FOX 32 NEWS - The Chicago Taxi Calendar is back for the fourth year in a row, and it’s better than ever!
This year’s calendar will benefit the EPIC Foundation, which is a non-profit organization that serves people with chronic illnesses.
The following is from TaxiCalendar.com:
"This year's calendar will benefit the EPIC Foundation. 50% of all proceeds will be donated to EPIC. The EPIC Foundation is a non-profit organization that serves people with chronic illnesses, with a particular focus on rare diagnosis' such as Cushings Disease, Addison's Disease and Adult Growth Hormone Deficiency.
The beloved Elvis Presley suffered from Cushing Disease. Our calendar cover-girl is dressed in an Elvis costume to bring awareness to this rare disease that often goes undiagnosed.
The EPIC Foundation was founded by Dr. Karen Thames. She is a licensed clinical psychologist that suffered from Cushings Disease. Through her long journey to finding the right doctors and an accurate diagnosis, she came to understand the trauma and other struggles that patients face. Dr. Thames is currently in remission and spends her time empowering other patients that are in need of education, support and advocacy."
