OUR MISSION

CFF lives by the motto – ‘We Believe’; informing our youth that we, CFF, believe in their future to live a fulfilling, sustainable life with liver disease or disorder. CFF wants everyone to feel confident that we are here to help, constantly sending the message to let survivors and fighters know that they are not alone in this journey.

CFF’s family support services will focus on providing meet-up groups, social gatherings and more. CFF will ensure that pediatric liver disease and disorders are recognized, acknowledged, prevented and treated by providing educational and developmental resources, and family support services to those affected.

WHY WE ARE HERE

DeMarre’s Journey…

DeMarre Carroll is an American Basketball player for the Brooklyn Nets. DeMarre was diagnosed with liver disease at age 21 – just a few weeks prior the official 2009 NBA draft he was set to enter. Having this life-threatening scare wakened DeMarre to learn more about his disease, ways to sustain a long life, and methods to maintain good health. As a young athlete, DeMarre was encouraged to maintain a healthy lifestyle, including nutritional adjustments, physical exercise and day-to-day monitoring of his disease. Now, at age 31, and being a starting player for the Brooklyn Nets, DeMarre has launched the Carroll Family Foundation to provide resources and be a mentor for youth dealing with similar diseases by showing them we believe in them and their future.

PURPOSE

The Carroll Family Foundation (CFF) is a non-profit organization founded by NBA player and liver disease awareness advocate DeMarre Carroll. CFF focuses on education and raising funds toward developing enhanced preventives, diagnostic services and treatments for adolescents suffering from pediatric liver disease or disorders.
