“I give for the child who’s been tested since birth
Who never once questions her abilities or worth
I give not because she thinks, ‘Why me?’
But because of who she wants to be.
I give for the parents unable to cope
Who are drowning in grief and devoid of hope
I give what I can in dollars and deed
So they’ll always have someone to turn to in need
I give for the sister, I give for the brother
Who crave the attention of Father and Mother.
They are often so busy, their challenges so tough
That they can’t always focus on the ordinary stuff.
I give to provide incomparable care
To youngsters and illnesses, exceptional and rare.
I give thanks every day for the blessings I see
And to The Genesis Foundation for what it gives to me.”
“My first contact with The Genesis Foundation, known then as The Genesis
Fund, was back when their office was at Franciscan Hospital. The company
I worked for was very involved with one of their largest events and I was
invited to volunteer at The Patient Family Picnic. Needless to say that day
I fell in love with these fantastic children. So here I am some 26 years
later still volunteering for this amazing organization that does so much
to help these very special children and their families.”
“Being on the board allows me to see first hand, how the
Genesis Foundation’s support of The Feingold Center
benefits so many children in need. My time, financial
support and advice all goes directly to those that need
it the most and the impact is evident when you hear
from the children and their families.”

“I give to the Genesis Foundation because it is the only organization
I know that specifically helps organize and pay for the extra care so
needed by families with children affected by genetic disorders. The
care and counsel provided by these funds is phenomenal and worth
every dollar you can spare.”
Chairman; Board of Directors
“There is nothing better than when a patient shares a huge smile.
Whenever I meet a patient and their family and they share their journey
with me, it is so heart warming to hear about all the progress and
accomplishments the child has made and to see them beaming from
ear to ear is priceless.”
