What we aim to solve

FECT aims to solve, above all, the wide range of problems that arise when any of our core values of Freedom, Education, Community, and Trust are lacking. Our founding project is Living With Synovial Sarcoma, an online support group for more than 800 patients and their caregivers who are living with the rare cancer synovial sarcoma.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

FECT volunteers broadly support a wide range of programs in a variety of areas to help promote
our core values of Freedom, Education, Community, and Trust. Our longest and most successful project to date, Living With Synovial Sarcoma, showcases a core goal of FECT in all that we do: helping marginalized people in dire circumstances to be seen and supported for who they are.

FECT continues to develop new programs that can be sustained by volunteers with little to no funding while we grow and seek program-specific funding whenever possible.

FECT's robust team of volunteers includes legal professionals, educators, farmers, and artists who are passionate about the unique individual projects they create, implement, and manage with our help. Their vital expertise in their specialities and willingness to volunteer their time to FECT is the entirety of our capabilities.

FECT has and continues to serve as a framework to bring together a wide range and variety of different programs and projects that help promote our core values of Freedom, Education, Community, and Trust.
