A Charitable Wedding

“Happiness doesn't result from what we get, but from what we give.”― Ben Carson

On May 24th, 2015, CCBF supporters Amanda and Jake were married in the British Virgin Islands. To celebrate their marriage, the couple asked attendees to donate to charities close to their hearts in lieu of traditional wedding gifts. CCBF wants to personally thank Amanda and Jake for choosing to support CCBF. We also would like to thank the couple’s family and friends for honoring their wishes and helping us to advance our mission.

We want to encourage anyone who is planning their special day, whether it be as big as a wedding or as small as a birthday, to consider donations in lieu of traditional gifts. Donations help ensure that CCBF can continue to uphold a standard of excellence in the treatment of children with cancer and blood disorders at the Division of Pediatric Hematology and Oncology at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical Center.
