What We Believe

We at the National Cheers Foundation believe in "Celebrating Life through
Life's Celebrations." It is our mission to empower women to live life with vitality, free from the five primary health threats which are heart disease, mental illness, cancer, osteoporosis and auto immune diseases. We intend to raise funds in support of organizations that endeavor to help women improve their lives through care, health, education, empowerment, research and support.

What We Do

The National Cheers Foundation was established in the summer of 2012 by
a group of caring professionals and community leaders in La Jolla, California. Facilitated by our annual gala and "joie de vivre" grant program, the foundation raises funds to support medical research and health institutions, health advocacy groups and outreach programs, and has developed a resource and educational program that offers to women the ability to empower themselves.
