Faith Moving Forward Foundation is a foundation that exists to glorify our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Life has a way of having many hills and valleys and FMF is a result of one of those valleys. My daughter Sydnee Faith Owens passed away as a result of Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma after a 61/2 yr battle with it and the after effects of a stem cell transplant. I have come to find out through life circumstances when you pass through the hurts and valleys of life we can either run from God and be angry or we can run to Him and learn from and allow the love He shows us to compel us to show that same love and comfort to others that are hurting. Thus the birth of the foundation.
Our passion is to share the hope that Jesus Christ gives us to the hurting world around us. As God’s Word tells us in Romans 8:18, “For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worth comparing with the glory that is to be revealed to us.” As a foundation we want as many people as possible to know this kind of hope.
Our mission is to fulfill the dream that started with Sydnee and her sister to bring clean water to Haiti, but more importantly her passion to bring the hope of Christ to a hurting people. Since that time we have expanded to bring the love of Christ to other hurting families in our area dealing with cancer by coming alongside them financially through the foundation. We also want to encourage those going into the medical field by providing a scholarship to honor Sydnee’s life. Through this scholarship we want recipients to pass on the same loving care Sydnee received as they embark on their careers in healthcare.
