SIDES is made up of a group of volunteers working and giving of their time and money to help families suffering from this horrible illness. I watch the difference we make in the lives of these families and only wish we could do more. It is such a wonderful thing SIDES does, trying to help wherever and whenever possible. David Lister is like the Energizer bunny and would do anything to find a cure or at the very least, make a kid smile.

SIDES is amazing and has come to our rescue more that once, without question or hassle. My 4 year old has metastatic retinoblastoma and has been in active treatment for 27 months. I lost my job when FMLA ran out and haven't been able to work since due to the aggressive treatments he has had to go through.
When my son is cancer free, I plan to fundraise and volunteer with this charity.

SIDES is an amazing organization. Being the parent of a child that also has Ewing's Sarcoma, I can tell you firsthand how much good the people at SIDES do. They are tireless in their fundraising with the hopes of finding a cure and helping the children and families afflicted by this horrible disease on the way. I see posts every day of the good SIDES does and how they find a way to put a little good into horrible situations. Keep up the great work!

This nonprofit was developed out of love. I am so proud of the impact that they are having throughout the United States. It has amazed me as I watched it grow from the beginning. Sydney is a former student of mine. She and her father, David, have a passion to help those in need. My family has chosen to forgo Christmas gifts this year in support of SIDES and all the great things they are doing. May God continue to bless the work of their hands as they bring hope to families and their children struggling with cancer.

This is an amazing organization!!!! My 2.5 year old battled Ewings Sarcoma! They may be from Florida, but they were a lifeline for a mom in Texas!

I have watched SIDES over the years via social media and attended some of their functions. What they do is like no other organization I have ever seen and they are all true angels. They give of their time, not one person takes a salary, they have no overhead, and all their funds absolutely go to children/families suffering from this awful disease. They deliver toys, send gifts, spread awareness, and never ever give up.

I am a student and have volunteered at many events with SIDES. I have worked at their golf tournament several times and even got to help deliver toys to the kids treating in the hospital. I am so glad they give me the opportunity to help and I love seeing the kids smile. This is a great organization and they all have hearts of gold.

I have volunteered with SIDES for over 4 years and the experience is priceless. To see the smiles on the children's faces and the appreciation from the parents, even for one minute to see them forget the living hell they are going through, makes it all worth it. The Board of SIDES is the most giving, selfless, loving, caring group of people I have ever known and it is an honor to work with them.

SIDES does a tremendous job of promoting awareness and the need for more funding to find cures for Ewing's Sarcoma. The Bobblehead is an awesome way to spread the word.

I received a bobble head doll from SIDES while I was going through treatment for Ewing's Sarcoma. Bald IS beautiful (like the doll says) and they're bringing smiles to cancer patients everywhere.

Sides is an incredible help to our grandson who was diagnosed with Ewings on his 10th birthday. David Lister always lifts the children "up". I enjoy his Facebook postings every day and say a prayer for each child he lists. Sydney has been very helpful with Charles. I think seeing defeat this Demon, Ewings, gives other children hope. I love to see her smiling face and it helps me to stay positive as a grandmother to know that my grandson can beat it too! I love the Sydney Bobblehead! Thank you SIDES!!!!

If we can make Charles smile for even a day it is all worthwhile. These warriors are the true heroes.

This foundation was started two months after my daughter was diagnosed with Ewing's Sarcoma. I took this foundation over after she finished her last round of treatment. All involved are volunteers. Every dollar raised goes to fund research, spread awareness but most importantly assist families in need but reaching out to these truly amazing, inspirational children battling this disease.
