What makes a great Medical fundraiser?

Medical expense fundraisers are often some of the most touching that we come across. Whether it’s the daughters raising money for their dad’s cancer treatment or a bunch of work colleagues banding together to help lessen the load of a co-worker, these tend to really bring out the best in people. And because they are so personal to the people leading the fundraiser, other really see how important it is to them and chip in however they can - either by giving money or fundraising on their behalf. And in regards to to raising money for nonprofits and research organizations to help find cures and treatments for diseases, it’s pretty evident why this is so important and we really can’t say anything else that would add to that. If you’re looking to get inspired for a cause to fundraise, make sure to check out our Explore Causes page to get your gears churning.

    My name is Avery and I am a 17 yr old girl who suffers from Cystic Fibrosis. CF is a life-threatning, genetic disorder that causes the body to produce large amounts of mucus that mainly affects the lungs and pancreas, but in fact, affect many other organs too. In the lungs, mucus clogs the airways and traps bacteria that leads to infections that damage the lungs. This leads to respiratory failure and what is called end-stage lung disease. I am currently in end-stage lung disease now. Due to my condition, I am in desperate need of a bilateral double lung transplant. I have had to temporarily relocate to St Louis, MO from Florida, where I have had to leave my family and friends behind. The reason why I am setting up this fund is to help my dad with all the medical bills, moving expenses, and the cost of my surgery. Just my transplant alone costs over 1 million dollars. Even though insurance covers a lot, it does not cover all of the expenses. Any amount helps alleviate the financial pressure that my dad has...

    As some of you know, Manny (Lolita) DeSousa was struck by a car in Boston on Friday, December 4th and remains in serious condition. She has sustained serious head, brain, and face trauma. Because of the extent of her injuries, Manny has a long road ahead of her. Anyone who knows her, knows that Manny is beautiful inside and out. Our goal is to have the focus remain on her recovery and not on how her and her family will pay the high cost of the care she is receiving and will continue to receive for the foreseeable future. Manny has touched so many lives and this is our chance to show support in her fight to full recovery.
