Paint For A Cure
Paint For A Cure, an organization that helps support those affected by ALS. Our main goal is to provide medically accessible housing to those with ALS who cannot afford these necessities.
The initiative for this organization came from Eric’s love for art and specifically painting. We aim to reach 1,000+ artists in the world to donate their work, or create something special for the cause, to then be auctioned off to support the homes we’re building for these families. Through the power of painting, we’re excited to dramatically change the lives of families impacted by this terrible disease.
On November 27th, 2019, the day before Thanksgiving, Eric was diagnosed with Lou Gehrig’s disease, also known as ALS. After receiving this overwhelming news, he turned to painting. Painting was a creative outlet where he was able to calm his nerves and mind while he focused on the art rather than his diagnosis.
Eric’s other passion is real estate. In 1997 he moved to Phoenix and began buying, renovating and selling homes. Over his 20+ year career he has bought and sold well over 10,000 homes from the company he started Buyazforeclosures.com. In addition he has a passion of building multi million dollar properties. Paint For A Cure brings together Eric’s love for painting and Real Estate.

In addition, Jen brings a great deal of experience volunteering for charitable organizations, most recently having served on the Board of the Arizona Humane Society.
Jen plays a pivotal role in all aspects of Paint For A Cure. She not only takes care of Eric, but she also has two beautiful children with Eric. She proudly supports Paint For A Cure and brings the much needed perspective of a caregiver for someone with ALS (cALS). Eric and Jen are in this together!
