What is the charitable cause you are most passionate about and why?

Medical Research: In 2007 when my mom was diagnosed with cancer, lauded scientists, doctors, and amazing donors like you made her treatment possible and we witnessed her full recovery. For those of who donated to cancer research, you have personally touched my life and saved my mother’s. For that, I would like to thank every one of you.

Why do you give through the CFC?

Nothing worse then giving to an unvetted charity like those brave Krakatoans East of Java...lol (Remember this funny Seinfeld episode?)
The CFC is a simple and convenient way to connect with thousands of vetted charities, while benefitting the automatic tax deductions!

How do contributions through the CFC help your cause?

Donors like you can accelerate research breakthroughs that patients with uncurbable medical conditions urgently need.
