Charlie's Champions

Our Foundation was formed in 2021 through the inspiration of someone we love whose son was fighting a battle of their own. Charlie Ward was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL) in August 2020, just around the time of his first birthday.

A group of friends and former classmates of Charlie’s father rallied together to provide initial financial and emotional support for the family.

The exposure to Charlie’s battle led this group to see the fight and challenges that so many children and their families were facing and that is when Charlie’s Champions was formed. We knew that no family or child should have to fight alone and it became one of our founding principles that helped shape who we are today.

What drives us forward

Charlie is the epitome of a Champion and through many relapses, he has continued to fight and provide a level of inspiration to this group that became transformative. Charlie relapsed in March of 2023 and is currently fighting his 4th battle with Cancer in less than four years.

Charlie’s Champions Childhood Cancer Foundation exists to provide Hope and Love to these families as they face a battle they didn’t willingly pursue. Our Mission is to help these families with support in many ways. Through the gifts of our generous donors, we are continuing to do just that.

Approximately 1 in 285 children in the U.S. will be diagnosed with cancer before their 20th birthday.
Globally there are more than 300,000 children diagnosed with cancer each year.

Every 3 minutes, somewhere in the world a family hears the devastating words that their child has been diagnosed with cancer.
