Established in 2014, the mission of this foundation is to help educate participants in individualized targeted therapy practices, this, in turn, will help eradicate certain terminal disease states. Currently, under the Right to Try Act, forty-one states have adopted legislation to help give terminal individuals a fighting chance for a better healthier life.

As nutrition has proven to be the backbone in helping the rejuvenating process in the human body, emphasis must also be given to education. As a society we learn from historical, current research and methodologies then tend to rewrite some of those pathways to help navigate the future. Evaluating each individual and their present health status helps us take the path of least resistance. Publishing such research is instrumental in defining and stimulating the healing process in every human being.

Focused on natural remedies, which help stimulate the healing process, some chronic illnesses are not only financially costly but most often lead to the personal inability for self-sustainability.  Through corporate and private donations we allocate funding for research which helps transform individualized participant care.

Common Misconception "I Can't"

With the help of our foundation we empower the words "I Can".  Through the use of peer-reviewed research and the funding of appropriate services, the Foundation will target its initiatives and empower individuals to become productive and creative members of their communities.

"Current evidence collectively demonstrates that fruit and vegetable intake is associated with improved health, reduced risk of major diseases and possibly delayed the onset of age-related factors."

World Cancer Research Fund and the American Institute for Cancer Research

“Evidence of dietary protection against cancer is strongest and most consistent for diets high in vegetables and fruits.”

Food and Drug Administration

"Diets rich in fruits and vegetables may reduce the risk of some types of cancer and other chronic diseases."

United States Department of Agriculture

"While Phytonutrients aren’t “essential” by traditional definition, they apparently reduce the risks of diseases and aging."

United States Department of Agriculture

"Now there's a new surge of discovery around health-enhancing compounds in plant foods known as phytonutrients."

International Food Information Council

"Plant food such as fruits and vegetables and whole grains contain many components that are beneficial to human health. Research supports that some of these foods as part of an overall healthful diet have the potential to delay the onset of many age-related diseases."

International Food Information Council

"A recent review of current literature suggests that fruits and vegetables in combination have synergistic effects on antioxidants activities leading to a greater reduction in risk of chronic diseases specifically for cancer and heart disease."

International Food Information Council

"Most research indicated that there are overall health benefits from antioxidant-rich foods in the diet.  Reinforced by current research, the message remains that antioxidants obtained from food sources, including fruits, vegetables, and whole grains, are potentially active in disease risk reduction and can be beneficial to human health."

International Food Information Council

"Antioxidants by their very nature are capable of stabilizing free radicals before they can react and cause harm, in much the same way that a buffer stabilizes an acid to maintain a normal pH. because oxidation is a naturally occurring process within the body, a balance with antioxidants must exist to maintain health."

International Food Information Council

"An increasing body of evidence suggests beneficial effects of the antioxidants presents in grapes, cocoa, blueberries, and teas on cardiovascular health Alzheimer’s disease and even reduction of the risks of some cancers."
