ABOUT US

OUR MISSSION

THE ALLIE & FRIENDS FOUNDATION is a charitable health organization that provides a positive atmosphere to fundraise and battle against a pediatric cancer. A&F is committed to helping find a cure for this devastaing disease, and supporting families in need whether it is through education or monetary backing.  A&F also desires to utilize it's platform to increase awareness and advocate for those in need.  A&F partners with other pediatric cancer foundations to co-fund research grants and clinical trials, and educate the public about a disease dramatically lacking in funding.  Less than 5% of the Federal Government’s total funding for cancer research is dedicated to childhood cancers each year, yet kids make up 20% of the population.  Childhood cancer is the leading cause of death by disease in the U.S., and it kills more children per year than cystic fibrosis, muscular dystrophy, asthma, and AIDS combined.  A&F is dedicated to finding a cure for the kids!

OUR STORY

 

The Allie & Friends Golf Classic was founded in 2005 by Scott and Kristin Jewson when their dear friends, Brian and Keri Neff, received devastating news about their two year old daughter's health.  Allie had stage IV neuroblastoma, a pediatric cancer.

 

Over the next two years, Allie courageously battled cancer. She went through chemotherapy, stem cell transplant, isolation, radiation and surgery.  In the end, the cruel disease claimed her life two months before her fourth birthday.

 

Allie is the inspiration behind the golf outing, and the foundation that was created out of it. Today, the Allie & Friends Foundation is more than 500 participants strong in the Allie & Friends Golf Classic, and is hosting it's 3rd Annual Cheers For Charity fundraiser.  Over $1.3 million has been raised over the past 12 years to help beat this devastating disease.

 

The friends and families of the Allie & Friends Foundation have joined together and are determined to raise money and awareness for pediatric cancer research.  Our children are in a desperate situation, with little guarantee that they will survive this disease.  Cancer treatments are scary, painful, long, and full of tears and prayers.  Imagine going through all of these treatments before you can even spell your name.  Help us find a cure for these children!

 

We fight the fight for Allie and her friends.  We hope you hear our pleas for help and join us in the fight against pediatric cancer.
