  • Hugs for Ryan Memorial Fund, “Ryan Zinna left this world at the age of 9 years old on February 23rd, 2015, after an almost 3 year battle with medulloblastoma. ‘It’s so incredibly hard to believe Ryan has been gone for over 5 years now.  He’s in our thoughts every single day and in our hearts forever, our brave sweet boy.  Always ready with a silly joke, he loved to laugh and lived his life with a sense of adventure.  In his brief nine years he touched many lives with his kindness and intrepid spirit.’”
  • Esta Czik’s Birthday Fundraiser, “For my birthday this year, I’m asking for donations to Making Headway Foundation. For those that know my family, you know that this nonprofit is very meaningful for us. This nonprofit provides care, support and funding for pediatric brain tumor patients, their families and their doctors, nurses and caregivers. We feel so fortunate that Aaron is now cancer free for 14 years and thriving. We would like to spread that good fortune. This has been a trying year for everyone and It has been an especially trying year for those needing and providing medical care. I hope you’ll consider contributing as a way to celebrate my birthday and Aaron’s good fortune and to honor those providing medical care. Every little bit will help me reach my goal.”
  • Dean Ziegler’s 10th Birthday, “In honor of Dean’s 10th birthday, please support Making Headway Foundation, a charity near and dear to our hearts. As you all know Dean was diagnosed with a JAP when he was three years old and subsequently a reoccurrence when he was five and he needed treatment. It was during this time that we met Maya and we learned about The Making Headway Foundation, which she co-founded with her husband. Maya was always there to offer a kind word of support for me, snacks, crafts and a clown (which he happened to not be interested in) for Dean.”
  • Abell Family Fundraiser, “Jun was diagnosed with a malignant brain tumor, pineoblastoma when he was 18 months old.  He spent close to a year in the hospital receiving chemotherapy and radiation.  Throughout his treatment and even beyond, Making Headway made this impossible situation a little less impossible through their generosity.  He is now 8 years out of treatment and is enjoying being a soccer-loving 10 year old.”
