Cinderella Cares is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization created to honor Nursing Assistant Cinderella Salmon, who lost her battle to lung cancer in 2011. Through her struggle, Cinderella remained joyful and self-sacrificing as she continued to care for others by giving back to her family, coworkers, and community. Her children, Health Care Administrator Sonia Salmon-Gayle (President), along with her brothers, Comedian Ian Salmon (Vice-President), and Artist Eglon Daley (Treasurer), felt called upon to use their talents to develop a unique approach to fundraising through the medium of comedy and the arts.

"We want to raise revenues to assist families as they navigate their way through 'The System' to survival," says Gayle. "Our motto is Awareness, Cure, and Early Detection (ACE). We want to help reduce the mortality rate so that our community's loved ones can live longer lives, free from cancer."
