Wendy Walk/ Liddy Shriver Sarcoma Initiative
Liposarcoma is a malignant soft tumor (cancer that originates in soft connective tissues of the body) that develops in fat tissue. The exact cause of soft tissue sarcomas is not entirely understood, however, studies have indicated that genetic alterations may play a role. To date, the disease can be treated, but not cured. Because of the rarity of this cancer, the cure depends solely on new research. Sarcoma researchers must rely primarily on private funding, because government funds are used for more well-know cancers. This organization is particularly special to us because we have associates whose family members are currently fighting Liposarcoma. http://sarcomahelp.org/
Plasencia Math & Science Magnet Center
Hearts of Montage is committed to donating discarded linens, towels, sheets and duvets covers to the Plasencia Math & Science Magnet Center, which uses these items for various reasons in classrooms.
Los Angeles AIDS Walk
The Hearts of Montage team of associates participates in this walk to raise money for AIDS Project Los Angeles (APLA) an AIDS service organization dedicated to: improving the lives of people affected by HIV disease; reducing the incidence of HIV infection; and advocating for fair and effective HIV–related public policy. AIDS Walk Los Angeles makes it possible for APLA to provide urgently needed food, dental care, safe housing, and much more to people with HIV/AIDS who also face poverty, hunger, and homelessness. APLA also runs the county’s largest network of HIV prevention programs to end the epidemic in Los Angeles. http://www.aidswalk.net/losangeles/
