In my profession as a Social Worker I see the need every day that the families of children with cancer have. The uncertainty of the outcome of the treatments the child is receiving. The financial burden that is imposed on the parents as they seek these treatments. Travel and lodging expenses are a huge problem. This foundation has been instrumental to the families that have been referred to them. Their response has been swift and in one case that I am aware of it was in the same day. This is almost unheard of and I commend them for the work they do, the passion they show to each and every family they support, and their willingness to provide the much needed assistance that gives these families some peace of mind in an already upsetting situation

The role in the community that this foundation provides is essential to the families of children that have been diagnosed with cancer. The support that they provide is much needed. Most of the support and donations given in the name of cancer goes mostly toward research and to hospitals like St Jude's and Monroe Carroll Children's hospitals. It seems that the cancer patients and their families have all been forgotten in the process. One thing that we have to remember when we are donating is that in order to use the new treatments that have been developed through the money donated to research is we have to get these patents to the facilities to receive the treatments. This is where this foundation steps in and provides the funds that no one else does. From what I've seen and read about this foundation they get these children to and from the treatment facilities so they can utilize the most advance treatments available. I recommend that everyone think about the money they donate and not just automatically give it to research and to Hospitals and think about giving a portion of your donations to foundations like this one.

Most of the time on Cancer Free Radio, the cancer prevention dialogue focuses on breast cancer and how women can take preemptive measures to improve survival due to early detection. I think, as a gender, women tend to be more likely to investigate health concerns and to seek guidance from other women and health advisors.

That’s why I definitely wanted to highlight this resource. Sadly, the creation of this foundation was prompted by the loss of teenager, Brad Coleman, to testicular cancer. My guess is that few families sit their young sons down and explain to them that they need to check their parts with scrutiny on a regular basis, as a normal personal health check. This foundation helps to make this life saving early detection message one that can be delivered and heeded by young men. - Julie Joyce, Exec. Producer & Host, Cancer Free Radio
