About Be Brave Foundation:
In February 2013, Mina and Jeremy Chambers’ son, Joshua, was diagnosed with very high-risk Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL). The outpouring of support from friends and strangers led the Chambers family to establish the Be Brave Foundation, which supports the families of pediatric cancer patients with financial assistance. In addition, Gadget Grants provide new or gently used iPads, tablets, handheld gaming systems, and laptops to give young patients a distraction. Joshua has been cancer-free since June 2013. In the first 6 months of operation, the Be Brave Foundation raised over $ 60,000 and supported more than 100 Central Florida children and families affected by pediatric cancer.
About III & Long:
Santonio Holmes established the III & Long Foundation in the fall of 2011 in honor of his son Santonio III, who suffers from Sickle Cell Disease (SCD). Knowing first-hand the difficulties families face battling this disease, Santonio believes he is meant to lead the crusade against Sickle Cell Disease. “As a parent of someone who has been diagnosed with SCD, I know how financially expensive and emotionally taxing the hospital bills and medication can be. My goal is to help families that cannot afford the proper treatments by providing grants to organizations that assist these families.” The mission of the III & Long Foundation is to help in the research to finding a cure for Sickle Cell Disease and to assist families affected by SCD.
