EB MEDICAL RESEARCH FUND
"Epidermolysis Bullosa is a rare genetic disease in which a person's skin is missing the cell membrane between the dermis and epidermis that binds the skin together," explains Cox, who was made aware of the disease when a friend's child was born with it. "I feel so blessed and fortunate to have a healthy child. That's one of the main reasons I've gotten involved."

BREAKAWAY FROM CANCER
"When you're dealing with cancer, you're vulnerable and at the mercy of your doctors. You need support. And the way that you empower people is through knowledge-with an outreach program that gives them information," says Dempsey whose mother is an ovarian cancer survivor. "The goal of Breakaway from Cancer (BFC) is to put cancer patients and their families in touch with a health-care expert who can act like a caseworker-one person who takes you through the entire process."

"My mother ran a toddlers' school in our loft for ten years, and I became her assistant by default. So I've always been aware of the value of childhood development and education," says Danes who supports Donors Choose, "a Web site that was created to take the burden off families-who too often are asked to compensate for what's lacking-by providing resources for teachers in public schools."

THE BRAIN TRUST
"I've been able to bring awareness to this cause because I know how it works from a personal level," says Whitaker whose grandmother was diagnosed with a golf-ball-size brain tumor and given less than a year to live, but through surgery and cutting-edge procedures she lived for seven more years. "I've met so many people whose lives have been changed because of it." Funds raised support the neurological reasearch and programs conducted at the Johnnie L. Cochran Jr. Brain Tumor Center at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center.
