The Association’s programs are funded almost entirely by individual private contributors. MDA seeks no government grants, United Way funding or fees from those it serves.
Their Mission: MDA works in your community to combat neuromuscular diseases through (1) basic and applied scientific investigation, (2) local comprehensive programs of medical services and clinical care, and (3) widespread professional and public health education.
Baylor Health Care System
In 2010, we lost our dear friend and Partner Cindy Ornish after a long and courageous battle with breast cancer. Cindy was a 19 year veteran of KBIC, and inspired all of us with her strength and determination. Cindy’s last wish was for the Kaye/Bassman Foundation to allocate funds to the Baylor Cancer Program. We are thrilled that through the generosity of our supporters, we were able to name an exam room in Cindy’s honor at the Innovative Clinical Trials Center at Baylor Charles A Sammons Cancer Center.
Two of our own family members, Tracy Kaye and Renee Denton, were both diagnosed with breast cancer in recent years, and the team at Baylor have been alongside them every step of the way for their successful fight. The physicians and staff at Baylor have given so much to Kaye/Bassman over the years, and it is our privilege to give back to them in return.
