A Pediatric Cancer Foundation (1).png

"In February 2019, our world was shattered. We heard the words "Diffuse Midline Glioma" and were told our previously healthy 8 year old daughter had 9 months to live."

The summer Olivia was fighting her incurable cancer she organized her first fundraiser and Liv like a Unicorn was born. She raised over $10,000 to help fund the clinical trial she was a part of. Read that again: she had to organize a fundraiser to help fund the medication that we hoped would slow down the growth of her cancer.

 

All of this started with a child's simple dream: kids deserved better. They deserved to live. 

 

Explore the many ways that we support the pediatric cancer community and find ways to join us. May you always #bethegood and Liv Like A Unicorn.

The inspiration for our Unicorn Box program started in 2019 while Liv was going through treatment. Every Thursday night would be chemo night, so every Thursday morning she would wake up dreading the day. That was until a friend started to drop little packages on our doorstep every Thursday morning. The narrative started to switch from Liv dreading Thursdays to being excited to see what treat was left for her.

We wanted to do the same for every child going through pediatric cancer treatment.

Financial Assistance

When Liv founded Liv Like A Unicorn in 2019, the #1 thing she wanted to do was  make a difference for kids with cancer. In honor of her wish,  we are proud to have developed our Financial Assistance Program. We offer financial assistance to qualifying families in the tri-state area who have had the devastating diagnosis of pediatric cancer. We believe that a family's only worry should be caring for their sick child, not how they are going to pay for their bills.

Research Grants

"Pediatric brain tumors are now the leading cause of death by disease in children. The prognosis for patients with DIPG/DMG is very poor, with most studies indicating a median survival of less than 1 year from diagnosis." Our foundation knows that real change will come from research. To date we have granted over $500,000 in grants to top institutions across the country including: Dr. Nicholas Vitanza of Seattle Children's, Dr. Jessica Foster of The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, and more.
