What have and haven't they accomplished so far?

Our goal is to remain 100% volunteer led in our efforts to help as many children fighting cancer as possible throughout the US and abroad while consistently spreading awareness leading to advocacy and action on behalf of all kids with cancer.

We encourage our volunteer network to remain closely involved in the direct impact of children fighting cancer through our hand crafted head wear project, Brooke's Blossoms and Buddies which leads to financial contributions and a growing global network. We have found that the social media is a great platform to help our network grow and remain interactive.

We are capable of achieving our goal of helping every child with cancer worldwide and we believe we will achieve this over time. In addition to our stand alone efforts, our foundation belongs to several local, national and international consortiums to consolidate and streamline our efforts in the war against childhood cancer which remains the #1 disease killer of children.

The best indicator of success for our efforts is the feedback we receive from patients, hospitals, hospitality houses and pediatric oncology research professionals who have given outstanding testimonials of positive impact.

Each year, as Brooke herself has remained under critical cancer care for her stage IV cancer, our grassroots efforts have continued to grow and expand and we attribute this progress to the dedication and tenacity of our incredible volunteers.
