For the Littles, the challenge fund was an opportunity to maximize their charitable gift and do the most good for those indirectly affected by breast cancer — the children of patients. Support from the fund will provide clothing, school supplies, childcare, continuation of orthodontic treatment, funding for activities and other basic needs.
“Jewell and I both have had family members and friends affected by breast cancer and realize the hardships it can place on families with children while parents undergo treatments,” said Danny Little. “We plan to continue supporting the fund through Show Me Wagyu and hope others will as well.”
The Show Me Wagyu Charities Breast Cancer Foundation Children’s Fund is a component of the Barton County Community Foundation, one of the CFO’s 51 regional affiliate foundations. Assistance from the fund will benefit children across BCFO’s service area.
“The timing of this gift couldn’t be better,” said Joe Daues, CEO of the Breast Cancer Foundation of the Ozarks. “So many women delayed getting a mammogram because of COVID in 2020 and we fear the need for assistance will be even greater next year.”
