SHOULDN'T 

HURT

Founded in Honor of Ian Besner

Our organization was founded in honor of a curious, guitar-playing, baseball-loving young boy whose life was taken far too soon. Ian was diagnosed with Leukemia when he was only 10 years old. The aggressive regimen of chemotherapy and radiation that he underwent destroyed his immune system. Left defenseless to common illnesses, Ian died just six months after his diagnosis. While he was sick, he often asked why the cure had to hurt so much. This foundation was created to prevent another child from ever having to ask that question again.

Childhood Cancer

The average child who is stolen by cancer will miss 71 birthday celebrations and, for the survivors, almost all will face lifelong side-effects from their treatment. Learn more and raise awareness with us.
