As many of you know, when Chad got sick - life got very, very difficult. We were down to one income with a mountain of expenses and worries on our mind. Our friends and family were the biggest support base with their donations as there were very few organizations out there aimed at helping people like us. I dedicated this post to the amazing foundations that actually did reach out to help us. Air Compassion for Veterans, BobMC Foundation, New Day Foundation, Southwest Airlines and Red Stag stepped up to the plate. I don't expect our little "Cavitt Cure" foundation to end up being a huge thing mainly due to time and resources but my personal goal is to help at least one family a year, in some small way.
We will look into some local fund raising in our community but we may also do merchandise that, if you want, you can purchase in support of the cause and 100% of the profits will be dedicated towards this organization and helping families in the future!
Update: November 9, 2015.
Due to continued health struggles and financial set-backs, we've not yet set up this foundation, so we're unable to have fund raisers, etc., at this time. For the time being - we are just helping families as we're able from our own pockets. Thus far, we've been able to help two different families with a monetary donation. We'll continue to do this as our life permits!
If you do want to contribute to helping families as well under the Cavitt Cure, let me know and we promise every cent donated will go in a fund for other families. With that said, we don't have anything official to offer yet besides our word :)
Cavitt Cure, Appendix Cancer Awareness Bands - $2-3 (Shipping Included within USA)
Please Remember: This is something up and coming. At this time, I am just soliciting feedback. You can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or send me your input on Facebook. Technically, we have some bands currently but I would rather not start collecting for the organization until we have our own life in order and get things launched officially and legally. If you still want to help our family directly, you can find information here.
