Red Dog foundation is an amazing foundation. My family has been traveling to Sloan-kettering for 5 years now. Once My son was off treatment we stopped getting help from all foundations but Red dog for traveling. Financially it has been a strain on us but we have no other choice but to get our son to his Dr. Parking in NYC is crazy. you can't ever find a parking spot on the street. You are forced to park in the garages. It cost so much to park your vehicle there. Parking is our biggest expense. The red dog foundation has helped us financially so much.

Red Dog Foundation has been terrific. They are quick to support, no questions asked. The expenses for battling cancer can mount very quickly, so having one less financial burden is a major relief.

Hi my name is Cathy but more importantly my daughter's name is Jillian. She had AML Leukemia. Over her almost 4 year battle, my son donated his bone marrow twice and I my kidney to help save her life. What a difficult time for me being a single mom and having to quit my job so I can be with my Jillian daily to assist and help her as well as sleep over every other night (taking turns with her father). Parking and tolls quickly adds up and for me not working it was draining. I am so grateful to Red Dog Foundation for giving me the assistance I needed at such a difficult time. My daughter since passed March of 2013. I am struggling to cope with this but again having caring organizations such as this is truly a blessing. Thank you so much.

Red dog foundation is amazing. My 7 year old daughter just completed 6 weeks of radiation and chemotherapy at New York prebyterian to combat a rare condition in children known as glioblastoma. It was a grueling and expensive journey. But thanks to red dog for reimbursing us for the parking expenses. They came through for my family when we really needed them. God bless the people at red dog. Alex contreras.

I HAVE BEEN A DONOR SINCE DAY ONE. RALPH WAS MY NEPHEW, WHO WAS WITH US A VERY SHORT TIME. HIS BROTHER MICHAEL, PROMISED THAT RALPH'S LEGACY WILL CONTINUE, THEFORE HE ORGANIZED THE RED DOG FOUNDATION. I HAVE READ ALL THOSE STORIES OF THE FAMILIES HE HAS HELPED. THEY ARE SO APPRECIATIVE OF WHAT RED DOG HAS DONE FOR THEM. I WILL ALWAYS CONTINUE TO DONATE TO THE FOUNDATION, BECAUSE OF ALL THE HELP THEY GIVE TO THESE FAMILIES.

Red Dog Foundation is a great organization that has directly impacted families who have a child with cancer. By offering funds to pay for parking at NYC hospitals, a financial burden is lifted off of these families during a very difficult time. I went to their gala this month and it was so much fun; I will gladly support Red Dog in the future.

The Red Dog Fund is an amazing non profit organization. They bring people together to raise money for a great cause. They took a tragic event and turned it into an amazing celebration of a loved ones memory and are helping alot of people in need in the process. I have attended every event since the organization has been created and every one of them was a hit. The amount of dedication from the Califano family is heartwarming and really gives people a sense of the passion they have to keep this organization alive. I look forward to many years of fun filled events with the Red Dog Fund.
