Featured Projects

Moving Through Cancer underscores the fact that exercise is medicine in cancer. More than 15,000 studies have proved that fact, but only 20% of all patients are told exercise can aid recovery and prevent recurrence. Created by the Fund in collaboration with the American College of Sports Medicine, this 20-minute film highlights inspirational exercise programs that are in place both domestically and abroad. Our goal is to distribute the film free of charge to everyone who has been touched by cancer.

The Fund worked with Elizabeth Bonker and her family to create her nonprofit organization whose mission is to ensure that all nonspeakers with autism have access to communication and education. Her valedictory speech went viral and is considered one of the most impactful speeches of its kind.
