Park.
Robin has worked for Carly’s Club since November 2006, and says her favorite part of her job is getting to know members and their families and having fun with them at events and programs.
“I love to plan events and coordinate programs for Carly’s Club members and their families,” said Robin, “because it gives them to chance to have fun together and meet other families who know what they are going through.”
When she isn’t planning the next fun Carly’s Club activity, Robin is a dancer who has taken tap, jazz and hip-hop lessons since she was four years old. You can reach her at Robin.Nusbaum@roswellpark.org
Kristen Fix has worked with pediatric patients at Roswell Park for five years, and she says “every day, my job is a little different.” She helps kids and parents deal with the stress and emotions they face during treatment by playing games with them, making crafts or just sitting and talking.
Kristen thinks Carly’s Club helps members because the events and activities give them the chance to forget about everything they are going through, even for just a little while. “Carly’s Club gives kids some ‘normal time’ back in their lives,” said Kristen.
When she’s not working with Carly’s Club members and their families, Kristen likes to spend time with her dog, Murphy. Kristen rescued Murphy from a shelter and thinks he may be part Westie and part Labrador—so she calls him a “Westador!”
Kelly Callahan joined the team in September of 2014. She is excited to help on the fundraising side of Carly’s Club, as she works with the community when they host events for our benefit! She hopes to ignite the spark of philanthropy in Western New York, and continue with Carly’s Club Team Cure where Robin left off.
"I am thrilled to have the opportunity to work at Roswell Park and coordinate with our community fundraisers. It's truly inspiring to see our community members come together to support pediatric cancer," said Kelly.
When she’s not sending out event packs, Kelly is planning programs for Roswell’s teen program, Teens Living with Cancer (TLC)!
