Our Mission, Our Vision, Our Values
The Bernie Mac Foundation is dedicated to preserving and continuing the vision and legacy of its creator, Bernie Mac, who desired to use his celebrity to promote awareness and research of the disease known as Sarcoidosis, as well as to raise funds in an effort to bridge the gap between the medical professionals who treat, and the patients who suffer from Sarcoidosis; thereby providing support to Sarcoidosis patients everywhere.
Our vision is to become a beacon of hope to Sarcoidosis patients everywhere—particularly to those who do not have access to care. It is our hope that through raising funds toward extensive medical research, we will be a part of the puzzle that gets one step closer to solving the mystery that is Sarcoidosis, so that Sarcoidosis patients can be treated with the same urgency and care as Cancer or HIV patients, and so that a cure is found so that no one else has to suffer or lose their life to Sarcoidosis as Bernie did.
Guided by the McCullough family’s charitable spirit and with the help of our friendships and partnerships throughout the community, The Bernie Mac Foundation is dedicated to continuing Bernie’s legacy of humility, charity, and sympathy by promoting scientific research and awareness.
We are aggressively working toward the prevention and treatment of Sarcoidois, focusing on the disadvantaged, who would otherwise not have access to resources.
