What is Ducks for Bucks?

Ducks for Bucks is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that was created in memory of Breann Chavez who passed away at the age of three from Niemann-Pick Disease, type C (NPD-C).  All money raised goes directly into the hands of families caring for children with NP-C, so they can personally apply it towards their greatest need at the time.

Our goal is to raise money for families who are still in the fight against this terrible disease.  Families faced with NP-C are looking at a very short amount of time with their child.  We would like to help them alleviate some of their financial burden so they can focus on enjoying the few years they have with their child.

Over the past few year Ducks for Bucks has had the privilege of helping these families with equipment needs, medical bills, and sadly, even funeral expenses. We also help provide travel expenses, allowing families to get to the Annual Niemann-Pick Disease Family Conference.  Here, families can network with other families and share ideas for caring for their terminally ill children.  With all the different complications associated with this disease, and because of the lack of experience most doctos have with this rare disease, this service becomes a life line for many families.

Ducks for Bucks also works together with the National Niemann-Pick Disease Foundation to help provide an  Equipment Exchange Program for NPD families. This program allows families to share costly equipment that they no longer need with other families who can benefit from the equipment.  http://www.nnpdf.org/familyservices_09.html
