Our mission is to improve the quality of life for children
and their families with pediatric brain tumors and other
childhood cancers while spreading awareness about these
diseases.

How do we do this? FoJ pairs children and their families
battling pediatric brain tumors and other childhood
cancers with college and high school sports teams, clubs and community groups. 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.

Adopt a Child Program

The Adopt-A-Child Program is designed for children battling a pediatric brain tumor or another form of childhood cancer. We pair the child with a high school or college sports team or club as an honorary team member. The team provides love, support and friendship throughout the relationship.

Safe on the Sidelines for Siblings Program

Similar to the Adopt-A-Child Program, the Safe on the Sidelines Program is designed for a sibling(s) of a child with a pediatric brain tumor or another form of childhood cancer. An entire family is affected when a child is diagnosed with cancer. A healthy brother or a sister often feels scared and alone. This program allows for the siblings to have their own team to feel special and supported.

Guardian Angel Program

The Guardian Angel Program is designed for a child and family who are in need of support throughout various stages of their cancer journey. Our “Guardian Angels” send messages of compassion, support and encouragement to children and their families battling cancer.  You can sign up to become an angel by sending us a request.
