Ogilvy CommonHealth Worldwide's Michael Parisi Joins the Fill Your Bucket List Foundation's Board of Directors

PARSIPPANY, NJ--(Marketwired - Aug 13, 2015) -  Ogilvy CommonHealth Worldwide (www.ochww.com), the health behavior change specialists of Ogilvy & Mather (www.ogilvy.com), and a WPP company (NASDAQ: WPPGY) (www.wpp.com), today announced that Michael Parisi, a managing partner for the agency, has been named a member of the Fill Your Bucket List Foundation's board of directors. Mr. Parisi joins eight board members who provide oversight of the national nonprofit organization.

Mr. Parisi has been actively involved in the cancer community since his time in graduate school working as a hospice counselor and end-of-life coach. Working for more than two decades in healthcare marketing with a focus on oncology, Mr. Parisi has unique knowledge of the industry and an intimate awareness of the issues that surround the cancer community.

Fill Your Bucket List Foundation is a foundation created to support adults with cancer by making a wish or dream come true. Similar to the Make-A-Wish Foundation for children, Fill Your Bucket List Foundation grants adults (21+) with cancer the financial support to create lasting memories with the people they love. The Foundation takes care of all the details so patients can relax and focus solely on enjoying their dream.

"I'm thrilled to join this board of distinguished professionals from industry, academia and patient care," Mr. Parisi said. "It is an honor to be part of extending the FYBL mission to help people find a balance and some moments of joy during times of tremendous challenge brought on by a cancer diagnosis."

About Fill Your Bucket List Foundation
The Foundation was created in 2014 by Founder and Executive Director Peggy Gibson Carroll, who has almost 30 years of experience working in oncology patient advocacy and whose life has been personally touched by cancer.

When her father was diagnosed with advanced lung cancer, Peggy had her dad write down his Bucket List. The things he wanted to do were little and tied to the people he loved the most. Going through his list created incredible memories for their entire family. Peggy realized how important a Bucket List could be -- especially for those with financial needs and no ability to make their wishes come true.
