Like a horse in a race, the Forever Captain Poodaman: The Ahmad Butler Foundation is coming out of the gates fast and making strides. They are the best teammate a family can have when they need the support to keep going . I am Delco Spider-Man and I’ve been fortunate to work with the foundation on a few occasion. We both have th goal for supporting the families and children who are going through tough times. A child just wants to be a child, so we show them the love they need. Childhood cancer only gets minimal attention by the higher ups, so a foundation such as the Forever Captain Poodaman: Ahmad Butler Foundation is needed. I’ll fly with Captain Poodaman anytime!

Forever Captain Poodaman, The Ahmad Butler Foundation are amazing pillars of the community. This foundation continuously goes above and beyond to bring joy two children battling cancer. I see children smiling from ear to ear and forgetting that they are facing obstacles. I have attend it several events with Forever Captain Poodaman, foundation and each time I see the children are getting that they are in pain. Cheater and Captain Poodaman are the best dancers I have ever seen. This is one of the most heartfelt Non-for-Profits organizations.

The Ahmad Butler Foundation is a wonderful organization that supports children battling cancer and improves the quality of their life. Through donations ABF is able to provide a digital learning program to children, provide care packages to children in the hospital and also has virtual and in person events to meet the needs of the children and their families in this most difficult time. I am honored to be a part of this remarkable organization.

The leader of this non-profit is untiring! In turn her energy is contagious. As a volunteer under her guidance, I can speak from experience. Once an idea is born and the goal is established, it is not abandoned but achieved. The goal is always to make the life of the child and the family more positive. Sometimes a child may need a pair of sneakers. Other times it might be a night out for the family such as going to a sports game or watching a movie. It is a time for the family to feel whole despite hardship. Our leader's drive is undaunting. She spends hours on the phone asking for support from organizations, businesses and private individuals. The profits are always passed on to the families devasted by the diagnosis of childhood cancer. There is no better nonprofit out there because it is run on "love".

They are amazing, caring and incredibly thoughtful. We found out about them this summer. My son was diagnosed with CML almost 2 years ago and found them this year. Tanya is one of the sweetest people around. She goes above and beyond . They do amazing work. I’m glad they are part of our family now.

I found a foundation, Forever Captain Poodaman The Ahmad Butler Foundation, that I truly know and believe that they are caring, supportive and doing the absolute best to give happiness to children and families with cancer. You would not believe they pulled off a Zoom charity event, in the hype of the pandemic, that was awesome. The Zoom consisted of children in the hospital, friends, family and others. Just to see the faces of the children, brought a huge smile to my face and warmed my heart. Tanya Morrison and her volunteer staff are awesome and deserve recognition and support. I am praying and hoping this review let others know, what a great foundation to donate to and work with.

A lot of organizations out there that children and their families dealing with complex medical conditions with respect. Forever Captain Pooderman goes beyond that and treats them like family. Each child is made to feel like a superhero. Ahmad Butler was a hero and the work they are doing in his name is a true honor. I truly appreciate the love they have shown to Benjamin and even more, the acceptance.

The Ahmad Butler Foundation honored Children battling cancer on their National Day with a virtual awards ceremony (every Child received a metal of honor) followed by a silly hat virtual pizza party for Children hospitalized at CHOP, St Christopher's Hospital for Children, Shriners, and the Ronald McDonald House. Over 300 Pooday boxes were delivered to Children hospitalized in the above mentioned hospitals prior to Pooday. The boxes were filled with snacks beverages, silly hats, a metal for the Pooday honoree, and interactive game board so the Children and their families could participate in Pooday virtually.

ABF Volunteers along with The Mummers String Band, Swoop The Eagles Mascot , Medical staff, Captain Poodaman & The Cheetah (ABF's mascot) all wore silly hats as we celebrated these brave and courageous Children battling cancer. Local pizzerias donated over 300 pizzas to the hospitals for Children with cancer. What an amazing day, what an amazing celebration, what an AMAZING foundation to be a part of honoring Children that are fighting for their lives! Happy Pooday!

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.
