About The Forever Fierce Foundation

The Forever Fierce Foundation was inspired by Claire Rose Russell. Claire was diagnosed with a bone cancer called Ewing’s Sarcoma at just four years old. During Claire’s grueling treatment, she remained upbeat and positive, earning the Shakespeare quote “though she be but little, she is fierce” as her slogan. Claire is now in remission, and inspires us to be fierce against childhood cancer.

Our mission is to both educate and inspire as many people as possible. By funding research we want to help improve the survival rates of childhood cancer. The Forever Fierce Foundation hopes to accomplish this by raising money to support research labs around the country that are heading up groundbreaking therapy for bone cancer, and soft tissue cancers.

The National Cancer Institute designates less than 4% of their annual 4.9 million dollar annual budget to childhood cancer research. Worldwide, 175,000 children are diagnosed with cancer each year. And in the U.S., more children die of childhood cancer than any other disease—more than AIDS, asthma, cystic fibrosis, congenital anomalies and diabetes combined. -http://www.stbaldricks.org/

The children of the world deserve better than this. We need to stand together and fight for better funding for research. These kids are the future generation, the Forever Fierce Foundation will continue to raise money and directly impact funding for childhood cancer research.
