About the III & Long Foundation
Santonio Holmes established The III & Long Foundation in the fall of 2011 in honor of his son Santonio III, who suffers from Sickle Cell Disease (SCD). Knowing first-hand the difficulties families face battling this disease, Santonio believes he is meant to lead the crusade against Sickle Cell Disease.
“As a parent of someone who has been diagnosed with SCD, I know how financially expensive and emotionally taxing the hospital bills and medication can be. My goal is to help families that cannot afford the proper treatments by providing grants to organizations that assist these families.”
The mission of the III & Long Foundation is to help in the research to finding a cure for Sickle Cell Disease and to assist families affected by SCD.
