NonProfit Helping Those In Need

phone: Show Phone

Welcome to Fund a Life, the organization that Shines Light in the Darkest of Moments! We are a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit based out of Brighton, MI with a mission to help individuals and families overcome obstacles caused by major life-altering circumstances of all kinds through out all of Michigan. This broad mission enables our team to insert hope into the lives of people when needed most, and provide them directly with the resources to help shine light in their darkest moments. We are an organization that was founded by Mark Howell, a Stage 4 Melanoma Cancer survivor who in 2012 at the age of 30 was given weeks to live after welcoming his oldest son into the world. Mark's life was "funded" by his community who raised hundreds of thousands of dollars as he and his young family desperately sought out options for survival. Through the generous donations and support of so many, he was afforded the opportunity to extend his life long enough to eventually find a viable option to live by traveling to endless doctors across the US and without the financial constraints that so many needless lives are ultimately lost from. Without this financial and emotional support, the rare and aggressive form of cancer he courageously battled would have taken his life swiftly.
