Be The Rainbow for families facing Pediatric Cancer

Be The Rainbow Foundation was founded by our family who fought alongside our youngest daughter, Charlotte, deep in the trenches of pediatric cancer, not once, but twice. At just 2 years old, Charlotte was diagnosed with Stage IV Neuroblastoma, a pediatric cancer of the peripheral nervous system. Our sweet toddler, who was usually full of life, suddenly became lethargic and anemic with abdominal pain. After many weeks of visiting her pediatrician, Charlotte was admitted to the hospital where a large abdominal tumor was found. It had metastasized into her bone marrow. In a blink, our baby girl was facing stage IV cancer. We were thrust into a world of helping our daughter fight for her life while also trying to prioritize keeping our family together and intact. We were surrounded by a wonderfully supportive village of family and friends, and also received help from many incredible organizations along the way. Every ounce of support and kindness carried us along this journey towards healing Charlotte. We leaned into our faith and believed God had a bigger plan than we could have ever imagined. We knew one day we wanted to help other families who were also going through the unimaginable, but we wanted and needed Charlotte to be a part of it.

So after 5 years of battling cancer, including a devastating relapse just weeks before she started Kindergarten, Charlotte has now successfully finished all treatment with clear scans! Although she will still be monitored closely for reoccurrence and late term effects from treatment, our family is in the position we had hoped and fought for! We are finally able to be on the other side of all the receiving and so we created Be The Rainbow Foundation, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, offering families facing pediatric cancer support during treatment, recovery, and beyond. Be The Rainbow Foundation will partner with families and family support organizations to help in any way we are able, filling in any gaps that may exist as they battle childhood cancer.

Although Charlotte’s story is still being written, Be The Rainbow Foundation was created WITH her, and in honor of her and all children and families facing a pediatric cancer diagnosis. Thank you for your generous donations and for helping to be the rainbow for families facing childhood cancer. We look forward to sharing the impact you have helped us make as we work towards helping families fight pediatric cancer, together.
