Woodall Foundation: CSCNT programs are ‘tremendously important’

Martin Woodall first became interested in donating to Cancer Support Community North Texas because of the Noogieland children’s programming. Without children of his own, he found it meaningful to give back to youth in the community.

“Martin sees the benefits to the social and emotional support provided by CSCNT,” says Adam Carriker, a longtime friend of Martin who has helped him run the Woodall Foundation. “It doesn’t just affect the person who has cancer – it affects the whole family. That’s why there’s a great need for the services CSCNT provides.”

The Woodall Foundation has consistently donated to CSCNT since 2002, when it was founded as a Gilda’s Club. Being a Vice President of Mark Cuban Companies for 30 years, one way Martin would raise funds for the foundation was through bids on a suite at the American Airlines Center to watch Dallas Mavericks basketball games.

Adam says that Martin has strict requirements when it comes to whom he donates to, and CSCNT “checks all those boxes. If it passes the Woodall test, it is certainly a worthy organization.” Since all services are provided to CSCNT participants free of charge, Adam says that “makes ever dollar donated that much more important.”

“I would encourage any donor to visit the clubhouse, as it really tells the story of the comfortable, familiar, homelike environment and is where you can see participants who have benefited from the services that help them learn how to cope with cancer,” Adam says. “A cancer diagnosis is life-changing and difficult to process, so having resources like CSCNT is tremendously important.”
