PLEASE JOIN US IN OUR FIGHT
ASPS is a cause close to LisaRaye and Derek Blanks’ heart. Jemisha McFerrin, LisaRaye’s long time friend and makeup artist as well as a friend and colleague to Derek, lost her battle with ASPS in 2012 at the age of 29. The Jem’s Life foundation seeks to raise funds and awareness for those suffering with ASPS and their families as they fight one of the hardest battles of their lives.
When & Where
Jem's Life for ASPS
Jem’s Life for ASPS foundation was formed in 2010 after celebrity makeup artist Jemisha McFerrin was diagnosed with ASPS. Sadly Jemisha lived misdiagnosed for nearly 9 years before her passing. In wake of Jemisha’s passing the foundation strives to keep her mission alive by helping others battling this rare and deadly disease by raising funds, awareness and supporting their immediate needs so they can focus as they fight one of the biggest fights of their lives.
