We had a fantastic time this past weekend meeting new friends, seeing some familiar faces and celebrating the impact we can each have on this world! It’s always exciting to share the Consano story, and these roadshow events make that a fun experience, too. Stay tuned for our next roadshow event… info to come soon! And thank you Los Angeles, for healing it forward with us!

We hope you will join us for a night of great food, spirits, silent auction and inspiration! This fundraiser raises nearly all of Consano’s operating expenses for the year, enabling us to continue directing 100% of every project and Honor Fund donation to medical research. You make it possible! 



If you are interested in sponsorship opportunities or silent auction donations, contact us at: info@consano.org

10/21/17! Consano PDX 2017 is already in the works! Get ready for a night of great food, company and inspiration. We will be taking your nominations for our “Ripples of Hope” award, too. This year’s recipient will follow in the footsteps of our inaugural winners Paul, Cady & Lucy Goddard Kalanithi. If you or your company would like to get involved, email us at info@consano.org. This event generates the majority of our operating income for the entire year — you make it possible! So save the date and help us spread the word! #HealItForward

A global event taking place every year on February 4th, World Cancer Day unites the world’s population in the fight against cancer.

In honor of #WorldCancerDay, here are some ways you can help advance cancer research with us:

  1. Support a cancer research crowdfunding project. Donate any amount (small or large) and receive ongoing updates from the researcher about the progress of the project.
  2. Start an Honor Fund to raise money for cancer research that matters to you without the time and money required to start your own foundation. If you don’t know which researcher or lab to support, Team Consano will help you find one!
  3. Support our general cancer research fund, The #WorldCancerDay Hope Fund. 100% of this fund will directly support vetted cancer research projects.

Let’s #HealItForward together!

There are still a few days left to sneak in that end-of-year donation! FYI, Consano is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization, and our employer ID number (EIN) is 46-0745383 (just in case you need it for tax deduction purposes!). Here are some ways to give at www.consano.org:

  1. Donate to a research project which has the potential to lead to improved treatments and outcomes for patients.
  2. Support a friend or family member’s Honor Fund.
  3. Start your own Honor Fund in honor or in memory of a loved one.
  4. Donate to The Hope Fund, our general fund that supports research in a variety of health categories.
  5. Donate to the Consano platform to help us continue to direct 100% of research donations to the research that matters to you.

Thank you for all of your very generous support in 2016! Recap of the year coming soon…

#GivingTuesday with our friends at Threads Worldwide!

As many of you know, #GivingTuesday is the Tuesday after Black Friday and Cyber Monday. It is a day to kick-start the gift of giving during the holiday seasons. This year, in addition to supporting a research project or Honor Fund, you can also buy “gifts with impact” for your family.

When you make a purchase with Threads Worldwide between November 25th and 29th, 20% of your purchase will be donated to Consano! Threads Worldwide creates life changing work for women around the world through the fair trade of handmade artisan jewelry and accessories. Creating opportunities for women is the most effective way to eradicate poverty, build thriving communities and connect our world. The holidays are a great time to shop for items that have meaning behind them and that are helping others. Not only will you be helping Thread’s artisan partners who make the beautiful jewelry and accessories, but you will be benefiting Consano, too! To shop, go to: www.staceystefanelli.threadsworldwide.com

To ensure that Consano receives the 20% donation from your purchase, please send an email to staceyjgill@hotmail.com saying that you placed your order. Threads will be having sales on Black Friday, Cyber Monday, and Fair Trade Tuesday, so watch for great deals during those days. And thank you in advanced for supporting Consano to get our “Season of Giving” this #GivingTuesday off to a fantastic start

In the spirit of David Letterman (only far less funny), here are my Top 10 Reasons to join me at the Consano PDX event on Saturday, October 1st in Portland:

#10: The event is presented by Oregon Anesthesiology Group, which means there will be a large number of anesthesiologists on hand ready to intubate at a moment’s notice (safety first).

#9: You get to see what “live” crowdfunding looks like with a really fun crowd.

#8: Deb Knapp from Portland’s KATU will be the emcee. She’s so kind and friendly, and you’ve probably always wanted to meet her in person. Read more »

How is it August already?! The summer is flying by, which means our October 1st Portland event is just around the corner. First things first, you can buy tickets and sponsorships here: https://consano.auctionreg.org

I’m particularly excited for the event as this year we are giving out our inaugural “Ripples of Hope” award, which honors an individual or family who has shared their story to impact countless others and make us feel like we aren’t alone in our own experience. Read more »
