The Foundation

A Letter from Jennifer

I experienced the beauty of new motherhood right around the same time as my sister, Lynda. For both of us, the importance of bringing a greater sense of security and well-being to under-served and under-privileged communities truly hit home during that time. We both feel the desire, as never before, to help create a healthier, happier environment for others.

We grew up in a neighborhood that was not privileged, with an awareness of what many must go without. The number of children that grow up without access to quality health care, doctors, and health care facilities, is unacceptable. Also unacceptable is the small number of parents who have access to be adequately and completely informed about critical child- and health-care topics.

That’s why Lynda and I are working to create the Lopez Family Foundation. Our goal is to dramatically increase the availability of quality health care and health education for women and children, regardless of their ability to pay.

Our organization will focus on the health and well-being of women and children, adopting a strategy that will achieve maximum impact in the area of children's health worldwide, through our commitment to telemedicine. Telemedicine is a remarkable new healthcare delivery system that uses telecommunications technology to remotely treat patients.
The world can be a wonderful place, brimming with opportunity. But for far too many, it is still filled with daunting challenges and limited chances for a better life. Please join us as we work to change that picture for the better. Your participation will help us to do more, and to do it more quickly. Please take a few minutes to read through this website and see how you might become involved. Where children are concerned, there is no time to lose.
