Wayne, PA -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/01/2016 -- Brett Furman's real estate practice is driven by two things: his love for the community and his love for giving back.
To that end, he has established two separate but important charities that give back not only to his community but to the greater good as well.
Furman grew up in a home whose focus was on giving back. His parents were a pediatrician and a grade school teacher. Two people whose careers were nothing more than giving back.
"My parents instilled in me a sense of giving. After I lost them both, I realized the void they left could never close, but it could be partially filled," said Furman.
Furman created two charities for his parents' honor. For his late father, the Harold B. Furman Memorial Research Fund for ALS research and the Flora M. Furman American Cancer Society fund.
Harold B. Furman Memorial Research Fund for ALS
Losing a family member to any disease is a terrible thing. Brett Furman saw firsthand the ravages of ALS on his father, a man who dedicated his life to the healing and treatment of diseases in children. Dr. Furman succumbed to ALS in 1994 and Brett has never forgotten.
"When the ALS ice bucket challenge came around, I was one of the participants. It gave me great joy to be a part of such a wonderful way to raise money for ALS research that I almost forgot the water was cold," said Furman.
Flora M. Furman American Cancer Society Fund
Flora Furman was first a teacher and then a mother. She stopped teaching when her three children were born, one of whom was Brett. Mrs. Furman contracted cancer in 1995 and lost her fight in 2000. Like his father, Brett wanted the memory of his mother to be a positive one. He started a second charity in her name; this time for cancer research.
""My mother faced cancer with hope and strength," said Brett. "It's in her honor that I support American Cancer Society to help them work towards more research, better treatment, and more happy endings." said Brett.
