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.

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.

This foundation is about helping sick children and their families. The idea for it came from a mother and father that experienced the trials of battling childhood cancer with their son. After losing their son, they began to realize how much they had learned that they hadn't known. They realized that much of the needed information was not readily available.They knew how challenging the battle becomes both financially and emotionally. This foundation is about offering that little bit of help that can help ease the financial and emotional stress. Its about educating children so they recognize warning signs. Its about supplying that one piece of information that is so desperately needed.
