In honor of a bright, pretty, little girl who bravely battled against malignant brain tumors, LuciaGirl Pediatric Oncology Foundation (LGPOF) works to:

Ensure adequate research funding specifically for pediatric oncology, encourage more effective drug and treatment development and addresses the needs of childhood cancer patients and their families.

LGPOF plans to empower law makers, healthcare, scientific and business leaders to make decisions that lead to not just statistically (you researchers know what I'm talkin' about), but actual, significant and tangible improvements in the treatment of pediatric oncology.

Let’s leave the baby steps to the babies.

Our Sweet Angel

her wings and is at peace.  Her faith never waivered.

"As soon as I am one of God's angels,
I'll be completely healed."
