A kind gentleman, Mr. Helbush asked us if it was too late to create his legacy. "I want to do something significant, but it's been so long since my wife, Doris, has passed away."
Don Helbush came to the Foundation after talking with Dr. Bruce Miller about how to set up a memorial fund in tribute to his wife. Don had been inspired by their talk. “It’s never too late!” was the soft reply from Karen Good, executive director of Marshall Foundation. After thirty-five years, Don retired as Chief of the Adult Probation department for San Mateo County. He and his wife, Doris, chose Shingle Springs as their new home. But shortly thereafter, Doris became sick with pancreatic cancer. Eight years later...Don was excited to know that his generous cash gifts to The Endowment for Health would accomplish his desire to convey his thoughts and heartfelt memories for Doris. The possibilities are endless for accomplishing your dream! Don’s caring gifts now benefit generations to come in remembrance of a very special lady.
