LIGHT UP TO LIVE FOUNDATION MISSION
Light Up To Live Foundation is a 501 (c) (3) public charity based in Addison, TX and founded by Randall and Sherry Reed. As a military family, they are dedicated to raising awareness about the members of our U.S. Armed Forces and Veterans living with the effects of Post-Traumatic Stress (PTS), Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), tissue injury, pain and depression. The foundation funds polychromatic light therapy systems that have been shown to increase blood flow in the body and reduce associated minor pain for active military and Veterans that we identify could most benefit from its use. Light Up To Live helps connect these military members and their families to other organizations that are in alignment with our mission to provide direct aid and assistance. We want to light a path to better health.
Co-Founder, Light Up To Live Foundation
For over three decades, Randall Reed has been a successful entrepreneur in the automotive, aviation, real estate and medical industry. He is the CEO of Reed Family Enterprises, a billion-dollar entity that encompasses one of the third largest, award-winning, independent automotive dealership sales organizations, as well as a number of other holdings. Randall is part of a military family and believes in doing all we can to support our Veterans. The family created Light Up To Live Foundation after working with Veterans who were returning home from active duty. He learned of the great need for rehabilitation services to help support those returning with issues, from post-traumatic stress (PTS) to traumatic brain injury (TBI). He is an advocate of polychromatic light therapy medical devices and committed to sharing this revolutionary, drug-free therapeutic product with the world.
Co-Founder, Light Up To Live Foundation
Being part of a military family, Sherry has a passion for assisting the needs of our military forces both home and abroad. Together with Randall, they formed the Light Up To Live Foundation after seeing the effects of war on Veterans in a documentary. It was evident that help was needed for members of the military who were returning home and silently suffering with Post-Traumatic Stress, TBI, anxiety, depression and other medical issues. Creating therapeutic support options was a natural path. As a certified trainer and natural food enthusiast for over 20 years, Sherry understands the strength of the human body. After having a stroke, she tried numerous pharmaceutical recommendations to aid in her recovery. Polychromatic light therapy helped her find a clearer path to pain relief and recovery. Through the foundation, the family hopes to help others in their journey.
