In 2015, Harvard graduate and Founder of Thank God It’s Natural (), Chris-Tia Donaldson was diagnosed with breast cancer at the young age of 36. During her treatment, she learned that having money could make the difference between living and dying when it came to treating this condition. In her observation, very few organizations existed that provided support and social services to help women with transportation, childcare, or seeking disability leave from their place of employment.
Today, Aris Singleton, CEO, continues Chris-Tia’s legacy with the Foundation, by advocating for women experiencing financial difficulties, who are undergoing treatment, to highlight health disparities due to race and socio-economic factors, and to empower women to listen to their bodies.
The Foundation facilitates a number of initiatives that lead back to our mission, such as our Annual Cocktails for the Cure event.
On October 28, 2023, the 6th Annual Cocktails for the Cure event will culminate year-long fundraising efforts to support the Foundation’s mission.
