Founded in 2007
The One Step Closer Foundation
The 1SCF, through multiple fundraising efforts, supports existing groups, individuals, and research for those already coping with cerebral palsy (CP) and other disabilities. The 1SCF strives to promote awareness and understanding of the disease through educational programs, support groups and access to previously unknown research. The 1SCF will also direct funds to researchers seeking for medical advancements in treating and diagnosing CP.
The 1SCF will accomplish its mission by focusing on three principle areas:
To help promote a national awareness, recognition and acceptance of persons with cerebral palsy
To financially assist those who have or are taking care of individuals that have been medically diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy, and are financially unable to handle all of the considerable costs associated with this disease. On a case by case basis, 1SCF will offer financial support to those in need of medical equipment, therapy, rehabilitation and or other costs related to CP.
