mission & vision

No need is too small and no voice is too quiet to be heard. We will devote the time and energy necessary to educate, advocate and fund research to help improve the lives of kids with cancer. 

Our founder and Co-cHairs

Helping our friends who had cancer was initially a simple reflex and was supposed to be a one-time event but it became a life-long journey. We are so fortunate to be able to help improve the lives of others and look forward to continuing to partner on the fundraising side and Teagan on the science research side of the equation with some of the most passionate and driven individuals on the globe.
