• Criss Angel: His passion for pediatric cancer research has intensified following the diagnosis of his 2-year-old son with leukemia.
• Dr. Raphael Rousseau: Leader of development or the Pediatric Oncology Drug Development Team at Genentech, Dr. Rousseau has dedicated his career to focusing on hard-to-treat pediatric cancers.
• Gavin, Owen, Quinn and Ethan Morrison: Since learning of TRF in 2014, this family has demonstrated dedication to raising funds and awareness through school and church groups.
• Hyundai Hope on Wheels: This organization funds innovative research and creates awareness, funding more than $115 million in pediatric cancer research in the U.S.
Founded in 2013 by GRAMMY Award-winning band Imagine Dragons and the Robinson family, TRF’s mission is to strengthen families financially and emotionally as they cope with the tragedy of a pediatric cancer diagnosis by providing hope, information, and relief through financial services, caring volunteers, and monetary grants. The TRF is a 501c3 non-profit organization.
