Scott J. Beigel Memorial Fund

We were honored to fulfill a grant request to the Scott J. Beigel Memorial Fund. The mission of the Scott J. Beigel Memorial Fund is to send at-risk children touched by gun violence to summer sleep-away camp. This allows for a melding of Scott’s love of camp with his love for children. Scott J. Beigel was a teacher, a cross-country coach, a counselor and a mentor. He was killed at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School by an active shooter who took the lives of 17 innocent people, including Scott. He died a hero at school protecting the lives of his students.

Colorado Ovarian Cancer Alliance

We were happy to provide Grant funding to Colorado Ovarian Cancer Alliance (COCA), specifically helping to expand the Carol’s Wish Financial Navigation. This program was created to tackle problems with access and affordability to quality care for women diagnosed with ovarian cancers. COCA’s plan is to expand their reach to all women suffering from gynecologic cancers. The goal of the program is to alleviate both the financial and the medical consequences of what is known in medical literature as “financial toxicity.” Financial Toxicity refers to the common experience in the American health care system of the cost of care becoming a factor in the patient’s ability to heal.
