At Ian’s Friends Foundation, we talk a lot about survivors and positivity especially in the face of insurmountable obstacles. Right now as we take on the obstacle of Covid-19, we are focusing on our entire community to ensure that there are many survivors. We do this united, just as we are united in our belief that IFF will one day find a cure for pediatric brain tumors. Perhaps one positive that we can take from our current situation is how we have all come together regardless of backgrounds and beliefs. We see a global community working together to conquer and beat this virus, ensuring that we don’t just survive, but thrive!
It is not so different from what our mission is at Ian’s Friends Foundation. We strive to bring together the best and brightest to find a cure.
As an update, over the past few weeks many of our labs have temporarily slowed down, even though pediatric brain cancer has not. During these challenging times, we will do our absolute best to keep the research moving forward. Our hearts have been touched and our spirits lifted by those of you in the past few weeks who have gifted us with generous donations to ensure our research continues- Thank You!
For those families whom, amongst everything else, have a child battling with a brain tumor diagnosis, we are here for you, forever and always. Our family and our foundation are always just a phone call or email away.
To our doctors and researchers, our donors, our strong survivors and their families, and the community as a whole: please know that we love you, we are truly grateful for you, and we will get through this as a community by working together and leaning on each other.
Please stay healthy and please stay home.
Until There’s a Cure.
The Board of Ian’s Friends Foundation
