Ronan Thompson was a bright, energetic little boy that always kept his family smiling and laughing. In August of 2010, he was diagnosed with a stage IV Neuroblastoma and fought valiantly or the next 10 months. Ronan's battle with Neuroblastoma ended on May 9, 2011, but his fight will go on. Ronan continues to inspire his family in the way he lived his life full of passion, strength, and courage. He will live forever in their hearts and minds as the most beautiful little boy to ever have touched the earth. The Ronan Thompson Foundation raises funds for research that will find new and innovative ways to treat neuroblastoma, and ultimately, find a cure for this disease. The Foundation wants to create a World Class Neuroblastoma Research and Care Center and we're thrilled to help by contributing 50% of the proceeds from this campaign to this cause.
This campaign is our forth with St. Baldrick's and we're so excited to be supporting such a wonderful organization again. If you've never heard about St. Baldrick's, let us fill you in! This organization raises money for kids cancer research. Kids who are diagnosed with cancer have to be treated differently than adults with the disease. No child should ever have to face cancer and we are so happy to do our part in helping raise funds to help find the cure! The HEART this campaign was created by Grace whose amazing mom is part of a group of called 46 Mommas. This group shaves their heads to raise awareness and funds for kids cancer.

Arizona Cancer Foundation for Children (ACFC) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit foundation created to support Arizona children diagnosed with cancer and their families. The organization spotlights the need to significantly increase clinical research and treatment options for children suffering from cancer. Through a partnership with the Ronald A. Matrciaria Institute of Molecular Medicine at Phoenix Children’s Hospital, ACFC supports developing cancer treatments and therapies that specifically combat pediatric cancer. Chrisie and her husband, Nick Funari, started the foundation after Chrisie’s 5-year-old daughter, Ava, passed away from a three year struggle with Stage Four Neuroblastoma; an aggressive form of pediatric cancer.
