A MESSAGE FROM The Faris Foundation

Mommy, Cancer is not hard.” Faris D. Virani, Age 6

 

Did you know that childhood cancer is the leading cause of death in children in our country? And despite this stark fact, only 4% of our national cancer budget goes specifically for children with cancer. This is unacceptable.

 

When Faris was diagnosed at the age of 6, with a rare bone cancer, Ewing Sarcoma, he told his family “cancer is not hard.” If a child can say that - then surely the cure can’t be hard. It requires conviction and a community coming together.

 

The Faris Foundation is led by its Chief Angel Officer, Faris D. Virani, whose words guide, inspire, and inform everything we do. Our mission is singular and bold: to bring brighter days and better treatments to children with cancer. Our key program areas are childhood cancer research, creative arts programs in children’s cancer centers, and public awareness and education around childhood cancer.

 

By joining our team, you are showing up for kids with cancer. You are giving hope. And with hope, brighter days are possible.

 

You are going to the finish line for children with cancer and run with a golden heart for the cause.
