We are Very Pleased to Announce...
The Doc Lewis Foundation is Now a Recognized 509a2 Public Charity
Doc Lewis Foundation
I am so very pleased to share with you the good news that the Doc Lewis Foundation has been qualified as a 509(a)(2)Public Charitable Organization consistent with IRS Code 501(c) (3).
This now allows our supporters to make tax deductible contributions directly to the Doc Lewis Foundation in support of our work with individuals and families affected by Cerebral Palsy.
We want to thank all of those who have supported us while we worked to obtain approval from the IRS. It's now official – and we hope that our new status will enable many more companies to make donations consistent with their internal charitable giving policies.
For families and individuals, your donations now qualify as tax deductible (please make sure you confirm current tax laws with your accountant or tax preparer). And if that helps you to share a little more with the individuals and families that we serve, then it's a Win/Win.
Our Focus & Mission
The Doc Lewis Foundation operates as a public charity in support of individuals and families. We are hands-on. We stand to help lift the arms and spirits of people who have wonderful hearts and are working to overcome the challenges that have been set before them. Their success is our success.

What I Do
I work. I play. I pray. I try to give of myself to others.
Why I Do It
I was born at only five months, that's four month premature with a birth weight of just eight ounces. The doctors pronounced me as "brain dead." My grandmother, who was a praying grandmother, told the doctors to hold on, and leave me right there in the hospital. She then gathered all of the family and they offered a prayer on my behalf. Nine hours later, they heard my first cry. And the doctors went to work. I was later diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy which many consider to be a handicap. But my grandmother and my family were determined that it would not be a handicap for me. And I was determined as well. And so it began. A journey of trial and adversity tempered with blessings from the Lord. Challenge and struggle where many times the strength I was given came only after I had done all that I could do. And that is the reason for my deep faith. God's grace is sufficient for all. Not just a few, but for all. But he expects great things from each of us if we are going to call upon that grace to help us overcome the thorns of the flesh. Helping others understand that great truth and stay focused on the prize is why I do what I do. To be an instrument in the hands of God, there can be no greater calling.

I wrote this to help others know that we place limits on ourselves. God places no limits on us.
