In-Kind Kindness: Tammy Haddad
Few people have the passion and commitment of Tammy Haddad. Even fewer have the roll-up-your sleeves attitude, and sheer will to drive our cause forward, bring people together, and push us closer to a cure through awareness and advocacy.
Tammy has spearheaded numerous efforts in the name of CURE. With her firm, Haddad Media, she has produced touching films including personal interviews and CURE event footage. Additionally, she and her staff have always lent a hand in any way they could—providing amazing photography, securing press before and after events, and creating and donating CURE paraphernalia—including our first iPhone case design!
She has hosted incredible events, including three White House Correspondents Brunches, where she chose to feature CURE. Because of Tammy, over 600 influential guests from politics and entertainment learned about CURE, epilepsy, and what we’re doing to eradicate this terrible disease.
When it comes to messaging, we turn to none other than Tammy. With her and friend Joe Manes’s help, we launched our extraordinarily successful Mother’s & Father’s Day campaign, which funded three young investigators—the future of epilepsy research. She was also instrumental in launching CURE’s social media and web presence. Her savvy resulted in the redesign of our website, and the creation of “Chair’s Corner,” Susan Axelrod’s blog.
What Tammy has done to raise the profile of this cause is nothing short of extraordinary. And, when someone who is not even personally affected by epilepsy does as much as she has done, it’s hard to find words to express our gratitude.
Thank you to Tammy Haddad, and her fabulous staff at Haddad Media. Thank you for not only sharing our vision of a cure, but for doing everything imaginable to make that vision a reality.
