Raise the Realm Update

We would like to thank everyone that contributed to our annual Raise the Realm fundraising campaign​ (keep an eye on your mailbox!!)​. This year's theme was #LoveInspires, and we received so much wonderful and positive feedback on how RoC has inspired you!! THANK YOU!! We want to say YOU are what inspires us day in and day out.

This year we had an anonymous donor offer to match EVERY donation, up to the $10,000 goal. We fell short of the goal, ending at $3,635 but with the donor generously contributing to match the amount, that raises our total to $7,270!! This allows Realm of Caring to continue to write monthly checks on behalf of the Realm Cares™ financial assistance program. We thank you and our Realm Cares™ recipients thank you!

Local Nonprofit Represents at the Oscars

Realm of Caring Foundation Participates in Oscar Event at Hollywood Legion Hall

A nonprofit based out of Colorado Springs is making their list and checking it twice. After all, it’s not every day that a Colorado nonprofit is offered a table backstage at an Oscars event. But that is exactly what happened for Heather Jackson, Chief Executive Officer of Realm of Caring Foundation and her team. “Corina of Corsus Body Care is the aunt of one of our clients. She wanted to make sure that celebrities at this event found out what Realm of Caring is doing. She asked if we would make a card to hand out at her table at the event, and then she said ‘I think I can get you a table, would you guys like that?’ We were all so shocked and excited!” said Jackson.

Albuquerque baby makes history with cannabis oil at Colorado hospital

RoC loves to share success stories, and Amylea's is one for the Colorado History books. When Nicole Nunez arrived at the Realm of Caring office, she was no stranger. She has already spoken to several staff members on the phone, and touched several hearts. Team member Kathy spoke in person with Nicole Nunez.

"I was so impressed by the information Nicole (Amylea's mom) already had, about her options and medical cannabis. She had just arrived to Denver that day after being air-lifted with Amylea, she drove straight here (to the RoC Office). Having been through this with our son at the same age, I was truly inspired by her courage and love for her newborn daughter," said Kathy.

KRQE reports:

“I sat for a good three weeks fighting with the doctors and trying to talk them into giving me the okay,” Nicole said. “I’ve been working with the case study team and the neurology team here at children’s and I’m hopeful this will work.”

Today, the hospital gave that “okay” the family has been waiting for.

“For us to get the approval for us to administer it while she in the NICU while she’s a patient…it’s kind alike a miracle,” Nicole said. “Because they were completely against it saying, ‘No you can’t do it, you have to wait until she’s an out-patient.”

Although doctors gave the okay, they are not allowed to administer the oil. The family has to give the doses to Amylea. The family said nurses already noticed a difference in her being more alert than usual, and she’s only had two doses.

"I remember we were both crying on the phone, just so devastated. After seeing the follow up, our tears paid off," said RoC Care Team member Jasmin.
