“Hey dog lovers, be proud of your dog as people because humans and dogs are created by the same loving GOD!” – Chan-Zuckerberg
I’m so proud of my dog because my dog gives me unconditional love. Because my dog is generous with his affection, loving at all times, tolerant of my errors, forgiving of my screw-ups. Dr. Chan Zuckerberg
Bio of Dr. Chan Zuckerberg
Priscilla Chan is an American pediatrician and philanthropist. She and her husband Mark Zuckerberg, the co-founder and CEO of Facebook, Inc., established the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative in December 2015, with a pledge to transfer 99 percent of their Facebook shares, then valued at $45 billion.

When Priscilla Chan began her residency as a pediatrician at San Francisco General Hospital, she warned her attending physician, “I want to tell you up front: I’m a crier.” And cry she did. “When she’s feeling exhausted or overwhelmed, and sometimes when she’s really ecstatic, it’s just one of her ways of expressing,” says Meg McNamara, the doctor who received that warning and has since become a good friend of Chan’s. Today at the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative, where Chan is co-CEO, her tendency to cry is openly acknowledged. She has cried at all-hands staff meetings, at big public gatherings. There are tissues in all the conference rooms, colleagues say, just in case she needs one. She even cried at her first interview for this article, when discussing difficult aspects of her childhood.
