The Brooke Healey Foundation had a productive 2019! Here are some highlights:
  • Donated over $20,000 to families battling pediatric cancer.

  • Contributed $65,000 towards our funding partnership with CONNECT (Collaborative Network for Neuro-oncology Clinical Trials), a virtual hospital that lifts geographic boundaries for trials in which patients can enroll by offering multiple locations where the trial can be conducted under the guidance of the lead investigator.

  • Gave $25,000 to the DIPG Collaborative, a collection of foundations with the common interest of inspiring research into the cure of DIPG with the belief that through that cure significant advances in other cancer research will be made.  

  • Gave $10,000 to the Children's Brain Tumor Project (CBTP).

  • Awarded $1,400 worth of college scholarships to civically minded graduates of New Providence High School and Madison High School.

  • Helped spearhead the Fairness to Kids with Cancer Act HR4429 legislation to ensure that a fair percentage of federal cancer funds are dedicated to pediatric cancer research.

  • Hosted 'An Evening with Mitch Albom' to launch his new book, Finding Chika, about his experience as a DIPG parent.

  • Promoted Pediatric Cancer Awareness during the month of September with various campaigns including gold shoelaces for local sports teams, stickers on pizza boxes, and lawn signs.  Also participated in the Somerset Patriots Superhero Day- open to kids battling cancer and their families- where co-Presidents Steve & Stefani Healey spoke in front of thousands of attendees.   

  • Received nationwide recognition on the NFL playing field when Michael Badgley of the LA Chargers represented the Brooke Healey Foundation for the ‘My Cause My Cleats’ initiative.

  • Attended the DIPG/DMG Symposium in Sydney, Australia.

  • Held 2 significant fundraisers: Casino Night and Golf Outing. Each successful event garnered record-breaking numbers of attendees and money raised.

  • Delivered hundreds of beauty bags throughout December to moms whose children are currently being treated at Morristown Memorial and Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in NYC, as well as gifts to the nursing staff and handmade cards to the children.


Your donations go directly to help families dealing with pediatric cancer and supporting targeted research. Experts in the field believe that finding a cure for DIPG may lead to a cure for all cancers.
