The Stand Firm Warrior Foundation

Organization description: The Stand Firm Warrior Foundation is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization dedicated to helping fight childhood cancer.  Our goal is to support pediatric cancer research focused on alternative treatments to chemotherapy and radiation. We further the push for awareness of childhood cancer, and provide assistance for families with children battling cancer. We were formed to keep alive the memory of a life cut too short: BJ Correll. BJ was just 15 years old when he passed away after fighting pre-B cell Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL) for 3 1/2 years. His courageous and positive attitude inspired people across the world who followed his story. This foundation continues in his memory, hoping another child’s life will be saved through funds donated to fight childhood cancer.
