Thank you to Sharon Dargay, for a wonderful article sharing our philanthropic efforts towards a cancer-free world. Kelley had the opportunity to speak with Sharon and share the growth of this new 501c3.
“Right now we’re a start-up foundation. We were so blessed to be able to say we have raised this much in order to impact two grants,” Kelley LaFontaine said. “We’re excited. Part of starting our own foundation was to make sure the grant funding and research happen in Michigan.”
