About the Campaign.

CROWDFUNDING - Hi UFunders! Welcome to our page! We are the LisaMom Foundation, a nonprofit started in 1999 but is currently being revived by the University of Nebraska-Lincoln SIFE/Enactus team. LisaMom was started in Omaha, Nebraska when Lisa Braddock was diagnosed with cancer. She had three little kids and a husband. Connie Davison, her nurse and friend, stepped in to help the family during the difficult time of Lisa fighting cancer. Sadly, Lisa passed away in 1999. Connie continued to help the family transition after her death by taking the kids to school, helping with food, and anything that Lisa's husband needed. Connie wanted to continue to help other families in the same situation, so she created the LisaMom Foundation.

The Foundation went dormant, but when Marisa, Lisa's daughter, joined the SIFE team, there was a vision to revive the foundation to begin to help families again. Many students have been impacted by having a loved one battle or pass away from cancer- many having mother's pass away from cancer. The team has been working diligently to fundraise, advertise, and brand LisaMom. LisaMom Foundation is now a 501(c)3 that enables mother's battling cancer to have in-home child care through the service of a nanny, gas allowance, meals twice a week, and cleaning. LisaMom recruits, matches the families' needs to a nanny, and trains the nanny. Due to the very limited funds of the LisaMom Foundation, the families are responsible for paying for the nanny about $10 an hour. Our organization's goal is to create jobs for those wanting to do nanny work and provide a needed service for these families.

This is where we need your help! LisaMom wants to be able to provide this valuable service and support of having a nanny. We want to be able to provide financial assistance for any family that needs LisaMom's services but may not be able to afford to pay for a nanny. All money raised will go directly to these families impacted by either having a mother battle cancer or pass away from cancer. LisaMom helps bring the family back together again.

We are a group of college students from varying backgrounds with the common passion for helping those with cancer. Most of us have been through the struggle and know the pain of losing a loved one. We wish LisaMom was there for us when we were struggling. Our ultimate goal is to serve those in need through an entrepreneurial approach. We believe LisaMom solves a big need and creates jobs for the unemployed at the same time.

Everyone has been impacted by cancer. Please help LisaMom support these families and provide them services that show them that they are not alone in this battle.
