Anu first met Scott and his parents at the time of Scott's diagnosis with T-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia. Throughout Scott's journey through his cancer diagnosis and relapse, Anu was always struck by the Kienhofer family's togetherness, positivity, and ability to find the best in each moment, no matter how difficult those moments were. This Foundation embodies those traits and spirit that were so clearly present in Scott.

Anu did his undergraduate at the University of Texas at Austin and medical school at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston before transitioning to Children’s Hospital and Research Center Oakland for pediatrics residency. He was inspired by the resilience of the children and families dealing with a cancer diagnosis while in residency and pursued a career in pediatric oncology, continuing his training in Oakland for fellowship.
