FOJ pairs up children and their families battling pediatric brain tumors with college and high school sports teams. The teams give these children love, support and friendship as they fight this devastating disease.
The organization celebrates each day by creating lasting relationships between student-athletes, the child, and their families. This greatly improves the quality of life for children with brain tumors, as well as those who support them.
