In Oct 2009, he began the Charles Burch Breast Cancer Foundation under the auspice of the Susan G  Koman Foundation, to help bring a greater awareness to Breast Cancer, as his sister valiant fought and campaigned as well .

Ms. Pertania Burch succumbed to the disease in 2010, but the energy and drive she left with friends and loved ones still permeate to this day.
