Our Mission

nyfd colinOur mission is to improve the quality of life for children and their families who are battling pediatric brain tumors and to raise awareness about this insidious disease.

How do we do this? FoJ pairs up children and their families battling pediatric brain tumors with college and high school sports teams. The teams give these children love, support and friendship as they fight this devastating disease. We celebrate each day by creating lasting relationships between student athletes, the child, and their families. This greatly improves the quality of life for children with brain tumors, as well as those who support them.
