Grayson was a cancer warrior that we provided a Toys“R”Us shopping spree to in 2017. Unfortunately, Grayson earned a pair of angel wings shortly after the event. In the loss of their son, Kevin & April showed true STRENGTH by organizing an amazing fundraising effort called “Grayson’s Stocking”. They received an outpouring of support; receiving toys, gift cards and cash donations. Kevin and April hand delivered the toys to the Children's Hospital Of Michigan in Detroit, which is where Grayson was treated.
We are honored to announce that the Foundation for Strength will be adding “Grayson’s Stocking” as one of our five core funds!
Over the weekend we held our first annual Charity Ball. Those who attended learned about WHO we are through some very powerful speeches.
We heard from our founding board member, Cory Allen, speak to his story about losing his cousin to Sarcoma and then his battle through Ewing’ Sarcoma which started only 3 weeks after his cousins passing.
Our guest speaker, Alex Berlin, delivered an inspiring speech about his ongoing battle with Ewing’s. Alex is paving the way for so many others!
Finally, the father who lost his son to Sarcoma, Dougie Johnston, provided a beautiful grace before dinner.
What an amazing first event!
We want to thank everyone who attended and donated to the first ever Foundation for Strength Charity Ball.
For those that did attend, we will post a link for you to access all photos from the event.
Please look out for the exciting upcoming events!
A note from our board member Aaron, after hand delivering the custom designed urn made for warrior Grayon, last week. "Today, I was able to give Grayson's parents a gift that will be with them forever, in honor of #Foundationforstrength. When we heard what they were looking for, we wanted to help. This would have never been possible without the help of Curt Russell getting us the urn and Kevin Burdick's artistic
skills!!! You guys are awesome!
Good choice mom and dad! I'm sure Grayson will love this. Rest easy little buddy..."
The new Strength Depositions Podcast was just released. This week's

Detroit City Football Club joined us in our vist with cancer warrior Ian at the DMC today! Ian is a huge soccer fan and was giving us "DCFC" chants in the hospital room. The team gave Ian a signed shirt and soccer ball. Ian gave them inspiration to beat AA in their playoff game tonight!!
We also knew Ian loved Chase from Paw Patrol so we made sure to load him up with Chase gifts for his long hospital stays.
Thank you to everyone for your continued donations!

What an amazing morning!
We met cancer warrior Grayson and took him for a Toys R Us shopping spree. He had help from Geoffrey the Giraffe and his favorite, The Power Rangers!!
Grayson goes back into the hospital on Monday... this time with plenty of toys to keep him busy!
Thank you all for the support, we hope to continue to provide strength to these cancer warriors.
We are excited to announce the Foundation for Strength pillars to our organization.
These 5 pillars are what we have decided to dedicate ourselves to.
1. The Brett Johnston Strength Scholarship - This is a scholarship given once a year to a cancer warrior who personifies strength.
2. Family Support Fund - Through this fund we set aside money to be able to help out other warriors and their families. This includes taking the warrior and their family to a sports event, buying them toys they want, fixing something needed around the house, or even a trip somewhere.
3. Cancer Eradication Research Fund - We select a different cancer research fund each year to allocate money to.
4. Partner Fund - We want to work with other businesses to help spread the word and get better outreach. Each business will be able to designate a fund or research in their name to help raise funds and awareness to a needed cause. The more people we can reach, the more we can help. Through these partner funds we hope to reach more individuals that need support and strength.
5. Magical Christmas Fund - We work with children's hospitals to provide gifts/gift cards or any other needs for the children's Christmas.
There will be more announcements to come!! If you are interested or have recommendations for any of these funds please reach out to us on our website!

She turned 21 yesterday and wants to decorate 21 hospital rooms for kids in long term care. I'm too old to deserve presents per se, but in lieu of buying me a beer or a shot if we were out, please donate here to Wish Upon a teen." - Shane
