Desi Strong Foundation
- Non-Profit Organizations & Charities
The Desi Strong Foundation shines a light on pediatric cancer through awareness, patient and family support, and raising funds for a cure.
Believing in Desi was easy, Desi truly made our jobs as parents easy even when she had cancer. Early on in her diagnosis we caught a glimpse of her patient file at the hospital and they described her as stoic- she never complained. Desi literally danced through high-dose chemotherapy treatments that had names like ICE, and The Kitchen Sink.
Staying hopeful and having faith during her treatments was the hardest thing we have ever had to do. It was very tough to face the realities of cancer, and to have the discussions that we had with her doctors. We learned so much from Desi’s journey. Everything we learned throughout her time fighting cancer has prepared us for the next chapter in Desi’s story.
Desi’s fight is over, but at this very moment there is a child and a family finding out that their world is forever changed; that child is going have to fight for their life. We want to help these families! We want to help contribute to the funds the hospitals need to conduct their research. We were given so much love and support from around the world, and now we want to give it back!
We are very excited about the present, and the future of The Desi Strong Foundation. We are certain that Desi was chosen to inspire and bring people together, and that is the essence and purpose of The Desi Strong Foundation. Thank you for taking the time to think of Desi and what you might be able to contribute to assist families and hospitals in Desi’s name
