Fighting Leukemia and Growling Along the Way
The people, governance practices, and partners that make the organization tick.
Chris, his family and friends started fundraising for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society's when his son Ryan was diagnosed with ALL PH+ leukemia in November of 2008. The Wilson family and friends started out as a team that raised money annually for the local Leukemia and Lymphoma Society's Light the Night Walk in 2009. While Ryan was going through treatment they met other local families and saw a need in the local community for additional financial support. The Tigerfight Foundation was established and became a non-profit 501 (c) (3) organization in May of 2014. Since that time they have taken applications from health care providers and provided financial assistance to Kern County families who are currently being treated for pediatric blood cancer as well as the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.
Chris is a full time project manager for a commercial construction company. He has built, retail, healthcare, multi-family, hospitality and industrial projects throughout the Western United States. Chris and his family reside in Bakersfield, CA.
