The Gardner Marks Foundation is a nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting families fighting pediatric / adolescent cancer.
While the specter of losing the battle remains the greatest peril, adolescents fighting pediatric cancer and their families also face countless additional hardships. These challenges can range from financial and logistical, to comfort and mental health-related. Many of these families do not have the resources to confront these difficulties while also leading the struggle to save their child's life.
Team G - The Gardner Marks Foundation provides assets and means for families to help manage these incremental difficulties, allowing the family's focus and energy to remain on their fight for their child’s life.
Funds raised by The Gardner Marks Foundation are provided to families being served at Maria Fareri Children’s Hospital in Valhalla, NY, where Gardner was treated. The Foundation works with the hospital’s Family Resource Center in providing financial support.
