The attorneys and staff of WM are members of the Boards of the following community organizations
and support them in making our community a better place to live.
The No Bad Days Foundation supports children in Brevard County that have medical disabilities, but are unable to acquire life enhancing medical devices and other necessities. There are devices and equipment that could forever enhance the life of a child, but insurance companies may not agree that they are “medically necessary” and coverage is denied. When that happens, the No Bad Days Foundation is here to support you.
Our foundation raises funds to help families procure medical equipment and devices that provide a better quality of life for children with disabilities. No Bad Days is a 501(c)(3) and 100% of all monies collected from donations goes directly to the children. There are no administrative expenses or costly overhead.
Each year, we put on a kickball tournament and family fun day to raise money to be used to purchase these medical devices and equipment for the children. This year our fundraiser will be held on February 18th. We cannot do this without you and we are always grateful for community support.
