Henry Repeating Arms, one of the country’s leading firearms manufacturers, is proud to announce donations totaling $200,000 to Arkansas Children’s Hospital and the Fred & Pamela Buffett Cancer Center at Nebraska Medicine. The funds will go directly toward supporting the hospitals’ efforts in treating and caring for pediatric cancer patients, ensuring that children and their families have access to the world-class care these healthcare providers are known for.
“If I could snap my fingers and resolve one thing in this world, without a doubt, it would be childhood cancer. It’s impossible to imagine what these kids and their parents endure throughout treatment and beyond,” said Anthony Imperato, Founder and CEO of Henry Repeating Arms. “Seeing the smile of positivity and confidence on the face of a kid fighting the battle of their life is all the inspiration and motivation I need to try and help support these children and their families in any way I can. Guns for Great Causes has always been about the kids, the future of America, and I am proud to make these donations in their name.”
Arkansas Children’s is the only healthcare system in the state solely dedicated to caring for children and is nationally ranked by U.S. News & World Report in seven pediatric specialties, including cancer.
“I would like to extend our heartfelt gratitude to Henry Repeating Arms for their incredibly generous donation benefiting our Hematology-Oncology Unit,” said Taylor Speegle, Executive Director of Philanthropy for Arkansas Children’s Foundation. “This gift will help our commitment to making the children of Arkansas better today and healthier tomorrow. Thank you for your commitment to our mission and for your unwavering support of our efforts to improve the health and well-being of children.”
The Nebraska Medicine Fred & Pamela Buffett Cancer Center opened in 2017 and harnesses the most advanced biomedical and technological tools available to further understand cancer causes and create more personalized care for each patient with precise therapies to improve outcomes.
“We are grateful for Anthony’s incredible generosity in partnering with Nebraska Medicine to benefit so many families facing the challenges of a child with cancer,” said Suzanne Nuss, Ph.D., Chief Nursing Officer, Nebraska Medicine. “Today and into the future, the impact of this gift will help alleviate some of the financial pressures for so many who turn to Nebraska Medicine for the life-saving care needed for their little one.”
Since June 2022, Henry Repeating Arms has donated over $1 million through its charitable branch called Guns for Great Causes to celebrate the company’s 25th anniversary. With a primary focus on pediatric cancer, both children’s cancer hospitals and providing financial relief to individual families of sick children, Guns for Great Causes also benefits military veterans, law enforcement, and first responder organizations, particularly those assisting the wounded, injured, and the families of those who lost their lives in the line of duty.
