About Alexa's Friends Fund
Cancer Won't Win / Fight Song
To spread awareness and support for childhood cancer. To be able to raise money to aid hospitals in their research towards finding a cure. To give back to organizations benefiting children battling cancer. To help improve the quality of life for patients and families during their time of need.
Life Before Cancer
Raising awareness used to be a nonexistent part of our founder's life. It wasn't until her daughter was diagnosed with cancer that she took a stand and looked deeper into the disease. Under her leadership, we have become a team driven by a passion to inform others about childhood cancer and raise funds to benefit young patients. We are committed to helping as many children as we can.
Why We Soldier On
Childhood cancer is the leading cause of death by disease in kids under 15. Research remains under funded. In fact, less than 4% of the National Cancer Institute™'s budget is allocated for its research. This is simply unacceptable. Through our valiant efforts, we hope to make a difference as we continue to boost research funds and other related projects. All we can do now is fight alongside our brave children and keep fighting until we find a cure.
