Go4theGoal has been amazing! I work as a Child Life Specialist in pediatric oncology and we have been so lucky to be able to work with such an amazing caring group. Go4theGoal recently donated ipads to our unit, which has been so wonderful for our patients. They love them and the ipads keep them occupied while they are inpatient. Thank you for everything!!

A few weeks ago I asked Beth and Tara from G4G for an IPAD for one of our Bone Marrow Transplant patients. Last week the staff was so excited to give this gift to the patient. Each day we try so hard to put a smile on the faces of our patients, but sometimes we are limited with how much we can do. Approximately two years ago, I met Ann, Beth, and Kim from Go4theGoal. This meeting sparked a wonderful relationship and as a result of the kindness of everyone at Go4theGoal, we have been able to put smiles on our patients’ faces. We have given gifts during the holidays, gifts post transplant (their new birthday), install new televisions in each patient’s room, provide MAC laptop to the patients, and last week was another great moment. Being able to give a transplant patient who did not receive a gift during the Christmas holidays an IPAD and a Gift card was so rewarding. She was so thankful, tearful, and happy. Most of our patients do not have the means to enjoy things that we take for granted, so moments like these are priceless. I am so thankful to everyone at Go4theGoal, the support that they have given us at Holtz Children’s Hospital in Miami, is more than we could ever imagine. You are always here for us throughout the year, not only during the holiday season and for that. I just want to say thank you.

Our son was recently diagnosed with relapsed Ewing's Sarcoma, and Go4TheGoal arranged our flights to see an expert in New York and purchased tickets for us. There was no way we could have gone without this help. They were so very kind and helpful!

As a sarcoma patient at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, I was treated to the day of a lifetime. With my dad, I went to the clinching game of the 2008 World Series to watch my favorite Philadelphia Phillies win the long-awaited championship. After a great dinner in center city, the limo dropped us off for a an amazing experience that I will never forget. To add to all of this, I also received a personalized gift during the winter holidays. Seeing the smiles on the other children's faces when they opened their gifts in clinic definitely brightened everyone's mood. I simply cannot thank this organization enough, and sincerely hope others can help donate in order to increase the effect.

You could not possibly find a group of more visionary leaders or harder working volunteers than Go4thegoal. Everywhere they go they leave smiles on children who suffer from terrible illnesses. They are innovative and proactive and compassionate beyond belief. If you choose them, you will be advancing the cure of pediatric cancers like it could be done in no other organization. Go4thegoal uses more innovativion with less bureaucracy than any other charitable organization I've encountered.

Go4theGoal Foundation is an incredible non-profit that is making a big difference in the battle on childhood cancer. The numerous programs they've founded in various Pediatric Hospitals as well as their committment to funding research for a cure for Sarcoma is inspiring. Go4theGoal was there for our 14 year old daughter when she was in the battle of her life with Rhabdomysarcoma. Through their very generous gifts that they donated, she was able to have precious and memorable time playing games with her younger brother and was able to enjoy her favorite music while enduring multiple chemotherapy treatments and hospital stays. Our precious daughter lost her battle. We appreciate the Founders and all the members of Go4theGoal for their endless time and committment to the fight on Childhood cancer. Thank you.
