Addi's Faith Foundation

About This Organization

Addi’s Faith Foundation was founded in 2007 in honor of Addison Faith Bender, a precious little girl who died from a brain tumor just  a few weeks shy of her second birthday.  After learning the devastating realities of childhood cancer, Addi's parents, Tony & Amber, vowed to make a change. 

Less than 4% of funding is directed towards childhood cancer research and that is simply not enough to make significant progress.  Here at AFF, we know that in order to develop safer and more effective treatments  we need to step up and fund this critical research.  That's why we have committed $1.5 million to MD Anderson Cancer Center for their work in pediatric brain tumors.

We also understand the struggle a family faces when their child is diagnosed with cancer. So often, a parent will need to quit their job in order to care for their child. Income is reduced during  a time when bills are increased. This creates a lot of financial worries and additional  stress.  Addi's Faith Foundation is ultimately seeking a cure, but until that day comes, it is our pleasure to assist as many families as possible.  By providing financial assistance, we can alleviate some of the stress to that parents can focus on helping their child get better.

The fight against childhood cancer will not be won alone.   When everyone joins together, each person doing what they can, we will win. We KNOW there is a cure out there...TOGETHER, we will find it!
