CRFJB is supporting the research of Dr. Carolyn Foster. Dr. Foster is dedicated to designing better telecare solutions for children who require home breathing machines due to severe lung problems often resulting from premature birth. The impact of COVID-19 has highlighted the growing importance of telemedicine and the ability to remotely monitor patients in a secure and coordinated way.

The goal of our virtual campaign is to educate the community and raise much needed capital to bring Dr. Foster's research to life. Check out our "About the Research" page to learn more about Dr. Foster's critical work.

While the CRFJB's overall fundraising mission is to raise $200,000 to support Dr. Foster, we strive to raise $25,000 as we kick off our 2021 Virtual Campaign. We hope to celebrate together soon through the in-person events we typically host, like Cocktails for a Cause and our Spring Fashion Show. In the meantime, we count on your continued support in an effort to stay connected and make a difference during this trying time. We thank you for your support and hope you continue to learn more about the wonderful, innovative work that Dr. Foster is leading! Let's all stay strong #AtHome4Kids together!
