We’ve been blessed with so much, so we feel a responsibility to pay it forward and give back to others. We’ve chosen the following charitable organizations to support:
Families Helping Families (FHF) builds houses in Mexico for families in need. Using donations of time, money and material from both sides of the border, FHF constructs solid homes of block and wood that will endure for generations.
Many of the recipient families donate their own time to build their houses. Their participation gives them an investment in their house and can result in them receiving title to their home.
When they can, they donate money to the foundation to provide funding for houses for others.
Volunteer efforts benefit those who receive the houses, but they also change the lives of many who volunteer and donate their precious resources of time and money. Volunteers from north of the border pay all their own expenses and contribute financially for supplies and to hire local laborers who perform the skilled tasks needed to finish the houses.
The Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF) is committed to achieving prevention and a cure for breast cancer. They provide critical funding worldwide for cancer research to fuel advances in tumor biology, genetics, prevention, treatment, metastasis and survivorship.
Since their founding in 1993, BCRF has raised more than a half billion dollars for lifesaving research. Through a unique and streamlined grants program, they seek out the brightest minds in science and medicine and give them the necessary resources to pursue their best ideas.
As a result, researchers are able to make discoveries and design new approaches to address all aspects of breast cancer – and do so in record time.
The thousands of women and men suffering from breast cancer today depend on BCRF. No institution can conquer this disease alone, but together with BCRF, they can.
The IBC Network Foundation was formed to educate people about Inflammatory Breast Cancer (IBC) . IBC is a rare and very aggressive disease in which cancer cells block lymph vessels in the skin of the breast.
It accounts for 1% to 5% of all breast cancers diagnosed in the United States. Most IBCs are invasive ductal carcinomas, which means they developed from cells that line the milk ducts of the breast and then spread beyond the ducts.
IBC progresses rapidly, often in a matter of weeks or months, and is either stage III or IV at diagnosis.
The IBC Network Foundation members attend research meetings, serve on grant committees, advocate, educate, and run online support groups. They also are intensely focused on funding high quality research.
