Without informal caregivers our healthcare system would collapse

Informal caregivers are volunteers working without compensation to care for a family member or friend.

  • 1 in 5 Americans are caregivers at this very moment
  • 1 in 3 Americans will provide care this year
  • 80% of all care in America is provided by informal caregivers
  • Informal caregivers provide $375 billion in unpaid services each year

We have learned many things since establishing the Foundation. At the top of the list is just how many people have a heart to do good, but also how difficult it is for those individuals and organizations to raise the funds they need to fulfill their mission.

Several years ago we determined that it was within our mission “to care for those who care for others” to address this problem. We have worked with the A-thon Project to develop a professional fundraising system and today we launched www.a-thon.org to help those who are caring for others.

My Story

On Easter Sunday 2005, after a heroic battle that was both too short and too long, I lost, Sharon, my wife of 25 years to cancer.
