Emily's Education Fund

When our dear friend Kambiz Fallahpour died a few days ago of a massive heart attack it was just 5 days after his wedding anniversary and 3 days after his birthday. He left behind a precious gift to the world, his 9 year old daughter Emily.

It was his most ardent wish that nothing stand in young Emily's way of pursuing her education. Kambiz was an accomplished research scientist who published several research papers reference below. He also worked on special projects with organizations such as NASA and others. Education was extremely important to him. Emily is currently enrolled in the Quest Gifted Program for kids in Texas.

It was our desire to help facilitate financial support for the family in the most meaningful way possible. We felt the most significant form of support was to honor Kambiz’s wish for Emily to receive the best education possible throughout her upbringing. As such, we are aiming to raise $20,000 for Emily‘s Education Fund. Emily's mother Ildiko was a dedicated stay at home mom who just began school to further her own education. She will need help in this difficult time as Kambiz was the family's sole breadwinner. It is our wish to give Ildiko & Emily a little piece of mind this first holiday season without Kambiz. Please help.
No donation is too small.
