What the foundation means to me was a way to bond an socialize with people who understand what I was going through. It made me feel more confident that I could make it that we all could support one another. All though we have the support of our love ones they’ll never completely understand. And most foundations aren’t lead by someone who knows the struggle which really makes a difference. If I could describe the Foundation in one word it would have to be “FAMILY”. They personify understanding, strength, love to so many people, not just me and that is truly a gift from GOD.
