RSF resident Shirin Raiszadeh and her daughter, Sophie, a Solana Santa Fe 6th grade student, hosted a fundraising event on Dec. 19 at C. Wonder in the Fashion Valley shopping center.
10 percent of the evening’s proceeds will benefit SHaRE (Spine Humanitarian and Research Education), which was started by Shirin’s husband, Dr. Kam Raiszadeh, an orthopaedic spine surgeon. The mission of SHaRE is to deliver humanitarian care to underprivileged patients, support research for causes and cures of spine-related pain, and provide non-biased education to the public.
The nonprofit has already brought a young girl from Brunei to San Diego for surgery that has drastically improved her quality of life. (Look for a story on Dr. Kam Raiszadeh and his work in an upcoming issue of this newspaper.)
