Bobby Engram FoundationWhen Bobby Engram's daughter Bobbi approached and told him she wanted to talk about her disease so she could help families, he listened. Bobbi has sickle cell anemia. When she was a baby, Bobby and his wife Deanna struggled to find information about the disease that caused pain to their child. As she grew, and the pain episodes came and went, the family explored options to help their little girl deal with her pain. Now they want to help other families in their ongoing campaign.

Bobby is a celebrity who is speaking openly about the care of his family and the efforts it takes to work with hospitals, clinics and other families to get the word out about this disease. Sickle cell does not get better. It is something parents and children have to find out how to manage.

The Bobby Engram Foundation has been founded to help others in pain. With your help, the Foundation will bring awareness and knowledge to those who support our efforts. We are pleased you have chosen to visit the site.

USA Freedom Corps, President Bush's initiative to promote volunteer service among Americans, today announced that National Football League (NFL) players will be honored with the President's Volunteer Service Award for their remarkable volunteer service, particularly by promoting the importance of fitness and health among youth through the NFL’s PLAY 60 campaign. Members of the President's Council on Service and Civic Participation and the President's Council on Physical Fitness and Sports, as well as senior White House staff, will present awards to players from the 12 home teams on Sunday, November 30, and the remaining awards will be presented to players from the remainder of the 32 teams throughout the season.

“These players are not only leaders on the football field, they are also leaders within the communities they serve,” said USA Freedom Corps Acting Director Alison Young. “Through the President’s Volunteer Service Award, we honor and thank these men for their service to our nation’s young people and for representing the best of the American volunteer spirit.”

Following the attacks of 9/11, President George W. Bush issued a national Call to Service and launched USA Freedom Corps to connect Americans with more opportunities to serve their country and to foster a culture of service, citizenship and responsibility. He created the President’s Volunteer Service Award to recognize the countless acts of service and sacrifice shown by Americans of all ages. [via]
