We are pleased to share that The Valerie Fund is one of the charitable organizations that we will work with for our upcoming investment symposium in May! The Valerie Fund focuses on providing comprehensive care to children with cancer and blood disorders. What makes their program so unique is that they provide each patient and family with a team of specialists who give unconditional support throughout their journey. One of the key programs that The Valerie Fund provides is a scholarship program towards post-secondary education that allows the children in their care to pursue their dreams after completing their treatment.

My first day of outpatient chemo I was able to meet college students who wanted to pursue the medical field. We talked for what seemed like hours about our favorite traditional dishes. They helped me forget I was getting treatment and helped me feel normal. The Valerie Fund helped me personally navigate my feelings, and allowed me to let my guard down They are currently helping me stay on rack with school and medical bills. When I am not receiving treatment at The Valerie Fund Center, I enjoy organizing my Senior activities for my class as the secretary. I also love planning online game and movie nights with my friends and siblings.
