Mission Statement

Friends For Steven is a non-profit, volunteer organization raising money and awareness in the battle against the pediatric cancer known as neuroblastoma.

Description

Our group was formed in 1997, in honor of our namesake, Steven Newkirk who was diagnosed with neuroblastoma at age 5. Friends For Steven supports research to help all children and their families struggling against this terrible disease. Sadly, like most children diagnosed with aggressive neuroblastoma, Steven lost his courageous battle 2 1/2 years after his diagnosis. It is in his memory and to honor all children fighting for survival against this disease that we continue our work. Our efforts directly support ongoing research into new treatments and a better understanding of neuroblastoma. We also strive to increase public awareness and most importantly, honor the courage and spirit of all afflicted children and their families.
