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.

The Brad Coleman Cancer Foundation has been helping kids all over Tennessee for three years now. They never turn any child away that is battling cancer. They know what it is like to have a child in the hospital and be very low on funds and really just scared on what the next day will bring! As a volunteer for the BCCF I get very passionate about these kids and what we are trying to achieve as a whole. We want to help families in need! To ease their burden as much as possible. By sending them money monthly they know that they will have the money to take their children to the hospital for treatments or whatever it is that they need most! This year our church hosted our first 5K Run, Missionary Grove Presents, Run For The Kids for the Brad Coleman Cancer Foundation. It was so awesome seeing so many people come out to support this great cause and knowing 100 % of all money raised went directly to all these families with children battling cancer! I personally am so thankful for The Brad Coleman Cancer Foundation. Even though we did lose Brad, a part of him will live on through this foundation and helping these children! God Bless!

Brad was a very amazing guy. He had a heart of pure gold, and went above and beyond to help anyone who needed his help! This Foundation is doing the same thing. The Brad Coleman Cancer Foundation is helping so many children and their families right now, by knowing first hand the struggles families face while battling Cancer. The Trips to the Doctors, Hospital stays, and Food? It gets so expensive. This Foundation CARES! It KNOWs what these Kids and their Families are going through! It strives to put the word out there and Educate people on Testicular Cancer Awareness! God Bless each and every member of the Brad Coleman Cancer Foundation!!! They are doing an amazing Job!

This foundation is a inspiration to those in need. As a family member of Brads, I seen the struggle that Aunt Sheila and Uncle John went through to make sure Brad got the treatment he needed. Unfortunately, we didn't get the outcome we had hoped and prayed for. But through this foundation, they can help ease the stress and financial struggles the families go through. They also are helping get the light shone on the type of cancer it self. So much research and light has been shined on other kinds of cancer but this one type you never hear about. And personally i think its great that as a small town foundation, its getting the attention that it deserves.

I have been volunteering for this foundation ever since it started. I now how hard everyone works to raise the funds needed to help all the families that they help. I have heard all the stories and responses they get from the families that they are helping. I have also witnessed how fast they spring into action when they receive a request for emergency funds. They are in my opinion a top notch foundation.
