The Benji Watson Cancer Foundation is a non-profit organization inspired by the compassion of young cancer survivor, Benjamin Watson. In 2010, when Ben was diagnosed with pediatric cancer at the age of 14, he was fortunate enough to have his family, friends, and neighbors by his side throughout the battle. However, he recognized that not every patient was as fortunate. And he decided to do something about it.
After going into remission, Ben created The Benji Watson Cancer Foundation to help families affected by pediatric cancer receive the financial support they need to stay afloat during the treatment process. From making a rent payment to providing food or gas cards, the foundation takes care of the little things so families can stay focused on the bigger goal: getting better and going home.
The Benji Watson Cancer Foundation works side-by-side with professionals within the medical community to identify and provide support to families in need.
