Tim McGraw is lending a voice to the community, but not the typical one fans hear on the radio.
Teaming up with the newly-founded company, Narus Health, McGraw will help the board create shared initiatives to improve the lives of patients living with terminal illnesses. As McGraw once faced the difficulties of critical sicknesses with his late father, Tug McGraw, he connected to Narus’s mission on a personal level.
“When I learned of Narus Health’s patient-focused approach, helping people with serious illness live their lives, it struck a chord,” said McGraw of the company.
Narus Health focuses their vision on lessening the stress for families dealing with terminal illnesses and giving patients the direct care they need it in a comfortable environment. McGraw found the company and jumped on board to support their cause.
“The opportunity to work with another team of passionate people, dedicated to the same quality of life mission as the Tug McGraw Foundation, combining our efforts, sharing resources and helping others make every moment count,” he said recently.
Founder of Narus Health and former CEO of the Nashville Entrepreneurship Center Michael Burcham was thrilled when McGraw decided to take the step and sign on to the company’s Board of Directors.
““When Tim and I shared our personal stories of loved ones who faced a serious illness and the incredible amount of stress it placed on our families, we quickly realized we shared a passion for making a difference,” said Burcham. “We could combine our teams and our talents to do something meaningful for families all over America.”
Narus Health plans to roll out their initiatives in the next coming months, with McGraw’s Tug McGraw Foundation as the inspiration behind the programming.
