Stimulated by his cancer experiences, Mike Armstrong and his wife Anne reassessed their priorities in life and contributions to society. As such, they decided to dedicate the majority of their remaining time and life savings to helping others in need.
Their very first project was inspired by Mike’s experiences visiting children in the cancer ward at the University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer Center where he received treatment for his leukemia. Realizing how difficult it was for these kids to spend their precious childhood dealing with cancer and treatment, Mike helped develop and fund mobile play stations for pediatric cancer patients at UCLA and other hospitals in California.
Many more opportunities to give back followed as part of Mike and Anne’s newly found purpose to ease suffering and help those in need. In addition to financial support, Mike and Anne are actively involved in helping design, plan, and execute many of these projects. A few of these are presented below.
