Dani's Foundation actually cares about the patient. They do not give fluff support but actual hard dollars to help patient expenses. Many Foundations or non-profits say they give money to research but actually do not. Dani's Foundation prides itself on actually seeking innovative researchers who are looking for cures of pediatric cancers which is the leading killer of children.

I am honored to be associated with Dani's Foundation, a non profit organization that is committed to finding the cause and the cure for Ewing's Sarcoma and the other forms of pediatric sarcomas that are affecting children and young adults. As the Executive Director of this organization, it is my privledge to lend support to patients and their families who are in need of information and resources but I am looking forward to the year ahead when we can lend immediate financial assistance to those patients who have limited financial resources and/or who have lost their health benefits due to the current economic crisis. Our support will not only help them in navigating their cancer diagnosis and treatment but will offer a 'hand up' in the year ahead with the intent of lessening their burdens and allowing them the opportunity to focus on what is most important: recovery from their cancer diagnosis.

We are hopeful that others will join us in supporting Dani's Foundation and the Campaign to End Pediatric Sarcoma. By working together, WE CAN make a tremendous impact in the days ahead!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

hearing the stories of dispair and seen first-hand the relief when patients and their family members find a beacon of hope - Dani's Foundation - in their cancer journey.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

be able to help EVERYONE due to no limitation of funding.
