Susan G. Komen is one of the organizations, Alan is involved with.

While Mr. Rasof is passionate about his career, he also maintains a personal devotion to giving back to the community and offering support to organizations which represent causes he feels strongly about.  Specifically, he backs the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation and the March of Dimes.  Having lost his own mother to breast cancer, the Susan G. Komen Foundation is an organization he holds very near to his heart, and looks to align with in any way possible.

Susan G. Komen

For those who are unfamiliar with the organization, the Susan G. Komen Foundation is dedicated to saving lives and ending breast cancer altogether.  While the goal is simple, the means to that end are a bit more complicated. In terms of actionable items, the organization seeks to disseminate education on breast cancer, support research surrounding the illness, as well as offer grants that assist those afflicted with breast cancer and their families on both a financial and emotional level. However, the overarching values of empowerment, quality care, and research investment are at the root of everything the organization does.

For Alan Rasof, participation includes donating to the cause, volunteering for events with the organization, fundraising, and getting the word out about the fight against breast cancer. His family supports this cause as well, and his sister-in-law recently ran in a marathon that contributed to the foundation.

March of Dimes

His support for the March of Dimes also comes from a personal place in his life, as he has a grandson who is diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy, a disorder that most often occurs during pregnancy and fetal development.  This condition is the result of abnormal development or damage to the parts of the brain that control movement, balance, and posture, and is prominent in premature babies.

The result of said condition is a permanent affliction pertaining to movement and posture, primarily, through difficulties in learning, thinking, behavior and communication are also included.  The March of Dimes is an organization dedicated to helping women carry full-term pregnancies and have healthy babies. They strive to educate in the area of premature births and birth complications, as well as offer support to families and fund research for issues surrounding the causes and complications of birth development and defects.

Alan Rasof believes that giving back is an extremely important part of being an active member of society, and finds the work that comes along with giving back to be extremely rewarding. He is looking forward to participating in more events for these causes throughout the rest of the year.
