What is the Avery Foundation?

The Avery Foundation is a nonprofit organization founded in 2017, dedicated to providing critical financial assistance to cancer patients and their families. Their aim is to alleviate the financial burdens that often accompany cancer treatments for individuals and their families. Established in memory of James and Julie Avery, who bravely fought their own battles against cancer, the Foundation's core mission is to offer grants that cover unexpected expenses related to treatment, such as travel, meals, and lodging.

James Avery, diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer in 2014, and Julie Avery, who battled fibrosis sarcoma in 1981, inspire the Foundation's commitment to preserving their memory by helping others facing similar challenges.
