FAv Foundation Inc. 2019 Fundraiser
Our President, Darren Illingworth and his lovely wife Joanne have always had a heart for the FAv Foundation and the amazing work they do! We always look forward to a wonderful night celebrating and raising support + awareness for the great work they do here in our city! ♥
FAv Foundation is a Registered Regina Charity that raises money for Fanconi Anemia Research and raises awareness about the One Match Registry – Canada’s Bone Marrow/Stem Cell Registry. FAv fights in honour of our Fanconi Anemia fighter, Vonn Chorneyko. Vonn has a very rare, life threatening genetic disease called Fanconi Anemia. FA leads to bone marrow failure, leukemia and other types of cancers – this disease is so rare that he is the only person with FA in Saskatchewan. Families affected by this rare disease feel compelled to fundraise, fight and race against the clock to find a cure for this devastating disease. Currently Vonn is in “bone marrow failure”, however currently he is stable and is a happy, active, 8-year-old boy. In the near future Vonn will need to undergo a bone marrow/stem cell transplant, his best chances of survival is to find the “best” stem cell match out there. FAv Foundation along with Vonn’s parents are passionate about raising awareness about One Match; they are hopeful that their son will find a perfect match when it comes time for his transplant.

Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation [JDRF]
On Friday, April 27th Floors by Design put on a Bunco Fundraiser for Juvenile Diabetes (JDRF) hosted by Jameson’s on Grant! We invited you to enjoy a fun night of socializing with friends. This event was open to all Floors by Design friends and family, with the freedom to extend the invitation to other friends and family. There will be 50/50 tickets and raffle baskets - All proceeds were donated to JDRF. We were excited to be supporting a wonderful organization!
For more than 40 years, JDRF has been a leader in the search for an end to type 1 diabetes (T1D), through both research funding and advocacy. JDRF’s research is committed to improving the lives of every person with T1D and to curing this disease. JDRF's research goals are realized by the projects being supported in three basic areas: Cure, Treat, Prevent.
• Cure therapies (Restoring a person’s insulin-producing capability and halting or reversing the body’s misguided immune attack on the pancreas);
• Treatment therapies (Developing new devices and therapies that transform the way people with T1D treat the disease today in order to help them live healthier lives now and in the future); and,
• Preventive therapy research (Keeping future generations from getting T1D or stopping the disease process before it damages the pancreas).
We have exciting news and wanted to share it with you because without you we couldn’t have made this happen.
Together we raised over $1,300.00 to help find a cure for T1D.
On behalf of individuals and their families living with T1D, Thank you for support! Together, we will turn type one into type none. Please pass this exciting news onto friends and family who were also able to attend.
For those of you who were unable to make it, we’re sorry you missed it and hope you can join us in the future. We look forward to the Floors by Design social committee’s next event.
Thanks again for taking the time to support us and others!

The Casey Foundation in support of Autism assists children with their unique needs. Agencies that offer services and treatments for autism are limited in their availability and unaffordable to many families. By assisting with the costs involved in accessing available services, their hope is that no child need be prevented from developing to their fullest potential.
FAv Gala for Fanconi Anemia - Platinum Sponsor – May 13, 2016
Fanconi Anemia (FA) is a genetic disorder that leads to progressive, severe bone marrow failure. The effects of the disease are devastating, leaving patients weak, prone to severe bleeding due to insufficient blood clotting and susceptible to infection. Though considered primarily a blood disease, it may affect all systems of the body. Many children do not survive to adulthood.
FA patients are extremely likely to develop a variety of cancers and at a much earlier age than patients in the general population. Patients who have had a successful bone marrow transplant and are therefore cured of the blood problem associated with FA still must have regular examinations to watch for signs of cancer. If you are between 17-34, consider signing up for One Match to help save a life.
The Ladyballs Show & Tell – Arrival Carpet – May 10, 2016
To ensure all gala guests got the star treatment, we donated a teal colored arrival carpet (the color of ovarian cancer awareness).
Every year, 2800 women in Canada are diagnosed with Ovarian Cancer. Ovarian Cancer Canada provides leadership by supporting women living with the disease and their families, raising awareness among the general public and health care professionals, and funding research to develop early detection techniques, improved treatments and ultimately a cure.
Regina Humane Society
For many years, we’ve been donating our small carpet remnants and old sample carpets to the Regina Humane Society so that the cats and dogs have a comfortable place to rest until they are adopted.
