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.

It amazes me how so many big named non-profits accepts millions on dollars of donations each year in the name of cancer. Yet when a family calls them for help they get referred to the Brad Coleman Cancer Foundation. This foundation receives only a drop in the bucket of donations compared to the big named non-profits, but they have never turned a family away that’s need help. This is what sets this foundation apart from all the rest 100% of every dime raised is put to work by helping others not paying the salaries of the ones that work there. They have no paid employees. Currently they have nine different families that they are helping on a monthly basis. Five of which were referred by larger non-profits. Something is wrong with this picture. I give my charity donations to this foundation because I know fist hand what they are about and I have seen their work in action.

I have heard first hand stories of how this foundation has not only helped financially when they can to any child suffering from cancer, but of the hope that they give to these families. Always encouraging with words and prayers. God bless them for the work they are doing and will continue to do.
