Helping Children with Cancer

The Matthew Fetzer Foundation 501 c-3 non-profit is dedicated to helping Children with Cancer & their families.
We provide much needed financial support to  families with Childen battling Cancer.

Everyone knows it's NO fun being sick or being in the Hospital...but with your help we can make it a little better for these Children with Cancer.

We can tell you this from 1st hand experience because Matthew is our son and we were one of  'those' families.
Matthew, 10 years old, passed April 7, 2005 after a long 7 year battle with Cancer and this was his wish to help Children with Cancer.

We started the MATTHEW FETZER FOUNDATION in honor of our son, Matthew

Matthew spent much of his young life in the Hospital receiving Chemotherapy Treatment, and eventually a Bone Marrow Transplant.  Through it all, he always kept a positive and upbeat attitude.  It was Matthew’s wish to help Children with Cancer.  He would often tell us when he was better; he was going to start a ‘TOY DRIVE’.
Matthew never got the opportunity to fulfill his wish.

In his honor, we are working towards his goal.

Over the past 12 years, the MATTHEW FETZER FOUNDATION has grown!  We now distribute toys; host parties, provide financial & emotional support to children with cancer, and their families.
We also make sure the siblings of cancer patients are included,  because Cancer affects the entire family.

Your donation will benifit a child battling cancer and will also provide much needed parties in the Hospital.

The Matthew Fetzer Foundation is 501-c3 non-profit and donations are 100% TAX DEDUCTIBLE.

Thank you for your support and for helping Matthew's wish come true.
