Buck Buck Foundation
The Buck Buck Foundation’s mission is to provide CMV children and their families with financial support, education and hope. Our goal is to raise national awareness of CMV with the aim to prevent birth defects.
The Buck Buck Foundation was founded in 2010 by Dar Hoogstad White, Buck Buck’s mother. We are a non-profit 501 (c)(3) organization dedicated to the loving memory of Bryan Keith Robison, aka Buck Buck, who bravely endured severe disabilities for 23 years due to CMV (Cytomegalovirus), a leading cause of severe childhood disability. The organization helps families in the Pacific Northwest with the goal to reach out through out the entire United States with the aim to reach international where the need is.
