GO 4 THE GOAL ROCKS!!!!!!!!!! Writing from Children's National Medical Center in D.C. I am a social work graduate intern working in the Oncology unit here and been so impressed and amazed by this incredible (and very organized) group. The quick responses to request, the timely nature of receiving the actual items, the friendly nature of the people working at Go4theGoal--everything start to finish is fantastic.

I really feel like the discovery of this agency, for us, has been nothing short of a miracle. The look of pure delight and awe on the kid's faces when receiving their IPADS, or IPODS, etc, is truly something to witness. Many of these kids would never have the means to buy these items for themselves so it really is amazing work that the people at Go4theGoal are doing.

The Great!

Go4theGoal is an amazing organization with a passion to help children undergoing treatment not only for Ewing Sarcoma but for other pediatric cancers as well. They are incredibly open and responsive to the needs of the various children's hospitals they support and work hard to fulfill those needs.

Go4theGoal's leadership also has a great understanding for the role of research -- especially in support of those leading the way in transformational breakthroughs.

Anyone working with Beth will be profoundly moved and inspired.

Go 4 the Goal has done so much for our patients at TCI. The Halloween party was such a hit! There was such a lively atmosphere and the kids were squealing with delight. Many of our staff came just to watch the kids having such a good time! Go 4 the Goal helps kids forget about their illnesses.

I am a pediatric oncology social worker at University Medical Center in Tucson, AZ. I cannot express enough what a gift Go4thegoal has been to both our patients and our social work team. I recently commented to the organization that I feel as though we have our very own fairy godmother in this foundation. It seems that whatever we need to better serve our patients and families, Go4thegoal is there to assist. The well being of both our patients and their families have been significantly improved thanks to the kindness and compassion this foundation has shared with us.

The Great!

I work directly with the organization. As a social worker I identify a need amongst our pediatric oncology patients and Go4thegoal meets that need whenever possible. For example they have provided laptop computers and video cameras for our patients. They also provided holiday gifts for all of our patients in active treatment.

Go4the Goal continues to amaze me! They have provided the children and teens at TCI with so much over the past few years; from unbelievably generous Holiday gifts, to weekly and monthly raffle prizes, but the Halloween party that they threw at our hospital this Fall had such a lasting impact on our patients! We even had families join us for the day, who weren't scheduled to be at the hospital. They are still talking about it! They continue to brighten our patient's lives, and focus on the fun and enjoyment of childhood, despite illness.

Where to begin? Go 4 the Goal Foundation has been such a devoted friend to the young patients at Tomorrows Children's Fund who are fighting cancer. The foundation provided us with Mac laptops for patients to use while they are receiving long treatments at the medical center. They hand select wonderful presents to brighten the faces of our children. Their "lottery" for our patients provides one child each week to win a bag filled with goodies and once a month a patient's name is drawn to receive an amazing electronic item. Go 4 the Goal provides both patient and parent with that much needed boost! We LOVE Go 4 the Goal!

This foundation never ceases to amaze me. Each time I contact the foundation requesting assistance for a patient and family, the foundation agrees to help, often going above and beyond to meet the needs of pediatric oncology population. They truly understand the needs of the families and offer support to those who need it the most. The foundation keeps in mind the particular needs of a teenage child and finds a way to bring joy to their lives. Our division is so very grateful for this foundation and all that they do.

As a sarcoma patient at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, I was treated to the day of a lifetime. With my dad, I went to the clinching game of the 2008 World Series to watch my favorite Philadelphia Phillies win the long-awaited championship. After a great dinner in center city, the limo dropped us off for a an amazing experience that I will never forget. To add to all of this, I also received a personalized gift during the winter holidays. Seeing the smiles on the other children's faces when they opened their gifts in clinic definitely brightened everyone's mood. I simply cannot thank this organization enough, and sincerely hope others can help donate in order to increase the effect.

You could not possibly find a group of more visionary leaders or harder working volunteers than Go4thegoal. Everywhere they go they leave smiles on children who suffer from terrible illnesses. They are innovative and proactive and compassionate beyond belief. If you choose them, you will be advancing the cure of pediatric cancers like it could be done in no other organization. Go4thegoal uses more innovativion with less bureaucracy than any other charitable organization I've encountered.
