BENEFITING: Remember Betty Foundation
In 1986 I fell in love with America's number one boyband "New Kids On The Block" and has stayed fan all these years. You are probably wondering why that is relevant for this fundraiser, but here is the thing: Danny Wood's mom Betty Wood died from breast cancer in 1999 and ever since then he has been helping breast cancer patients through different breast cancer charities. When NKOTB reunited in 2008 Danny saw an opportunity to reach more people with the story of his mother and her fight against this terrible disease. Fans of NKOTB started raising money for the charities Danny supported by walking and running at breast cancer awareness races across the US and in Canada. In 2009 Danny founded his own charity "Remember Betty" which donated to organizations researching in finding a cure for breast cancer. In 2015 Remember Betty started to help minimize the financial burden associated with breast cancer for patients and survivors by providing them with direct financial support so they can focus on recovery and quality of life It is my hope that you will kindly help me support this amazing man and his foundation Remember Betty so that they can continue minimize the financial burden of this terrible disease.
