"I wanted to turn this tragedy into hope, into a medical breakthrough, into a cure. It is Shiri and her struggle that has inspired me."

No Worries Now

No Worries Now, formerly the Shiri Foundation, was created to raise funds for cancer research and to support youth living with cancer and keep them from missing out on typical teen experiences. The signature effort was to create proms for teens who, like Fred's friend Shiri, might otherwise not make it to their own proms. Now a national nonprofit, No Worries Now has several initiatives including "Prom in a Box," empowering other teens with the tools to throw their own meaningful proms.
