I know first hand how awesome FYF is! In 2007 I was blessed with two beautiful twin boys born with a horrific disease known as EB. I was at the end of my rope and losing hope that I would be able to get my babies to the best physicians for their condition. Then along came FYF. They are my living angels. Some how, some way, they found out about my situation and got us out of NJ and to California to Stanford University. Although no miracle was found, I was able to get the piece of mind knowing that I did everything possible to save them. My two short months with Kyle and Zack are so precious to me. I cannot find the words, nor do I think there is any, to express my sincere gratitude to Steve Young and his amazing team and angels (Michele to this day keeps in touch with us which means so much to me)!!! During our visit to California, Steve Young let us stay in his home, supplied us with experienced help to educate us on how to care for my sons. Knowing how stressed we were, he even gave my husband and I a few hours to go out on a date, something we had not done in a very long time. I thank God everynight for bringing them to me!!!

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I wish they were closer so I could hug them daily!!!!

I've helped with Forever Young Foundation events for about 15 years now. I am blown away by the profound impact it brings to so many children & veterans in need. As an Olympic medalist, I'm asked to do a number of charitable events and the Forever Young events is easily one of the most rewarding I do. I'm so fortunate to be connected with a charity that puts so many smiles on faces that have lost so much!!

Give a child an instrument, and he will play.
Give a child a ball, and she will play.
Give a child a smile and a hand, and he will do the same.
The Forever Young Foundation, cleverly and with thought, seeks out needs and fills them creatively and with care, both in the US and abroad.
Clarity of mission, generosity of time and talent and finances, compassionate and considerate execution, all these these are evident in abundance in the Forever Young scope of endeavor. Most telling, however, is the absolute, unadulterated joy one sees in the faces of the children singing and making music in Sophie's Place's (healing through music found in selected Western US hospitals), or in the smiles and laughter of otherwise under served kids and families experiencing the ski slopes in Utah (winter mountain fun with snow sports and concerts) , and the open and engaged expressions of those who've tasked themselves to help. Nothing, not one thing, says more to me than the pure delight of those being served, and those doing the serving. Forever Young and the talented staff behind the scenes doing the heavy lifting allow the rest of us to meet where the need is, particularly when there are children involved, and continue along that path, together.

I have enjoyed working along side of the Forever Young Foundation. Their amazing continued efforts in the communities they have served are inspiring to everyone who has had the pleasure of working with them. Their dedication to evolving and staying current with partnering charitable needs is admirable and I am excited to watch the foundation grow especially with their newest initiative Sophie's Place. Sophie's Place is life changing for so many children and a blessing to so many hurting families. I feel honored to have gotten the privilege to know those a part of the Forever Young Foundation and wish them great success in their future endeavors.

I have been able to work with the staff of Forever Young Foundation, and have been continually impressed time after time. Not only with their kindness, but how they operate Forever Young. Having spent the past 2 years actively growing a foundation with a small staff, I know what to look for within an organization. Forever Young has a strong moral compass that is obvious to those that dive into the interworking of their organization.

My wife and I have worked with the Forever Young Foundation for nearly 10 years now and the amount of effort and dedication that Barb & Steve, along with the FYF Team puts into helping these children is simply amazing! We are proud to be a part of the FYF family and encourage others to be a part of it as well.

Over the years, Forever Young Foundation has become our go-to charity in terms of helping make a meaningful difference in the lives of children around the world. Steve, Barb, Sterling, Michelle and the rest of the FYF team do an absolutely superb job of helping children with physical and mental disabilities, as well as educational needs, through the FYF Family of Charities, which offers depth and breadth of service to families and children with unique needs. I cannot think of a charitable organization that is more deserving of our collective support, so I encourage you to support FYF by giving generously.
