Go 4 the Goal supports, inspires, and consistently makes a difference in the lives of so many children with cancer and their families. Go 4 the Goal recently sponsored a survivor reunion for our pediatric bone marrow transplant patients and their families. The day was filled with food, music, and activities to celebrate the accomplishments of these incredible children and families. The day was filled with laughter, hope, and heartfelt joy. It was a magical day that would not have been possible without Go 4 the Goal. Thank you for all you do!!!

I have been a pediatric social worker for over 25 years, specializing in pediatric oncology for almost 15 years. I received a phone call from the founder, Beth about 2 years ago. She came to meet me and explained how they could help some of the families I work with. She was so genuine and kind.

Well first of all, when a request is placed such as getting a computer...she or her husband deliver it to me right away...so the kids can start using it!!! Go 4the Goal understands the importance of kids communicating with their friends, school, and family. Also, they give out many tickets to go to the Union games-soccer-. Kids get an opportunity to go with their friends...and just be a normal kid.. even if it is for a few hours!!!. Go4 the Goal also makes sure I have I-touch Ipods...which I give out to the kids that go for radiation treatments, teenagers,...listening to their music makes a tough situation a bit easier. I also can't forget the surprise gift cards...when a family is having a rough day...I am able to give them a gift card so that they know someone has thought about them. I am grateful that GO4the Goal found me.....As I write this review I have a bright smile on my face as I am truly grateful for them and the ease in asking them for help!!!!

Many ways!!!!! The Season holidays...Bags filled with Ipods, gift cards-visa, itunes A Huge tote box filled with toys(for all ages) so that when kids come to visit me in my office they pick out a prize(after chemo, transfusions, or a rough day when kids just want to talk about how friends aren't understanding, hair falling out, feeling alone Computers to keep up with school work, friends Cameras so that they can take pictures helps with scrapbooking --as they do want to look back

I am a child life specialist, working with hem/onc patients. There's a general sentiment among our staff that go4thegoal stands for doing things beyond our expectations. We keep getting wowed at the parties, the special gifts and how every detail is thought of with such consideration. I have a patient who became blind as a result of her treatment and wanted a guitar for her birthday. As soon as Go4thegoal heard about this, they arranged for a guitar, in her favorite color and free lessons. Without ever meeting the patient, they shared our passion to help her and went about fulfilling her wish beyond her dreams!

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.

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.

I wouldn't change a thing, they are truly a gift to us.

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.
