Their Challenge Is Life....

Volunteers Dedicated to Young People with
Cancer and Serious Blood Diseases

Mission

Cancer is not only isolated to adults but has devastating effects on our future generations by striking and stamping out the precious lives of infants, children and teenagers.

Establish a Complementary Alternative Medical Program for the treatment of young victims with cancer and serious blood diseases. The unique program will be the ONLY one-of-its-kind in the Country & FREE OF CHARGE.

Constant medical supervision, alternative therapy and care of the highest quality will be provided through the dedicated efforts of skilled Pediatric Oncologist and Nurses. In addition, will serve as the future medical support program for the planned, private residential housing facility to orphaned youngsters with cancerous diseases which will permit them the opportunity to live in a loving family surrounding with pride and dignity. A PLACE CALLED HOME.

We believe well-placed support dollars, special care and environment can save the lives of infants, children and teenagers.

The Foundation's success is attributed to World Class Sports Champions, Celebrities, loyal volunteers and supporters, all united by our worthy commitment to win the battle against our common enemy cancerous diseases afflicting our youth.

The starting point of all worthy achievements is strong desire, adoption of definite purpose and removal of the word IMPOSSIBLE.
