"We do not need magic to change the world, we carry all the power we need inside ourselves already."
On May 21, 2015, 9 days before her 18th birthday, Brittany Norris was diagnosed with Metastatic Ewing’s Sarcoma, a bone and soft tissue cancer that primarily affects children and young adults. Through countless clinical, day hospital, and inpatient stays Brittany experienced firsthand the lack of support for young adults in an environment that is geared towards young children. Brittany’s Hope Foundation was established to provide comfort, support, and most importantly HOPE for young adults fighting a childhood cancer.
For 663 days, Brittany fought through every horrible thing that cancer threw at her. Yet she fought with courage, determination, strength and most of all HOPE. Please, help us as we carry on Brittany’s legacy by providing HOPE to the warriors fighting childhood cancer.

Our mission is to provide a Token of Hope for young adult warriors (ages 19-25) currently fighting a childhood cancer. We will also supply items for older children and young adults that will offer comfort and hope during clinical, day hospital, and inpatient stays.
