WHAT WE DO & WHY WE DO IT
Laurel's Legacy is a local nonprofit organization for those facing the struggle of life threatening illnesses. The goal of the Legacy is to provide financial assistance and support to individuals and families in need of a light at the end of their tunnel. The Legacy has been active since mid-2015 and was founded from Laurel's Luau; an annual event raising money for cancer research and patient advocacy that has been a staple in our community for over a decade.
The Legacy will be known as the Foundation for All Things Right. Life sometimes deals us a hand we just never could have prepared ourselves for, and it can seem impossibly difficult to understand why physical pain and suffering are so often met with financial burden. We hope to help make things right for those we are able to fund, as well as create a community of support.
As one may be able to imagine, we will not be able to directly help everyone, especially as we first start to grow. While we get our footing and begin to raise funds, we will provide assistance in a number of ways. Individuals and families may apply for assistance, and referrals will always be accepted. For those we cannot directly fund, we will do our best to share stories on our website and social media vessels to invoke support from the community. This support may come in the form of personal donations, scheduled meals, rides to appointments, an ear to lend, etc.
