The Gaby Davis Foundation seeks to improve a child's quality of life during cancer treatment by providing a financial aid grant and support to children with cancer and their families. We believe that children with cancer will receive the most consistent medical care when their parents can focus on them, rather than on the additional burdens caused by a cancer diagnosis.
About GABY DAVIS FOUNDATION
The "Gaby Davis Foundation" was started in memory our daughter and friend Gabrielle Davis who lost her battle with childhood cancer in March 2007.
Her brave fight against cancer inspired us to fulfill her wish to help other families fighting this terrible beast. Gaby experienced a life changing event with her diagnosis but instead of feeling sorry for herself it made her more sensitive to others' needs. During a visit to the hospital pharmacy Gaby witnessed a parent break down because they didn't have enough money to buy the drugs they needed to bring their child home.
Gaby was quite shaken by the experience and shortly thereafter said this to her Dad...
"Dad, we sure are lucky to have so many friends helping us.
You think when my cancer is over, we can help people who don't have as many friends?
I wish all the kids with cancer had enough money to do the stuff we get to do."
Please help us to make this wish come true.
What People Are Saying
"Thank you so very much for everything. It was more than we could have asked for and it was definitely more than we expected. What a relief to know that I won’t have to worry about bills instead I can spend that time with my boys. "

"GDF provides support to families that is personal and compassionate and honours every family that they come to know. I believe that GDF offers families not only financial support but also the understanding and companionship that parents share when moving through a journey of pediatric cancer. "
