The Aitch Foundation is dedicated to changing lives through the advancement of cancer research, while generating community involvement through sports and fashion related events.
Founded on January 24, 2011 through the vision and guidance of Dr. Jim Potchen and others at Michigan State University Health Teams, “The Aitch Foundation” was established in order to raise money and awareness for early cancer detection.
As someone, who like many, has been touched by cancer it is my desire to replace this fear of this disease with hope, confidence, and strength. In order to achieve such aspirations, I understand that it will take the commitment and support of many, and want to reach out to those that share this dream.
The Aitch Foundation's Hidden Cancers Fund was set up through Michigan State University Health Teams to begin research on detecting occult (hidden) cancers throughout the human body.
Along with the Hidden Cancers Fund, the Aitch Foundation will feature the 45 Reasons Mentoring Program in memory of the late Matthew Alexander Aitch Jr. The program will aim to help and mentor less fortunate children as well as children that deal with the daily challenges of just being a kid (i.e. depression, feeling alone, school work, guidance, etc.) and encourage the overall empowerment of themselves - our next generation.
