How to Help
You can help save a child's life
It's a fact: Childhood cancer research still gets the least amount of funding, even though cancer is the #1 disease-related cause of death in children! Each month, 1,100 children are diagnosed with cancer in the US alone.

Your help is urgently needed. A donation to the Brandon's Goal Foundation goes directly to helping the kids and families battling cancer, as well as cutting-edge research, and hospice care. Please act today:

Start a fundraiser - it's easy!

Here's a great example of an 8-year old making it happen! Last year, BGF did a fundraiser at 8-year old Sydney Parker's school. She was so moved that she went home and told her dad she wanted to do more. Through connections, this led to an awesome benefit concert at by the 80's cover band Platinum Spandex at the Seattle Hard Rock Cafe! The Hard Rock waived the bands fee and donated all door admissions back to BGF.

What businesses or organizations are you involved with? Ask them if they can help. It can by anything from simply putting up a donation box to hosting an event... we will help make it happen. Contact us for help.
