Stories of Hope
"The assistance from Helen David Relief Fund helped me with hospital bills, medications, food and juice deliveries, house cleaning, and most importantly financial aide to my caretaker during a year long chemotherapy and 5 weeks of radiation so he could be home. It would not have been possible for me to get assistance from anyone else, nor would it have been possible for my caretaker to take that time off work without your help. He never missed a single doctors appointment, and we will forever be working on ways to thank you all."

The Helen David Relief Fund (HDRF) at the USBG National Charity Foundation honors the memory of the beloved Port Huron, MI bar owner and community leader who was a 2-time breast cancer survivor Helen David stands as an inspiration to those living with the disease. Her cousin, Tony Abou-Ganim founded the HDRF in her name to assist qualified members of the hospitality industry who are taking on cancer, and specifically breast cancer, with the dignity and courage Helen displayed throughout her battle.
Our goal is to assist as many qualified industry members as possible each year. We are striving to ensure that the HDRF is sustained as a fund that those battling cancer can rely upon in their time of need.
