Our mission is to increase awareness about the diseases that plaque minorities in the communities we live while expanding our outreach to help those with the least resources. To bridge the gap between the underserved families and healthcare providers. To provide these families with the access to the resources needed to help them live healthier lives.
How does your money help us? Every year we will make an annual donation to the American Heart Association in memory of Veronica Blount. Our contribution to AHA (shown above) is to support the research efforts to rectify heart disease and create awareness about stroke, high blood pressure and other heart related issues.
Your donation will also support our Blood Pressure Monitor in every home campaign. It is our belief that blood pressure monitors can save lives and while they are relatively affordable machines, many homes in underserved communities don't have one.
In addition, we want to bridge the gap between those in underserved communities with health care providers and resources that help decrease the diseases that plaque minorities, such as diabetes, high blood pressure, obesity, colon cancer and more. The way to do this is to bring resources into these communities and meet the people where they are (public schools, churches, barber shops, beauty salons, block parties, etc). Your donation will help us achieve these goals.
