Dallas, TX - Today we are extremely proud to announce the launch of The Ruth Cheatham Foundation! The foundation was established to honor and continue the work of an amazing woman, beautiful wife, educator, mentor, friend, aunt and unconditional loving mother Ruth Cheatham.

Ruth had a passion for literature, education and mentoring the youth of North Texas. Our plan is to continue that mission and build on her legacy! We all loved Ruth dearly and because of her we were inspired to give back in her name. Anything bearing Ruth's name demands the highest standards of ethical, honest and compassionate giving, we are 100% committed to that.

“We are thrilled to bring additional support to adolescent cancer patients and survivors here in our DFW market” said Lindsay Whittemore President and Co-Founder. “We want to honor Ruth the best way we know and carry on her legacy. She has mentored and taught so many North Texas’ youth and she is the core inspiration of this foundation.”

The Ruth Cheatham Foundation champions adolescents in their fight against cancer, while inspiring hope and providing resources for survivors to excel throughout their lifetime. Our mission is simple; Advocacy, Education and Financial Aid for young adults in all stages of the cancer battle.
