The Bucksbaum Family Research Center is NOW OPEN!
Please view our ribbon-cutting ceremony that took place on October 25, 2021.
The Focus Foundation was proud to witness the official grand opening of the Bucksbaum Family Research Center! The ribbon-cutting ceremony included speeches from Jacolyn “Jackie” Bucksbaum and Dr. Carol Samango-Sprouse on this recent accomplishment.
Jacolyn Bucksbaum shared, ” …We’ve come a long way in the foundation and the work we are doing… Because I’m a film person… I kind of relate it to something in film. So for me, the analogy is Field of Dreams. If you build it they will come… So I’m really proud that we are here today and we are going to have lots of families and young people coming here… I’m proud and happy that we can help others.”
Dr. Carol Samango-Sprouse stated, ” …One day Jackie says we should start a foundation. And my father would say, ‘never say no, say why not?’ So that’s what we did, we said why not? Here we are fifteen years later and we are breaking warp speed with changing the diagnosis… It takes a village. And we are thrilled because we are leading the field. And it’s because of your support and everyone else’s. Thank you for coming and enjoy!”
The Bucksbaum Family Research Center looks forward to helping all those who pass through its doors. A huge thank you to all the team members and the community for their continued support.
