BRAD COLEMAN CANCER FOUNDATION
June 13, 2014

We have came along ways in four years. Our family assistance program has gained more and more popularity. We get referrals for all of the major children's hospitals throughout Tennessee. We also continue to provide funding to families that have been referred to us by The American Cancer Society. We have provided our testicular awareness program to over 5000 students. We do numerous fund raiser throughout the year to raise funds to support our mission. We are in the process of getting our name out in hopes we can become a nationally recognized charity. I am also proud of the fact that we have accomplished everything that we have done with an all volunteer staff. We have no paid employees so 100% of every dollar raised is put to work helping others. All of our staff work extremely hard and I want to commend each and every one of them.

We are still a work in progress. I guess the one thing that I would like to see happen is for us to become a household name and be the first charity that people thing about when they want to donate. Being an all volunteer organization if we could get more donation. We could spend more time in providing support to the ones that need it and less time on fund raising.

BRAD COLEMAN CANCER FOUNDATION
June 26, 2012

This foundation has made a tremendous difference to many different families who have called upon us for help. We have funded travel and lodging expenses as they seek treatments for their child. We have eased the pain of worrying about how they were going to get the money they needed to travel and a place to stay. We have two families that are traveling to MD Anderson in Houston Texas from Tennessee. And have been told by one of them that they would not know what they would have done if it hadn't been for us. We are making a difference and will continue to do so as long as we are able. We also have developed an educational program that has been placed in 125 schools. This program stresses the importance of self exam for testicular cancer. Early detection is the key to survival. We provide these program free of charge. We are also proud of the fact that all of our Board Members, Officers and Staff Volunteer their time so all proceeds raised goes directly toward doing to foundations work.

How did you learn about this organization?

I was involved in founding this foundation

What is this organization's top short-term priority?

Top proity is to provide funding to families that need it

What is its top priority in the long run?

To raise awareness to testicular cancer nation wide. Breast cancer has been in the spotlight for many years and has saved thousands of lives through early detection and education. My hope is that one day there will be as much attention bought to testicular cancer early detection as there has been for breast cancer. This disease is 95% cereale if caught early. There is no need for someone to succumb to testicular cancer just because it was caught too late. We have to change this!!!
