We want to teach future generations of Kehoes the importance of “giving back” and learning this idea early in life. We are looking for organizations where we can have a significant impact by donating both our time and our money. – Kevin R. Kehoe, Founder of the Kehoe Family Foundation
SCOTTSDALE, AZ (PRWEB)
August 02, 2022
Aspire Software Founder, Author (“One Hit Wonder”) and Stage 4 Cancer Survivor Kevin R. Kehoe officially announces the launch of the Kehoe Family Foundation website (https://kehoefamilyfoundation.org) and support for charities from coast to coast, including efforts to increase patient access to cutting-edge cancer treatments at Mayo Clinic in Arizona.
Founder and philanthropist Kevin R. Kehoe was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer shortly after founding Aspire Software in 2014. Kevin received a three-year survival prognosis of 30% and is grateful to the team from the Mayo Clinic in Phoenix, Arizona, and its senior oncologist, Dr. Tara Seery in Laguna Beach, California, for her support and care over the past eight years. While building Aspire Software into a scalable company, Kevin survived seven surgeries, five rounds of radiation therapy, and months and months of chemo. When he asked Dr Seery why she thought he was still alive when others diagnosed with him had died, she replied: ‘You’re lucky. Your Cancer is probably what we call a “good actor”…that’s my best assessment. »
After the company was fully acquired from Kevin R. Kehoe in 2021, he wrote a book “One Hit Wonder” to help fellow entrepreneurs and others achieve success in pursuing their dreams. Additionally, Kevin and his family members established a philanthropic foundation in 2021 with the idea that future generations of Kehoes would be involved in donating to causes aligned with family values.
As the grandson of Irish immigrants and eldest of six children, the mission of Kevin’s new foundation is to: “Engage future generations of Kehoe family members to be actively involved in responsible giving to organizations that support the founder’s values and causes.” Kevin explained, “We want to teach future generations of Kehoes the importance of ‘giving back’ and learning that idea early in life. We are looking for organizations where we can have a significant impact by donating both our time and our money. »
Core members of the Kehoe Family Foundation include the two founders Kevin and his wife Lorraine Kehoe, as well as Julia M. Kehoe (Kevin’s daughter), Michael Kehoe (Kevin’s brother), Deirdre Chanis (Kevin’s sister and his two boys – Kevin’s nephews), and Matt Kehoe (Kevin’s nephew).
As a stage 4 cancer survivor, Kevin was keen to support community awareness and engagement through the Mayo Clinic Comprehensive Cancer Center in Arizona. This includes efforts to increase clinical trial access to breakthrough cancer therapies and the establishment of a patient navigation program that reduces barriers for patients and their families to improve their care and overall experience. .
Kevin added, “We are pleased to announce that the new Kehoe Family Fund for Cancer Awareness and Community Engagement has been established at Mayo Clinic in Arizona and honors Tanios Bekaii-Saab, MD, a physician who works with patients requiring specialized cancer care. ”
In addition to the Mayo Clinic, current Kehoe Family Foundation grantees include Hillsdale College, SUNY Stony Brook Athletics, From tunnel to towers, Turning United States and the National Association of Landscape Contractors.
In his book on leadership,An amazing shot,” Kevin R. Kehoe shares his inspirational life and business lessons to help readers succeed in an entertaining storytelling format. Kevin points out: “It can take years to reach a decisive moment of success. For many “One Hit Wonders”, like musicians, success does not define their life or their legacy. The true story of a one-hit wonder is the focus on a lifetime’s work, as well as the chance to have a mega-hit that will always be special and memorable.
Or as Kehoe puts it; “We all dream of being ‘Superman.’ between us, in all its banality, can change the world.
And with millions of students heading back to school in August, Kevin R. Kehoe encourages them to learn more about donating their time and money to organizations that support their values and how they want to give back. the better world.
