As 2018 draws to a close, I am so excited about everything we’ve accomplished together since Tony Foundation launched in the spring. In just a few short months, we’ve raised thousands of dollars to help families in urgent need of assistance – families whose primary income earners have been diagnosed with cancer, and are no longer able to work due to their health or treatment status. It’s the same situation I was in with my family … twice. And I know how important that financial help can be in such a stressful time.

That’s what I’ll be thinking about during the holidays. We’re focused on doing whatever we can to ease the burden families are facing due to cancer, and thanks to your generosity, we’re about to help our first family in 2019.

The impact of corporate sponsorship

In addition to individual donations, I’m thrilled to report that we’ve been talking to some companies that fully support our mission and are looking at ways to help us fulfill it. Partnering with Tony Foundation provides opportunities for a company to help a family (or families) in need with their own sponsored award. If your company is looking to partner with a cause that provides real, critical assistance where it’s needed most, in a transparent and direct manner, please reach out to me so that we can discuss the possibilities. I’d love to chat about it with you, and/or your company leadership.

To all of you, your family and loved ones, I wish you the merriest of holidays and a happy new year. And I sincerely thank you for your support.
