We have came along ways in four years. Our family assistance program has gained more and more popularity. We get referrals for all of the major children's hospitals throughout Tennessee. We also continue to provide funding to families that have been referred to us by The American Cancer Society. We have provided our testicular awareness program to over 5000 students. We do numerous fund raiser throughout the year to raise funds to support our mission. We are in the process of getting our name out in hopes we can become a nationally recognized charity. I am also proud of the fact that we have accomplished everything that we have done with an all volunteer staff. We have no paid employees so 100% of every dollar raised is put to work helping others. All of our staff work extremely hard and I want to commend each and every one of them.

This foundation has made a tremendous difference to many different families who have called upon us for help. We have funded travel and lodging expenses as they seek treatments for their child. We have eased the pain of worrying about how they were going to get the money they needed to travel and a place to stay. We have two families that are traveling to MD Anderson in Houston Texas from Tennessee. And have been told by one of them that they would not know what they would have done if it hadn't been for us. We are making a difference and will continue to do so as long as we are able. We also have developed an educational program that has been placed in 125 schools. This program stresses the importance of self exam for testicular cancer. Early detection is the key to survival. We provide these program free of charge. We are also proud of the fact that all of our Board Members, Officers and Staff Volunteer their time so all proceeds raised goes directly toward doing to foundations work.

I have donated to this foundation at most all of the fundraisers that they have had. Being from the town where this foundation is based and knowing the reason why it was founded, gives me great satisfaction knowing that the money I donate will be use to it's fullest extent, helping the families of children that have cancer. I know or know of, most of the Board Members and they are some of the most trustworthy people I have met. The Coleman's the family of Brad the person that the foundation was founded in memory of, have turned the tragic loss of their Son into a gift that has given so much to families that are in the same situation that they have been in. I will galdly give all I can give to this foundation to help them continue making a differen

When my four year old son had brain cancer I was in a high risk pregnancy and since I couldn't touch him for 72 hrs everytime he had chemo that meant his dad was off work the whole 11 months that our son was fighting for his life if it hadn't been for John Coleman helping us there would have been many times we couldn't have ate while stuck at the hospital and alot of trips for treatment would have been impossible as his Dr was more then an hr drive from home. This group was truly a god send to us.

Outstanding Non-Profit. I am a Social Worker at a Major Children's Hospital. I have referred several families to this foundation. They go above and beyond to make sure these families get the help they need. Mr. and Mrs. Coleman know first hand the hardships of dealing with a child that has been diagnosed with cancer. The financial burden that these families experience is overwhelming. I don't know of another organization that offer the services that they provide.

having known the family of brad for years, i m not the least bit surprised that they used their own experience of the the illness, and the unfotunate loss of their son/nephew/uncle/cousin/grandson into a way to help others..... some people are born givers. brad, himself, was a volunteer firefighter. it is amazing that in this small community we live in, that this foundation is helping so many families, and providing teaching tools to so many others...... GOD BLESS ALL OF THEM!!!!!!
