what we do

Our Mission

To support patients, enable treatment centers, and empower advocates to fight for accessible and equitable healthcare

Limitless Foundation seeks to create a community of advocates, cancer patients, healthcare providers, caretakers, and community members by providing a space for advocacy, solidarity, and charity.

Limitless provides handmade items to hospitals/clinics/treatment centers and mentors individuals through civic engagement training. We seek to empower organizations and treatment centers that make healthcare accessible.

Our Story

My freshman year of high school, my uncle's relapse into stage four cancer was a defining diagnosis for my family. It meant watching my uncle go through intensive rounds of chemotherapy and staying at the hospital late for hours on end waiting to translate diagnoses and for results. I live in a close-knit family, and my uncles are like second fathers to me, making the diagnosis even more difficult to take in. During our many conversations at the hospital, as I balanced schoolwork with caretaking, my uncle instilled this idea of "limitless" inside me. He always encouraged me to pursue goals that I believed were impossible, whether that was national qualifications in speech and debate, becoming a valedictorian, or applying for different programs. He encouraged me to go as far as I could.

When he passed away my junior year of high school, my world was completely shattered. Grief makes living hard. It makes getting out of bed difficult, wanting to pursue your goals difficult, and hard not to remain fixated on the loss you're experiencing. Throughout my struggles with grief though, I have continued to hold my uncle's words close to my heart which is where this organization gets its name. I've had to achieve a lot of the goals my uncle help me set, knowing he wouldn't be with me when they happened. I knew when I gave my high school graduation speech that when I looked into the arena he wouldn't be waving back, that on move on day he wouldn't be in line for convocation, or at my family's party when I committed to Washington University in St. Louis. But I've converted that sense of loss into action, a desire to help other families experiencing similar situations. I want to support Oklahoma patients, hospitals, and community partners in this difficult time for them.

Limitless is composed of students from across the nation. While our current efforts are aimed at Oklahoma healthcare, we hope to expand this network to many more states in the future.
