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!!!
As a private practice pediatrician, I would like to personally thank Barb and Steve Young for their continued healing influence on my patient's lives.
By utilizing the Forever Young Zone and soon to be completed Sophie's Place, the Forever Young Foundation has helped advance our hospital's goal to implement complimentary and integrative modalities of medical care to heal the mind, body and spirit of each of our sickest children.
The Foundation's unwavering commitment to contribute to my patient's care has allowed us all to learn from their recovery.
The Youngs say "Be Your Own Hero"!!!!
The Currans say "Music IS Therapy"!!!!!!
Children simply say "Thank You"!!!!!!!!!!!

Forever Young Foundation stands out in its mission, its staff, and the community they have created. The true reach of their impact may never be fully known, but any FYF donor can tell you what a fulfilling experience it is to be part of Forever Young. Of special note for me, is their commitment to expanding the capacity and expertise of the nonprofits they support through the Forever Young Institute. This game-changing approach is indicative of the manner in which they go about doing good and in the process, elevate the entire nonprofit sector.
I've been fortunate to work with the Forever Young Foundation on the Sophie's Place in Sacramento and have admired their support, consistency, follow through, and willingness to help. The team at FYF is available when needed, has the experience and expertise to plan and execute spectacular events with high profile celebrities, and relationships with a wide variety of professionals that enable their mission of enriching and healing the lives of children.
This is one incredible organization, doing such impactful work! Sutter Children's Center is so thrilled to have partnered with the Forever Young Foundation to build our brand new Sophie's Place! Seeing how FYF has found such a beautiful way to create a lasting legacy for Sophie Barton, using her love of music to bring healing to children and families in hospitals, is truly inspiring. FYF's strong support of music therapy is helping to bring awareness to this very important field, and we are so grateful.
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.
I am a senior director at 1736 Family Crisis Center and have had the pleasure of working hand in hand with The Forever Young Foundation for several years because they are helping us out an 8 to 80 Zone in our newest youth shelter for homeless youth. The staff at TFTF are deeply committed to helping youth. Every time we have needed their support they have instantly been there to help us create a space for another 8 to 80 Zone. Every interaction with staff has been pleasant, educational and shown their deep commitment towards helping youth.
I have worked with the Forever Young Foundation as a photographer for the past 6 months and have witnessed firsthand their incredible love and spirit for all they serve. At each event, they make sure each individual is treated with the most love and respect possible, and strive DAILY to grow the support for children in need. MAGICAL people working for a MAGICAL foundation.
The Forever Young Foundation is one of the most passionately committed organizations I have encountered. The management staff is responsive and accountable and cares deeply about maximizing donor dollars. They truly care about outcomes and how their efforts affect other's lives in a positive way. This organization deserves even more credit than they receive.
I cannot say enough about the Forever Young Foundation. The compassion, outreach and drive that this foundation has for making a different in the lives of the individuals they work with is breath taking. If they say they are going to do something, it happens. They have changed the lives of so many individuals and families and these changes reach far into the communities. Incredible visionaries who never seem to stop working!! Thank you for all you do.
