What is the charitable cause you are most passionate about and why?

Medical Research: In 2007 when my mom was diagnosed with cancer, lauded scientists, doctors, and amazing donors like you made her treatment possible and we witnessed her full recovery. For those of who donated to cancer research, you have personally touched my life and saved my mother’s. For that, I would like to thank every one of you.

Why do you give through the CFC?

Nothing worse then giving to an unvetted charity like those brave Krakatoans East of Java...lol (Remember this funny Seinfeld episode?)
The CFC is a simple and convenient way to connect with thousands of vetted charities, while benefitting the automatic tax deductions!

How do contributions through the CFC help your cause?

Donors like you can accelerate research breakthroughs that patients with uncurbable medical conditions urgently need.

What is the charitable cause you are most passionate about and why?

Leukemia and Lymphoma (LL) is the cause I'm more passionate about. In May of 1997 my mother was diagnosed with LL; this diagnosis came so unexpected. My mother fought hard for months, underwent chemo and radiation, ultimately being cancer free by Oct. Unfortunately, that cancer-free period was short lived, by Dec of 97 she went back to the hospital, passing on Dec 23, 1997. Since then I've been doing my small part by donating to several Leukemia and Lymphoma charities through CFC. Our donations do make a difference!

What is the charitable cause you are most passionate about and why?

My most charitable cause I am passionate about is the American Diabetes Association. The reason why I'm so passionate about this charity is because my twin brother has battled with Type I and II diabetes as a young adolescent and even today as an adult. The adverse effect it takes on a person I would wish that for anyone. Seeing young and older people having to in some cases attend dialysis three to four times a week saddens me. I pray there is a cure for this someday.

Why do you give through the CFC?

I give in efforts for doctors and scientists to be able to have the funding to research a cure as well as assist hospitals to be able to accommodate those who struggle either with medical bills, transportation arrangements as well as promote preventative care etc...
