Foundation

MISSION

To unite the design and furnishings industry in the battle against breast cancer. We support those individuals who are fighting breast cancer by offering financial assistance through confidential Helping Hand Grants to assist in areas where additional financial aid is needed.

VISION

To educate and assist persons affected by breast cancer within the design and furnishings industry. We offer financial assistance to maintain as normal a lifestyle as possible for individuals confronting this disease.

 

HISTORY

The Common Thread For The Cure Foundation 501 (c) (3) was founded in 2000 by Suzann Burkhead-Bray and Scott Burkhead in memory of their sister, Sandra Burkhead Campbell, who lost her long term battle with breast cancer in February 1999.
