The Steven M. Perez Foundation was founded to commemorate the life and lifestyle of Steven Perez. Steven impressed his energy and enthusiasm on all that knew him. He was a special person who lived life to the fullest and especially enjoyed being with his friends and family. On August 4, 2003 Steven lost his 49-day battle with leukemia but his spirit continues to live in all the lives he touched in his brief 29 years.

The goal of the Steven M. Perez Foundation will be to help people who have been directly or indirectly affected by leukemia and other related cancers. Funds raised in his name will continue to be invested to help ensure fewer patients and their families are affected by these devastating diseases. The foundation primarily invests in a broad array of charitable activities associated with leukemia or related cancers. As we continue to raise funds to help fight these devastating diseases, we look for new ways to promote awareness to patients and their families about how the Steven M. Perez Foundation can improve their lives and uplift their spirits.

The Foundation has established The Steven M. Perez Scholarship Fund to assist college bound high school seniors who have survived leukemia or who have lost their parents or sibling to these devastating diseases. The Foundation has also partnered with Camp Sunshine, Camp Sunrise and Camp Ronald McDonald all camps that supports children with life threatening illnesses and their families, and is especially pleased to provide opportunities for young cancer patients to enjoy camp. The Foundation continues to identify other worthwhile projects such as Sunrise on Wheels which is a program that brings joy to patients while in the hospital, partnering with Grahamtastic to bring laptops and iPads to patients in the hospital so they can still connect with their schoolmates and remains focused on providing direct financial support to families who are struggling to manage these terrible diseases. In the future, we will further our goals to extend to other worthwhile projects and will be dependent on donor support to fulfill his dreams and our wish to pay tribute to his memory.

The Foundation was started in September 2003 and has been granted 501(c)3 status by the Office of the Attorney General. We have hosted a variety of events each year since 2003 and hope to continue to promote awareness about the foundation and the assistance we are providing. The foundation will continue to create opportunities for our supporters to be together and is grateful for your support.
