Be Brave

"To never give up and to know that you don't have a limit to how hard you can try." - Tucker S. Arnold, 2011

Tucker Arnold Foundation is a non profit organization created in the memory of Tucker Scott Arnold who was diagnosed with a rare form of Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia with a T(17:19) genetic translocation on March 26th 2010.  He braved 11 months of treatment with courage and grace. 

Tucker looked at life with a generous heart. He wanted to help people be happy and ease their worries. He wanted to share what he had with those around him because lifting their spirits lifted his. His generousity, loving kindness, bravery and joyful spirit will live on through the work of his foundation.

Tucker's Toybox was his idea to bring toys to children in cancer treatment. Giving each child a chance to escape the stressfulness of treatment thru the enjoyment and simple pleasures of play.

When a child is diagnosed with cancer they are yanked out of the playground and thrusted into a hospital room.  Tucker Arnold Foundation strives to assist and enhance the lives of families who are facing this courageous battle with childhood cancer as we raise awareness and funds for researching this devastating diagnosis.

Tucker's Toybox celebrates birthdays with children in cancer treatment or any critical illness that requires chemotherapy &/or radiation treatment by sending them a birthday gift box that was specifically chosen for them based on their likes, interests and favorite things.  We work closely with the family through their hospital social worker or child life specialist to create the perfect gift to celebrate their special day! 

Tucker Arnold Foundation also support vital research of rare pediatric leukemia, the most common diagnosed cancer in children. Although pediatric leukemia has nearly a 90% survival rate we are focusing on the 10% that are unable to survive treatment due to the therapy resistant mutations in the leukemia.  Our goal is that all children survive leukemia. We have chosen to support Dr. Chang of Oregon Health Science University who's research is working to under stand the mechanisms that cause this resistance.  in 2013 we donated $10,000 towards his efforts and strive to continue that donation yearly.
