Ferrell Foundation News

We are excited to announce our recent donation of $20,000 to MD Anderson in support of Breast and Kidney cancer research.

2020 was a challenging year for everyone especially for non-profits and their fundraising efforts.  Because of the generosity of our supporters during a time of uncertainty, we were still able to make this donation. This is in addition to $5,000 the foundation gave earlier in the year to the Leukemia and Lymphoma society.

As you know, we started this foundation after facing our own cancer battles and wanted to turn these life changing events into something positive. You have helped make that a reality and we cannot thank you enough!

Please take a moment to watch these two videos from Dr. Hortobagyi and Dr. Tannir from MD Anderson. We look forward to having in person events at some point in 2021.

Stay safe and stay healthy!

Did you know the @DeptofDefense has a medical research program, the @CDMRP? Last year, lawmakers allocated $20 million for #kidneycancer research (thank you!). Today, we’re asking that they increase it to $30 million for continued medical progress. @kidneycan @renalmedullary
