The Department of Oncology at St. Christopher's Hospital for Children is thankful for the Ahmad Butler Foundation (ABF) and all it is doing to support our patients and their families, including filling our food pantry during the pandemic and providing each of our patients with a Captain Poodaman care package. ABF is a wonderful organization started by wonderful people who care deeply about children and families impacted by childhood cancer. Thank you, ABF, for all you do!

When a family gets the unfortunate news that there child has cancer. The blow is so devastating you never recover from it. That poor innocent child is dawned with the task of hospital stays, chemo therapy and the unknown. At The Ahmad Butler Foundation, we believe no child should ever fight alone. We give support to the children & their families bye providing whatever they need, to get through the day, the week or the month. Weather it be monetary, groceries, rent or a listening ear. It is my honor to serve these special little ones and their families. It is the best part of me.

I'm proud of my friend Latanya Morrison, Ahmad's mother Cierra Butler, her partners, family and friends for forming The Ahmad Butler Foundation in memory of her grandson Ahmad Butler. She is doing great work by donating care packages to the various Children's Hospitals, the Ronald McDonald House, and families of children past and present in Philadelphia with help and support from family, friends, and various organizations throughout the city. It warms yiur heart to see pics of the children receive them. She also wants each stricken child with cancer in hospitals to be able to have a chrome laptop with a goal to raise $1,000,000 for this. Kudos to the ABF for all you do.
