Helping Kids with Cancer, One Hug at a Time.™
Thank you for visiting the Hugs for Brady Foundation. The Hugs for Brady Foundation was established to help children battling cancer and assist in research to ultimately find a cure for pediatric cancer. We are a 501 (c) (3) nonprofit corporation. All donations are 100% tax-deductible (Tax ID# 27-3921673). Thank you for supporting our cause, for volunteering, and for donating to help pediatric cancer.
The loss of a child to cancer is one of the worst tragedies a family can face, and we know that pain. Sherrie and Michael Wells started the Hugs for Brady Foundation in 2009, shortly after their 13 month old son, Brady Michael, was diagnosed with Non-Differentiated Acute Leukemia, a very rare form of leukemia. In 2010, Brady passed away at 23 months old, after he had bravely battled the disease for ten months.
Our goal is simple, to help in any and every way possible to ease the pain of the children and their families who are battling pediatric cancer. Hugs for Brady pledges that every dollar donated will be spent in the pursuit to help find a cure for pediatric cancer. This past year Hugs for Brady passed the two million dollar milestone in terms of dollars raised to help kids with cancer. Let’s keep the momentum going! Read more HERE.
Every year, over 13,500 children are diagnosed with cancer in the US. We started the Hugs for Brady Foundation to help end pediatric cancer for good.
