The LucStrong Foundation is a 501 (c) (3) nonprofit providing grants to families with children (between the ages of 1 and 17) who are diagnosed with sickle cell disease and either undergoing a Bone Marrow Transplant (BMT), a Stem Cell Transplant (SCT), or hospitalized due to a sickle cell crisis. The goal of the LucStrong Foundation is to help alleviate some of the financial burdens of families who have a child in the transplant process. Many families who enter the bone marrow transplant process find themselves in great emotional and financial strain and as a result are unable to meet some of their basic living expenses. The LucStrong Foundation offers grants, parking vouchers and gift cards to assist eligible families in meeting the financial challenges they are faced with. Established in 2017, The LucStrong Foundation operates out of Ventura County, CA.
The LucStrong Foundation was founded by Stacy & Matthew Bodden. The Bodden’s experience of having a child with SCD in the transplant process and the associated financial challenges it effectuates compelled them to help those in need. The passion to help families in similar situations now drives the Bodden’s to utilize their networks in the Ventura and Los Angeles County communities to bring about visibility and donations to the organization. The LucStrong Foundation relies on individual donations and other fundraising efforts to support the organization's endeavors.
