"When you are diagnosed with cancer, your whole family is diagnosed with CANCER."
Devin Duncan (two-time cancer survivor)
Ambassador for The Morgan Frazier Cancer Foundation.
To provide tangible solutions that support the physical, mental, and emotional wellness of families whose child has been diagnosed with CANCER.
CANCER is the #1 cause of death among children in the world.
National Cancer Institute
To act as a lifeline for families by providing direct and immediate resources that offset the non-medical costs associated with treatment.
It’s thought more than 50% of people with cancer are affected by psychosocial distress, which affects the medical, physical, emotional and spiritual well being of their lives.
We focus on the family so the family can focus on the patient.

Be Bold-Go Gold Campaign
Spread Awareness-Grow the Gold
Ribbons send a clear message without saying a single word, which allows them to transcend language barriers and have far-reaching global impacts.
The international awareness symbol for Childhood Cancer is the gold ribbon. Unlike other cancer awareness ribbons, which focus on a singular type of cancer, the gold ribbon is a symbol for all forms of cancer affecting children and adolescents.
The ACCO motto “Go Gold®” was adopted by MFCF as a program in 2017 to describe multiple opportunities for children, families, corporations, and schools to help spread awareness about childhood cancer. There are many ways you can personally support our cause and/or encourage your family, school, or workplace to get involved and join in the fight to beat childhood cancer:
Organize a GO GOLD for Kids with Cancer Event®: each event raises crucial funds to provide information and support materials for children currently fighting cancer. These events also help spread awareness about current childhood cancer issues while creating supportive communities for local families who are dealing with the medical, emotional, and financial consequences of childhood cancer.
Help facilitate the development of a Corporate Partnership to increase the number of products that display the Gold Ribbon (see Become a Partner**hyperlink)
