When I started my company, I wanted to help as many causes as possible with the resources I had. I know that every cause is worthy, but it isn't possible to cover them all. Maybe someday… So, I set out to choose the most important causes. I decided to write out a list of all the diseases that had affected my life. Surprisingly, the list got a lot longer than I’d imagined.
It was such a treat for me to interview my incredible brother. He's a genius, hilarious and incredibly talented. Although his diagnosis changed his life forever, he still remains optimistic and continues to thrive despite the challenges it could pose. His attitude is an inspiration. Here's his story told in his own word
I’m the first person to walk right by the person at the table outside the grocery store asking for donations. But this changed me. It changed my entire perspective and now I can’t wait to see that person at the store so I can happily pull out my dollar and put it in their jar. I gave for 28 days straight and this is what happened...
As I began to lay the foundations for Revive, I knew one of the most important aspects of my mission would be to choose charity partners that were truly committed to giving the highest percentage of their dollars collected back to finding a cure and helping patients and their families. Through lots of research, I came across Lung Cancer Alliance (LCA) and found that this organization was one I’d be honored to work with. They are committed to raising money to fund all the aspects that go along with a lung cancer diagnosis, from prevention to treatment and even helping families of patients.
I want to change what happens when someone gets lung cancer or breast cancer, or any disease. We can do this, together, by donating to these causes and helping them find cures to help all the people of the world, their families and friends. This is my dream, and I'm trying to make it come true.
