A word from our Founder, Florence ..... 

" A great week it's been working alongside Yvonne and the staff here at CPK!   Our volunteers, Kyra and Claudia, were also amazing to work with!   I am so grateful to be able to offer our free services to all the families I had the opportunity to meet and chat with!   And again, thank you Jessica Sterner for all your hard work in acquiring our Sponsors and community donations!   We could not have done it without you all!"

 


THANK YOU ANGELA ASHER AND ELEANOR EVANGELISTA FOR CREATING SUCH A FUN AND MOTIVATING AFTER SCHOOL SEPTA/FUN FOR CURE, INC. ART PROGRAM!   

What a wonderful time we had at Waverly School in Eastchester for the past two years!   Let's do it again!

 

Reminder to all SEPTA district representatives:  

Please contact us ASAP to register your district's after school program with us!   We are still offering SEPTA AFTERSCHOOL ART AND THERAPEUTIC RECREATION PROGRAMS for all SEPTA MEMBERS!   A minimal fee may be collected by each SEPTA group to cover materials and extra staff.

 

 

 

 

Our history is short and sweet!  We've been incorporated since 2009, and our membership has always been free, including refreshments for our programs.  We've incorporated all facility, material, and hospitality contributions into our therapeutic recreation support programs, as well as our special events and fundraisers.  Through trial and error, we have concluded that our experienced and dedicated volunteers, rather than paid employees, bring a special compassionate effort into our services that could not be matched!  Our passive fundraising history has led to a greater need for more cost effective programing so that we may continue our FREE membership and services!  But we wouldn't have it any other way!  It is not our policy to aggressively solicit funds!  We are sure that our mission will pay for itself by remaining efficient, effective, and purposeful!  When there's a will, there's a way....   and our journey is our goal!

We even have our bi-annual newsletters available to view from past years for historical purposes!  Also view our website from years past right here....  Enjoy!

 

 

 

Thank you to Carolyn Sparano of Real Living Real Estate in Scarsdale for keeping Fun For Cure, Inc. on the forefront of her weekly newsletter.  Carolyn has been a compassionate and generous contributor to our organization and to the community she serves!  She has been an associate of Fun For Cure, Inc. since 2010 and we hope to continue our business and personal relationships!

AN INSPIRATION...


My son, Kyle, after being discharged from the hospital.... making the best of his reverse isolation mask! After a long battle with Crohn's, he unfortunately had to suffer with Methotrexate toxicity after being administered 14 times the normal dose for two weeks in error! His immune system went down to zero and his mouth developed ulcers so bad that he had no normal lining left in his mouth, throat, cheeks, lips, and tongue. His pain was unbearable and the ER said he had the most horrific case of mucositis that they have ever seen. He is still at risk for long term toxicity effects and and liver damage!!!  For two weeks he suffered excruciating pain and debilitation while following his prescription! Fun For Cure, Inc. is going to add a new program and trust to our services. We will be fighting against these deadly mistakes that are so easily communicated to patients who are used to high amounts of daily medication! Stay tuned for more updates!!!
