About BMF page



















 

The Brian Morden Foundation was created to honor Brian, a courageous 19 year old, who battled Ewing's Sarcoma for more than two years. He lost the battle on February 15, 2003, but his family, friends, and many others who only knew Brian by reputation have vowed to continue the fight against this horrible disease.

The foundation has three goals:

  • Fund Ewing's Sarcoma and childhood cancer research.
  • Support patients, family, and staff of pediatric oncology units*
  • Provide funding for "Brian Morden Memorial" higher education scholarships

Grant Funds Research on the Nrf2 Pathway in Ewing's Sarcoma

The Brian Morden Foundation (BMF) is delighted to announce another partnership with the Liddy Shriver Sarcoma Initiative (LSSI). Along with the Wendy Walk and the Alan B. Slifka Foundation, the BMF and LSSI will fund a $100,000 grant for Ewing's sarcoma research at Johns Hopkins University. In the study, investigators aim to discover how a gene called Nrf2 helps make Ewing's sarcoma cells resistant to chemotherapy. Then they plan to interfere with the gene's function in the hopes of learning how to improve treatment response in patients.

    You will be helping to fight back against childhood cancer.
  • Adopt "Issy" to send to a childhood cancer patient, give to a loved one, or keep for yourself.

  • Help Issy spread the word about the need for childhood cancer research!
  • Support the BMF through the purchase of an ornament or other merchandise

*Brian was lovingly cared for at Children's Hospital in Pittsburgh, the initial focus of the second BMF goal. We still plan to contribute in important ways to the oncology unit there, however, we have expanded our outreach with Brian Baskets and "Issy" bears, sending them to other pediatric cancer patients especially to those in the Altoona Area, Janet Weis Children's Hospital in Geisinger, Penn State Children's Hospital in Hershey, and Children's Hospital of Philadelphia where some of our area children are being treated. We have also tried to brighten up the day for some children from the Ewing's Sarcoma list serv. If you know a child with cancer who could use a "pick-me-up," please contact us at fdj@brianmordenfoundation.org. We hope to be able to help as many pediatric oncology patients as possible.
