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.

Go4theGoal Foundation is an incredible non-profit that is making a big difference in the battle on childhood cancer. The numerous programs they've founded in various Pediatric Hospitals as well as their committment to funding research for a cure for Sarcoma is inspiring. Go4theGoal was there for our 14 year old daughter when she was in the battle of her life with Rhabdomysarcoma. Through their very generous gifts that they donated, she was able to have precious and memorable time playing games with her younger brother and was able to enjoy her favorite music while enduring multiple chemotherapy treatments and hospital stays. Our precious daughter lost her battle. We appreciate the Founders and all the members of Go4theGoal for their endless time and committment to the fight on Childhood cancer. Thank you.

I have worked closely with this foundation since its inception and am amazed with the committment of the family and friends to help children with cancer and their challenge to help fund research of Ewing's Sarcoma. We will help find a cure for this awful disease. I have delivered holiday gift baskets to hospitals and to see the look on the children's faces is so rewarding!

Go4TheGoal is a seminal organization demonstrating leadership in the field of helping children and families with cancer. Through the sponsorship of Dr Jeffrey toretsky at georgetown university in developing novel therapies for the cure of Ewing's sarcoma, this organization has developed beyond the critical role of social giving. It has developed into a charity that is proactively trying to better the world for children with cancer through collaboration with academia, industry and nonprofits to foster intelligent and novel approaches to finding a cure.

people, process and development of potential products as well as the immediate social goal of giving to those in need

There is nothing that could have improved my experience to date.

insufficient funding for medical research

One thing I'd also say is that...

this organization would benefit directly from more sponsorship from those NOT affected by Cancer. Charity and improving this world clearly depends on people who dont have a need to develop the meeting of those in NEED
