We appreciate you coming from far and wide and, for us, your presence is as good a gift as any. We would like to use our wedding to give back, strengthening the community and honoring a family legacy.

In lieu of gifts, donations to ABCD: After Breast Cancer Diagnosis and The Marcy & Wayne Oldenburg Family Fund at the Medical College of Wisconsin are greatly appreciated.

After Breast Cancer Diagnosis is a nonprofit founded by Courtney's mother, the late Melodie Wilson Oldenburg, in 1999 and focuses on one-to-one mentoring support for people affected by breast cancer - patients, families, and friends.

Wayne Oldenburg is the current board president of ABCD, and their annual fundraising event, Date With A Plate, is something that brings James and Courtney to Milwaukee every spring. Your generous donation will provide mentoring training and outreach support.


The Oldenburg Family Fund was started by Wayne and Marcy Oldenburg with the goal of jumpstarting the initiative to make Froedtert and The Medical College Of Wisconsin a national center of excellence for breast cancer care and research.

 Wayne Oldenburg is a current member of the MCW Board of Trustees and Marcy Oldenburg just retired as Chair of the Dermatology Department after a 27 year career. This fund benefits patient care initiatives driven by innovative medical discovery.
