I was moved to tears when I found out about TFF. It was everything I had been looking for. I didn't want to raise money for anything unless I could impact people directly. There are a lot of great fundraisers out there going towards research but having had to deal with cancer directly in my life, I didn't see anything that was helping the utter damage that gets done to people financially.
The fact that 100% of anything I donate, or anything I raise goes to the people, that TFF has matched many a donation is beyond incredible. I also love that the Foundation helps local families in crisis.
I do anything I can to raise money for TFF. It might not be as much as I want but if I raise money anywhere, it's always for them.
Thank you for existing TFF!
I have been a volunteer with many organizations and I have to say that the Talbert Family Foundation is truly incredible. There is so much love and passion that is put into everything it touches. From fundraising in fun and creative ways to finding wonderful families and people to help. I feel lucky to be a part of an organization that does so much to help and lend a hand in a difficult time. Not to mention the wonderful other volunteers I have met through the Tablert Family foundation.
The Talbert Family Foundation is a most remarkable resource that makes a meaningful difference in the lives of those being served. We know firsthand. Our daughter Isabella spent 8 months in the hospital receiving chemotherapy for AML leukemia she was diagnosed with in August 2009. She's in remission now and doing extremely well. She recently became a "TFF Kid" and Julie Talbert and the foundation are helping us meet the related financial challenges having been in the hospital on shifts 24/7 for those 8 months. Julie demonstrates a deep compassion and respectful appreciation for both the inner and outer territory that families must navigate given the associated health and financial challenges that lead families like ours to reach out for assistance. We are eternally grateful to the Talbert Family Foundation for assisting us in bridging forward and doing so with such graciousness. Thank You! http://www.talbertfamilyfoundation.org/pages/Isabella.html

I have been volunteering for the Talbert Family Foundation for approx. the last 12 months. In that time, I have worked directly with the Executive Director, Julie Talbert. She has been an absolute DELIGHT over the course of the projects that I have taken on. I absolutely LOVE that 100% of all funds received goes directly to the recipient/family in need. I also love that the Foundation helps LOCAL families in crisis. Specifically, I have helped raise money for 4 young children struggling to fight cancer via: Team Cecilia, Team Matthew, Team Elijah, Team Isabella. I also helped organize and execute a holiday toy drive for a local single mother of 3 with terminal cancer. All in all, the Talbert Family Foundation is a WONDERFUL, DEDICATED, HARDWORKING, COMPASSIONATE, GENEROUS local resource!!! I can't say enough positive things :-) I'm just so impossibly grateful for have discovered a foundation like this to focus my extra time, love, and energy on.
